I have no idea why, but my roommate tried iDesk installing the imlib version 1.9.14 (downloaded at linuxpackages.net, on tgz format) and it worked for him... (BTW, both of us are using Slackware, his 9.1 and mine 9.0) So i gave it a try (since I didnt know what to do): i did 'uninstall' on the version of imlib I had, which was 1.9.0, and installed 1.9.14... and then, as simple as that, idesk compiled sweet n' easy! :-) I hate him, he always get the right packages! DAMN IT!!! :-)
Well, hopefully someone will Google this...
