configure: error: The xdg python module is required (pyxdg or python-xdg)


Ok, im trying to install avant window navigator, but when I try to run ./configure i get the following error message.

configure: error: The xdg python module is required (pyxdg or python-xdg)

I downloaded the latest pyxdg package from linuxpackages and installed it then reran ./configure and still have the same issues. any ideas?

Edit:
I just downloaded the source from their website and installed it that way and ran the ./configure again. I did not get the pyxdg error again but I got the following

checking for AWN... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gthread-2.0 gobject-2.0 desktop-agnostic >= 0.3.9 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.12.0 gdk-2.0 >= 2.12.0 dbus-glib-1) were not met:

No package 'desktop-agnostic' found

does this mean I need to install gnome before I can install AWN?

I guess, you can use some of the info in these notes about desktop-agnostic:

'desktop-agnostic' : please read the file docs/install.rst
https://code.launchpad.net/~malept/l...agnostic/trunk
No packages, no tar balls, please get the files with the bzr command :
bzr branch lp:libdesktop-agnostic

cd libdesktop-agnostic/
Code:
./waf configure --prefix=/usr --config-backends=gconf --vfs-backends=gio --desktop-entry-backends=glib
Required : 1) pygobject
Slack 13: disk 1 slackware/l/pygobject-2.16.1-i486-1.txz
(( http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/gnome/sources/pygobject/ ))

2) vala http://www.slacky.eu
http://www.slacky.eu/aadm/pkgs/index...er=13&pkg=1997
> vala-0.7.10-i486-1as.txz

3) gobject-introspection
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sourc...ospection/0.6/
gobject-introspection-0.6.9/ : ./configure --prefix=/usr

4) gconf http://www.slacky.eu
http://repository.slacky.eu/slackwar...2-i486-3as.txz

./waf
su , ./waf install
cd /usr/lib/pkgconfig/
<editor> desktop-agnostic.pc
.. and edit the version to 0.3.9
.....

The Avant Window Navigator also requires libgtop : slacky.eu / Slackbuilds,
and libwnck : 2.22.3
http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/gnome/sources/libwnck/2.22/
.....

Ok this might be a stupid question, but I don't understand the point of slackbuilds.org, as from what I can tell it doesn't have slackware packages on the site it has a link for the source code, then a link for the slackbuilds.org file. so im kinda lost on what to really do here, am I suppost to build my own slackware packages via the slackbuids.org files then install them or what?

correct me if im wrong, but is gtk, glib and all that crap all part of the gnome desktop, because Im trying to install gtk+2.18.* and it's erroring out too, I juust don't get it, it's one error after another, try to install one thing to fix one error and that gives you and error. I never remember slackware being this bad when trying to install stuff. Any clarrification would be great

GTK, GLIB, etc. are not only for Gnome, but for a
hundred other applications. If you have Slackware 13,
the system version = 2.14.7 , will do fine.
Changing it : Don't do that. Will usually trash a lot
more, than you expect.

Buiding a "Slackbuild" package is an easy thing.
Find lots of HOWTO examples with Google ..
http://www.slackwiki.org/Links
.....

P.S. : The Avant Window Navigator is probably a Gnome only thing,
may work only on the Gnome Desktop.
