Unhappy idesk install problem


When I try to compile the idesk-0.5.5 I get these annoying massages:

#make
for dir in src; do cd $dir; make all; cd ..; done
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/gotzev/FC1FluxBox/idesk1/src'
g++ -g -W `pkg-config gdk-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0 librsvg-2.0 --cflags` -c XDesktopContainer.cpp -o XDesktopContainer.o
Package libcroco was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcroco.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'libcroco', required by 'librsvg', not found

I've read about the same problem, but nobody gives the answer that works for me.
I'm using Fedora Core 1 and have installed almost everything from the distribution - it
still doesn't work. Please help, I'm using linux at my office so I need desktop icons for the
colleagues that are new to linux.

Missing some dependencies. I suggest installing some of those.

I've already installed the packages that are reported as missing. I think it's something with path and the pakage-config tool, but I am not sure.

Thanks anyway!
