libz can't be found


I'm trying to install kooldock on an Ubuntu 5.0.4 machine. The problem is that it can't find libz (or zlib). I know it's installed though.

Thanks for any help!

Are you trying to compile kooldock? If so, you'll need the -dev packages for zlib and everything else it needs too.

Apparently you're missing something. My first guess is all of the KDE crap, IIRC Ubuntu doesn't ship with KDE by default.

I've installed all the KDE stuff, infact I was posting the thread under KDE.

Is there away to point configure to my libz file?

How about you post the output of the configure script as well as dpkg -l 'zlib*'

Well the Debian package for zlib1g-dev puts the include in /usr/include, if the configure script can't find it there then it's extremely broken. Post the output of the configure script as well.

The entire thing?

Edit: Actually it seems to get past libz just fine now.

Edit2: I just have some uninstalled stuff but other then that I think I'm fine. Thanks for your help!
