pkgconfig issues


When i try to compile an application, with the ./configure command i get an error message about the pkgconfig can not find the gtk+-2.0 and the other g lib. files. i have the gtk+ and the gtk devel libs installed and they are located in my /usr/lib/pkgconfig directory. I have searched on this board about this issue and i have done some of thethings that the people have suggested. one of them trying to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the proper directory to have it find the right libs. but that does not seem to help. Does anyone know of another way about doing this? any suggestions are appreciated.



Thanks,
Garrett

Anyone? This is driving me nuts and i cant compile the apps that i want as they need the gtk libs. I have them all installed but the pkgconfig is complaining it cant find them. if someone can help me with modifying the paths or come up with another answer, it would be much appreciated.

Well, one way is to go into the "Makefile" and edit the $PATH manually!!

Well I had the same problem and no matter what I did (like doing $export PKG_CONFIG_PATH etc.)
did not work. Ultimately i had to go back top RPMS and install using the RPMS available for my software (I was trying to install GNOME 2.6)

Hope this helps...
