Enlightenment Window Manger Help!


Hey guys, I am using Slack 9.0 and am trying to install the Enlightenment WM. Anyways, when I first used ./configure to get it up and running it told me I needed IMLib so I got the latest version from the EMW website. I compiled it, installed it, and now Enlightenment STILL tells me I don't have IMLib installed. It says this in the terminal:

checking for imlib-config... /usr/local/bin/imlib-config
checking for IMLIB - version >= 1.9.8... no
*** Could not run IMLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding IMLIB or finding the wrong
*** version of IMLIB. If it is not finding IMLIB, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
***
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
ERROR: Enlightenment needs a system with Imlib 1.9.8 or higher
You can obtain it from:
ftp://ftp.enlightenment.org/pub/enlightenment/
ftp://www.rasterman.com/pub/enlightenment/
ftp://ftp.labs.redhat.com/pub/imlib/
configure: error: Fatal Error: no Imlib detected.

I tried editing /etc/ld.so.conf but don't know which line to change. I don't know what to do with LD_LIBRARY_PATH - and if that's the answer to the question I will need to be told how to do so as I am a dumb n00b!!



Any help appreciated.

"I tried editing /etc/ld.so.conf but don't know which line to change."

You probably need to add a line for the imlib

"I don't know what to do with LD_LIBRARY_PATH "

If you add a line to /etc/ld.so.conf you don't need to do anything with LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

You can probably find out where the imlib with the following command:
find / -iname "*imlib*"

If the find command gives you several possibilities look for a directory that has files whose names start with libim.

Or you can try:
find / -iname "*libim*"

After you get /etc/ld.so.conf edited then run the command:
ldconfig

Most distributions run ldconfig at every boot, but with Slackware you can't assume things like that.

Change /home/user/.xinitrc and /root/.xinitrc to run Enlightenment
