Pango not found while installing gtk+-2.8.7


I've installed pango-1.10.1 from source with checkinstall. I also did a search and found that cairo-1.0.2 needed to be installed first. I removed both of them and reinstalled in the correct order. When I run ./configure in the gtk+-2.8.7 directory it stops here:

checking Pango flags... configure: error:
*** Pango not found. Pango built with Cairo support is required
*** to build GTK+. See PangoWebsite for Pango information.

remove pango, then download pango with cairo support, and compile pango from source, to do this, there should be a file called install in the source archive with instructions on how to do this.

Shouldn't be able to build and install cairo first, then build and install pango? I believe the configure script in the pango tarball will sniff out cairo and configure that support accordingly.

Peace...

hi I had this problem. I found a solution that worked for me.

It ended up that in the pango config.log it told me I hadn't used a high enough version of cairo. I had something like v1.2.0. and needed v1.2.2 or higher.

I simply installed the new cairo and then redid pango and it was fine.

The configure script did not detect cairo on my system. I had to add --enable-pangocairo to the configure commandline to get it to work. After that I was able to install gtk+
