GTK install/config, path problems


I'm trying to get gtk-gnutella running, got it downloaded fine but it can't find my gtk library. For that matter, I can't find the file it's asking for either - gtk-config. I've done several finds without avail...nothing in /etc/gtk seems helpful here.

I suspect I don't have GTK properly installed or something (this is a out-of-the-box SuSE 7.3 setup and I've tried installing GTK directly from the YaST setup disks)...at the very least, it isn't in the path. For that, where do I tweak the path for the root shell? (isn't /root/.bashrc for instance) Also, are changes made to PATH variables in the various .rc files effective immediately or is there a reset task I should do?

I tried re-installing a fresh version of gtk, (gtk+-1.2.8-1.i386.rpm) but it gave me a handful of stupid errors:

error: failed dependencies:
gtk is needed by gkrellm-1.2.1-33
gtk is needed by libglade-0.16-195

So basically, it's a mess but I don't think I'm that far away, it's probably a combination of one or two stupid things that I seem unable to fix.

Thanks for any help!

you need to install gtk-devel.

ok, thanks, did that...so where the heck is it now? still no luck finding gtk.h, gtk-config, or anything else that seems helpful for the config job.

the package does 100% contain gtk-config, search for it with locate (and updatedb), and naturauualy make sure you're not installing gtk2, which is noticably different.
