linux newbie needs help with gtk+ and tk


Hi everyone!

I have just installed debian linux and now I need to install
gtk+ 1.2.10

but when i run ./configure, I encounter:

checking for X... no
configure: error:
*** X libraries or include files not found. Check 'config.log' for
*** more details.

In the config.log it says:
configure:4607:27: X11/Intrinsic.h: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
#line 4606 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
#include <X11/Intrinsic.h>

Now I have googled for a while, and still cant find this x library package, anyone know where could I get it?


And second problem with tk8.4.5 install .... when I run "make"
I get billions of compile errors... I just wonder why..

It is usually suggested to get things like GTK+ through your distro's package manager, rather than compile them yourself. If you don't know how to use apt-get, there's a how-to here. I think you'd probably just do a "apt-get install gtk+" or something. I'm not certain, as I don't use Debian. apt-get should take care of any dependencies for you.
