I am having several problems too... I have tried all of the above. So I first do export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/bin and that tells me:
checking for libgift >= 0.10.0... Package libgift was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgift.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgift' found

so then I do:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig"

and then it seems to find libgift but has a problem with gtk. as follows:
checking for libgift >= 0.10.0... yes
checking LIBGIFT_CFLAGS... -I/usr/local/include
checking LIBGIFT_LIBS... -L/usr/local/lib -lgift
checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3... 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) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

I do an rpm grep and get this:
[root@x1-6-00-20-e0-6c-19-4d giftui-0.2.0]# rpm -qa | grep -i 'gtk'
libgtk+1.2-1.2.10-32mdk
libgtk+2.0_0-2.2.1-2mdk
libgtkhtml1.1_3-1.1.8-2mdk
gtk+mdk-0.1.6-14mdk
libgtk+-x11-2.0_0-2.2.1-2mdk
gtk+2.0-2.2.1-2mdk
gtkdialogs-2.0-3mdk
perl-GTK2-0.0.cvs.2003.03.04.1-2mdk

so I do have gtk installed, any ideas what I can do to get it to work? Thanks.

I also got this message -
giFToxic: error while loading shared libraries: libgift.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So as root I did -
cd /lib
ln /usr/local/lib/libgift.so.0.0.0 libgift.so.0

Which did the trick.
Is there a better solution?

I'm a Linux noob so please stay with me here..

But what do you mean you? What exactly did you do to overcome this problem.

I got the "cd /lib" part but what does the next line accomplish??

ok Phweedo np.
"ln" is short for link.
Basically you use "ln" to make a link to another file. A link is a bit like a windows shortcut.

"In" in this case creates a link called "libgift.so.0" in "/lib"
This link points to "/usr/local/lib/libgift.so.0.0.0", this is the latest version of libgift which is in "/usr/local/lib"

You see this method used many times in linux it allows apps to find new versions of libs or whatever easily.

More info? try these -
man ln
info ln

yeah I could not be bollixed with giFToxic after I got some error so I switched to giFTcurs [as it was recommended by giFT] and install went fine.

I posted instructions in this forum.

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.


Please post if you find the solution to this. I just got this error (except trying to install apollon) after a couple of hours tracking down all the dependencies for getting giFT and the plugins on my machine. I can't find this file on google...

....well...if your determined to use it [and not giFTcurs as I recommended earlier - seems there have no complaints on that]...
It may not be linked -
run a search for it on your system:

find / -name "*libgift.so.0*"

Search thru all the README/INSTALL files and see if there are any parameters to specify when configureing. search their site too for any mention of it.

Keffin, i take it as said that you've got giFT installed.
Apollon is worth installing, its my client of choice. Hope this helps.

libgift.so.0 is a link to the current gift library.
You should find libgift installed in - /usr/local/lib
But Apollon like giFToxic expects it to be in - /lib
So we need a link (shortcut) in /lib pointing to the current gift library which is - /usr/local/lib/libgift.so.0.0.0
This is done like this...

as super user
cd /lib
ln /usr/local/lib/libgift.so.0.0.0 libgift.so.0

Worked for me.

Glad to help.

Yep I've used giFTcurs and still have it installed. Its very stable and I like the way the middle button toggles the search & transfer views. I use it to test the network if I get a problem with another client.

Apollon has a few nice features tho -
- auto run/shutdown of giFT deamon.
- timing of individual files.
- preview player.
- configuration menu.
- kde stuff -
-- systray integration.
-- file tree navigation.
-- search tabs.

search tabs sounds nice - might try it later but I think I like stability and less overhead. I may it if I need anything alittle snazzier. Thanks for letting us know it's capabilities.
