Question No X support Found when trying to install imlib2


I was trying to install imlib2 as a dependent file for Enlightenment, but when I used ./configure it was almost finished when this set of messages came up

checking X11/X.h usability... no
checking X11/X.h presence... no
checking for X11/X.h... no
configure: error: no X support found. Use --x-includes and --x-libraries to specify the X
path on your system, or --without-x to disable X support.


What is X support and how do I get it so that I can install Englightenment and adesklets?

You need the X Windows development package. The development package will provide the header (*.h) files configure is looking for. These packages are typically called xorg-dev or xorg-devel. Search using your package manager.

Forgive a complete newbie's ignorance - but how do you seach for the Xorg-devel or xorg-dev using a package manager? I tried opening the Automatix, but I don't see anything in there about these files.

I don't know, I don't use a package manager. Why not start at the Automatix website http://www.getautomatix.com/? Maybe they have a users' manual or something.

Question

Hi bajanpoet,

I have the same problem as yours when installing Imlib2? Have you figured out how to solve it?

Actually, I could install Imlib2 successfully from source file or using synaptic package manager, which means my X library is there? But now I want to cross compile Imlib2 using arm-linux-g++ instead g++. Then I have the same error as yours...

Could you help me on this? Thanks in advance!
