Error when building source codes...


Whenever I try to build a piece of software I get the following error:

Code:
checking if UIC has KDE plugins available... configure: error: not found - you need to install kdelibs first.
Now before anyone says to install kdelibs, I already have it installed. I have version 3.3.2 running in Slackware 10. Any help is appreciated.

As near as I can tell, this is a case sensitivity problem with an "fgrep" on the output of the uic program. I tried to report it but I could never get properly registered at the bug report site. I always have to go in and manually edit the admin/acinclude.m4.in file.

Tricky.

I don't recall the particulars. You can edit the file and search for that error message about KDE plugins. Then add some comments characters to skip the code that checks for the error condition. Other than that you can search the LinuxQuestions archives for all the other times this has come up. Finally, you can notify the KDE people that this probloem has come up yet again.

Ok, I dug a little further. I found a file that I had modified. You need to edit the file and search for KDE_CHECK_UIC_PLUGINS. The first occurance if the definition. The second occurance is the invocation. You need to comment out the invocation as I have shown below. Then you should send a bug report to the KDE guys and complain about the grep case-sensativity problem. For your reference, the failing grep command is 31 lines below the definition (first occurance) of KDE_CHECK_UIC_PLUGINS in the file. This problem has plagued me for the longest time. It may be that the KDE developers have some obscure point about the way Redhat installs KDE. I'm not sure; it's a complex issue. I believe that they have overlooked something. But considering how many people have encountered this problem I think it would behoove them to do something about it. I'll start looking into it as well.



all_libraries="$all_libraries $USER_LDFLAGS"
all_includes="$all_includes $USER_INCLUDES"
AC_SUBST(all_includes)
AC_SUBST(all_libraries)

#if test -z "$1"; then
#KDE_CHECK_UIC_PLUGINS
#fi

ac_kde_libraries="$kde_libdir"

AC_SUBST(AUTODIRS)
