KDE Libs not found


I'm trying to install a program and it requires kdelibs.

checking for KDE... libraries /usr/lib, headers /usr/include/kde
checking if UIC has KDE plugins available... configure: error: not found - you need to install kdelibs first.

It looks like it is looking for those libs in /usr/lib. I belive they are located in /usr/lib/kde3 (I am running FC2). I tried to to a cp /usr/lib/kde3/* /usr/lib to put them in that directory. They are there now, however, I am still getting the same error. There aren't any options to specify where the kde libs should come from.

Also,
[root@jon jon]# rpm -qa | grep kde
kdelibs-devel-3.2.2-12.FC2
kdelibs-3.2.2-12.FC2
lockdev-1.0.1-2.3.1
kdegames-3.2.2-1
lockdev-devel-1.0.1-2.3.1
kdebase-3.2.2-4

My first question, is there a way to tell the computer as a whole (not just for this installation) to look in /usr/lib/kde3 for the kde libs? If not, what should I try to resolve this issue.

Do you have the kdelibs development (kdelibs-devel) installed? If you don't install it and run ./configure again.

What exactly is this application that you are trying to install?

Try configuring it this way,

$./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
$make
$make install

hopefully it will recognise your kde-libs devel files. It's still puzling though as to why it says it xan't find them.

[root@jon ksmoothdock-3.5.1]# ./configure --prefix='kde-config --prefix'
configure: error: expected an absolute directory name for --prefix: kde-config --prefix

Also, just to make sure, would these my kde libs?

Because I also tried installing a similar program (KXDocker) and used ./configure --with-extra-libs=/usr/lib/kde3 and still gave me an error that they were not installed.

You typed it wrongly, those are not single quotes, look closely

Mmmm, this is puzlling, I don't know what can fix you problems coz I am sure that the something is wrong with your kde-libs. Have you ever successfully compiled other KDE applications. I guess this could be a problem with the way Redhat packages KDE.
