enlightenment install problem?


Hi everybody!

trying to install enlightenment from source, but i can't get passed the freetype dependency... I installed freetype (from freetype.org) but the ./configure script of enlightenment keeps telling me "enlightenment needs a system with libttf.so (freetype)" am i missing something?

thanx in advance,
-= iluvatar =-

edit: i did run /sbin/ldconfig after installing freetype...

1) run 'updatedb' and then 'slocate libttf.so' to see where your libttf.so is hiding
2) check to see that the path for libttf.so is in your /etc/ld.so.conf
3) try 'ldconfig' to update the libraries

Now try 'make distclean' and then './configure' in your enightnement source tree to see if the script can locate your freetype stuff
