I tried both your suggestions, all my *.pc files are in /usr/lib/pkgconfig, /opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig & /opt/kde3/lib/pkgconfig.Locate is a great tool, I don't know why SuSe doesn't install it by default. The problem is as I thought, the installation of GtkGLExt from rpm did not create the file gtkglext.pc anywhere in my system. Therefore pkg-config does not know gtkglext exists and ./configure fails. Is there any way I can update the pkg-config database or manually create gtkglext.pc?
when you said it wasn't in the /opt/gnome location, i just assumed it would be in the /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, etc.
is there a development package associated with gtkglext? it might be in there.
if not, you could try removing the rpm and building the program (gtkglext) from source and see if that creates it. then just procede as above: updatedb and locate the file (or just look manually) and then export the path.
