gnomeConf.sh - a missing file?


I'm trying to install gphotocoll-0.7 from source (no SuseRPM) but configure stops with an error.
It is checking for gnomeConf.sh in /usr/local/lib but its not there.
According to configure gnomeConf.sh is generated by "gnome-libs install" but I cannot find it anywhere.

Has this file got another name which I have to link to?

I'm running Suse8.0 and gnome 1.4 and am just starting with Linux.

Hope someone can help.

Try doing this and see if it loaded to a different directory:

find / -name "gnomeConf.sh" -print 2>/dev/null

if it did, just make sure its in your path by adding this to .bashrc in your home directory:

export PATH=$PATH:<directory name>

Otherwise you may need to do other research to see if you can get the file and put it where it is supposed to be.

Thanks for replying jfshadow.

No result from find.

Is this a case of my need to learn more about Linux (I do) or is this something odd? I'm not sure where to go from here.

Found it! At least I think I have. Its called obGnomeConf.sh. I put a copy of this file in /usr/local/lib and renamed it.

Now for the next problem - configure can't find GTK. Expect a new thread ...
