I am trying to install Gaim v0.66 from source. I installed Gtk+-2.2.2 and deps: glib-2.2.2, atk-1.2.4, and pango-1.2.3, all from source (and all without errors). I then tried to configure gaim, but messages saying that perl, audio, NAS, and spellcheck (aspell), weren't supported. I don't know what NAS is, but I know I want support for the rest.
I installed aspell (without error) and Gtkspell (with following error):
configure: error: You must have the aspell or pspell dev libraries to build gtkspell.
I searched high and low for source and .deb packages for aspell-dev, "dev aspell" and I can't find anything resembling development package for aspell. I thought then "I can live without spellcheck," and installed the other packages (all else went fine). However, when I tried to re-configure gaim, I get:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.0.1, but GLIB (2.2.2)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
*** GLib 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is
*** always available at http://www.gtk.org/.
I don't remember installing any other version of Glib other than 2.2.2, and I didn't uninstall v2.2.2. I don't want to find out the hard way what LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH are/do, so I am asking here.
Please help me configure gaim (with spellcheck support, if possible). Thanks!
By the way, "apt-get install gaim" provides gaim 0.58, and I would prefer the new features of 0.66 (especially gtk2-based GUI).
