mplayer trouble


I'm installing MPlayer. I got this error even though I have GTK installed. How do I fix this?

Quote:
Checking for inet6 ... yes
Checking for gethostbyname2 ... yes
Checking for GUI ... yes
Checking for XShape extension ... yes
Checking for GTK version ...
Error: The GUI requires GTK devel packages (which were not found).

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

I think you need the gtk-devel files. These are usually not in the standard gtk package. If you know for sure that they are installed, try to configure with a prefix (./configure --help for all options)

You might have GTK, but it's asking for the GTK development packages (gtk-devel).

do you have gtk+-1.x installed? (gtk2 will not work)

also, slack doesn't have -devel packages ( with the exception of xorg).

in a terminal:

$ ls /var/log/packages | grep gtk
gtk+-1.2.10-i386-3
gtk+2-2.6.4-i486-1gw10.1


the one in red is what you need, note that with slack the packages are not split like rpm for deb based distro's, the package has everything in it.
