Configure: error: You must have the XTest library to build synergy
 
Hello, I'm trying to install synergy from source on my Xubuntu box, when I do ./configure I get :

Configure: error: You must have the XTest library to build synergy

I installed all the XTest packages using Synaptic Package Manager, but I still get this error. How do I get this library? or install it? I'm confused!

Thanks

you're probably missing a matching -dev package to actually get the headers you need to compile against a library rather than just use it.

I know this is sort of a late reply, but other people might run into the same issue and find this thread while looking for a solution (just as I did):

Code:

yum install libXtst libXtst-devel libXext libXext-devel
cd /path/to/synergy/source
export CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/lib/X11'
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/synergy
sed -e 's/X_DISPLAY_MISSING 1/X_DISPLAY_MISSING 0/' -i'~' config.h
make
make install

You're welcome.
