Lopster install and GTK problems


I am running SUSE 9.0 Professional default full install.

I want to install lopster but it gives me this error,

checking for gtk-config... no
checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.
configure: error: GTK is required!

As GTK v2.2.3-36 is already installed I then download the latest version and try to install but I get this error,

*** The pkg-config script could not be found. Make sure it is
*** in your path, or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable
*** to the full path to pkg-config.
*** Or see http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig to get pkg-config.
configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

GLIB v2.2.3 and pango v1.2.5-34 are both installed so I install pkgconfig with no errors.

I re-try the GTK install but get the same error.

Now I am stuck. Any ideas on why products that are installed on my system are not being recognised bu other products installers ?

type:
whereis pkgconfig

and put the resulting path (/usr/lib/pkgconfig for example) to your PKG_CONFIG_PATH by typing:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/pkgconfig"

Hope that helps.

Thanks for that. I still get an error,

checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1... Package glib-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glib-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

So I typed,

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig","/usr/lib/pkgconfig"

for the path to glib-2.0.pc

and export listed it as,

declare -x PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig,/usr/lib/pkgconfig"

but when running ./configure I still get the same error,
