error when type ./configure
 
this the error when i try to compile with ./configure :


checking for msgfmt... /usr/bin/msgfmt
checking for gmsgfmt... /usr/bin/msgfmt
checking for xgettext... /usr/bin/xgettext
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

You most likely need the X-dev package. It should be on your install CD, but you don't mention:
Your distro;
The application you are trying to install;
Or versions of either ;)
So I could be wrong. Please try to provide as much information as you can, it will help when we are trying to figure out the problem.

Cool

you probably either need to install the X header files, or add your includes and library paths (--x-includes=DIR --x-libraries=DIR). (the error message tells you what to do: "check your X installation and add the correct paths" ;) ).

read through the INSTALL file in the configure directory (more INSTALL) for information specific to the software you are trying to configure.
