giFToxic install problem...


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.


how can i fix this?

assuming this is on redhat (please give more information next time!!) install the gtk2-devel package.

where can i get the gtk2-devel package? i tried the gtk website, but i didn't find it. and you assumed correctly with this being on redhat.

edit: ok, i rechecked the gtk website and i found it, but it was 2.0.1,.. when i tried to install it i got an error saying that i needed 2.1.0. i couldn't find that one.

sorry for the double post... how can i just edit the pkgconfig path so that it points to gtk+-2.0 instead of the older version?

don't install the source, the rpm you want will be on your distro cd's.

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

before you do the ./configure, do:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/bin

that should work. if you log out and then back in before installing, you'll have to enter the pkg config path again.

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

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=~/giFT/lib/

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.
