Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i am trying to get giFToxic 0.0.9, it requires gtk+-2.0 or higher. i just installed GNOME 2.2.2 so i know i should have gtk+-2.0. here is there error that i get when i try to configure giFToxic.
checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3 libgift >= 0.10.0... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3 libgift >= 0.10.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

ok, here was the thing to get it compiled right., you need to get ImageMagick,... you can find this at sourceforge.net. when i got it compiled, i started having a new problem. it says i need openFT, so i got OpenFT,.. i try to install it and it says it can't find libgift.pc,...
i could have sworn i installed imagemagik, which is what confused me. i'll try to install/reinstall it and see what happens on my machine. maybe between the two of us we can figure this out. sounds like a ton of library dependency issues.
> edit: yep, installing or reinstalling imagemagick seems to have worked for me, which is strange, i thought for sure i installed that when i installed slack. anyway, check the installation page for the libraries giFT needs for OpenFT (section 3.1): http://gift.sourceforge.net/docs.php...html#id2847031
you might need to make sure you have all of those -- it says some are mandatory (mandatory, but not dependent, weird ). gl

my big problem right now is when i try to install OpenFT or giFToxic, i do the ./configure and then it says it can't find libgift.pc,... i found libgift.so and libgift.la but no libgift.pc,... anything i'm doing wrong?
well,... after much time trying to figure this out, i finally found libgift.pc, i got giFT installed, i installed giFTcurs just to see if it worked out,... the installation went fine,.. giFTcurs works out just great,... i found that libgift.pc was in your giFT cvs folder (if you used cvs) so i just did this
to get to the file,.. that worked great,.. it found it and installed just fine,.. but now i get this error <_<
giFToxic: error while loading shared libraries: libgift.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
so i'm going to try to figure that one out unless someone has something to offer on that subject.
