Installing GFTP...and gtk, atk, pango...


Hi all

So, getting on a bit it with my Linux experience...

Time to install GFTP.

./configure brings up an error saying it needs GTK+ 2, otherwise it can only do commandline.

So I go to install GTK... anyways, long story short it seems I needed to install GLIB, Pango and ATK as well. I did those, all the same way:

./configure
make
make install

they went without a hitch.

So I go back to do GTK, but I get an error at the end of configure:

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >=2.6.0 atk >=1.0.1 pango >=1.8.0 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 am at a loose end...what shall I do?

Thanks

whoah there....! one step at a time.

you've not filled in your profile, and not provided as much information in your post, so i don't know what distro you are on, but i'd assume that you're on mandrake, suse or another RPM based distro. assuming this, i'd bet money that GTK is already installed just fine, what is not installed however will be the matching gtk-devel package that is required to actually compile source code that uses that library. this is the same for a good proportional of rpm based libraries and programs. if you install GTK from source then you run the risk of breaking your system, as you can end up with two versions of GTK in different locations on your system, which will hit trouble eventually.

so for things like GTK, i's strongly advise you stick with RPM's even if you wish to compile other apps from source.

acid: Thanks for the reply. I have updated my profile, I guess I was/am just a bit eager!

So does what you said still stand? Is knoppix an RPM based distro?

Knoppix is debian-based. But you have to install those packages or possibly the dev packages as I don't know what's installed by default in knoppix.

You can use apt to install those packages named above. Run "apt-get update" to update your packages list with the newest packages on the server. Then you can "apt-get install packagename" which will install the package.

Just do "apt-get install gtk2" (or something similar) and stuff like atk, pango etc will also be installed.

Should you decide to install from source, for whatever reason, the order is:
glib
pango
atk
gtk
and for each use ./configure --prefix=/usr
cos it makes life a lot easier!

Komakino:

I thought I would re-do it all as you have written so...

GLIB 2.6
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install

That went OK.

Then pango.

./configure --prefix=/usr

at the end of that it said:

'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.6.0 but GLIB 2.6.2 was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best to remove the old version of glib. You may also fix the error by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or by editing /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is required by your system. If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point to the correct configuration files

configure: error:

Glib 2.5.7 or better is required. The Latest version of Glib is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.

So guys and gals, what so I do now?

Thanks

Hong

Try "apt-get install synaptic". Synaptic ia a GUI for apt. Once you have install apt, use that to broswe or search for available packages and install the ones you need.

Actually, I never thought of that, that would solve all the problems with just a few commands

I'm telling you now, save yourself some trouble, add this to your /etc/profile

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/

good advice, but that won't help him here with the --prefix=/usr option. If you install a library, you have to remove the old one first. pretty much all distro's come with glib-2.x ( but rpm/deb distro's split them).
Make sure you remove the original package first then go back to the glib source directory and redo make install ( you really should make a package of it for easier removal/upgrade later on).

Thank you all

I did apt-get install gftp, its done its thing...but where is it? I cant seem to find it

Also, that last bit went straight over my head. Installing/uninstalling libraries?

I'm guessing when I do ./configure make make install its installing the library, how would I uninstall it?

So do I add that line in?

Thanks

PS whats the diff between ./configure and ./compile, Ive seen references to both of these before make/make install...
