Missing dependencies, can't compile


I really don't understand what is going on. This all started with an attempt to compile and install gdesklets. Although I had downloaded all of the dependencies and installed them I was getting missing depency errors (including ones i know i had installed). So, in an attempt to fix it more, I attempted to compile and isntall the latest GTK. I went to the GTK website, got all the dependencies did the "./configure, make, make install" on all of them, then attempted to run the GTK ./configure. Error! Missing libjpg, libpng, libtiff...all things i had JUST installed. So, i tried configuring without the three things, and then i got another error:

Quote:
configure: error: Xft version 2 is required for x11 target
What can I do to fix this? I try a yum update, but that says I don't need anything (i'm only using livna).

HELP!!....fyi i'm using FC4.

"I really don't understand what is going on."

Try installing the development versions of the missing packages.

okay, i took a breath and installed the devel packages I needed to install gtk+. Now it's saying:

Quote:
checking for fontconfig >= 2.2... Package fontconfig was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `fontconfig.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'fontconfig' found

configure: error: Library requirements (fontconfig >= 2.2) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

ok, i'm trying to fix the pkg_config_path. I know i've got the library (it's in /usr/lib/pkgconfig) so how do i tell the./configure where it is?

You need to install the fontconfig-devel package.
