Problem trying to install gnome cups manager on slackware
 
I am trying to install the gnome-cups-manager source from the gnome ftp site.
When I run ./configure though, I get this error:

Code:

checking for libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libgnome-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libbonobo-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libgnomecups-1.0 >= 0.1.4... Package libgnomecups-1.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomecups-1.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnomecups-1.0' found
 
configure: error: Library requirements (libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libgnome-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libbonobo-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libgnomecups-1.0 >= 0.1.4) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

root@velocity:/home/at/bin/gnome-cups-manager-0.17# echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libgnomecups-1.0.pc
root@velocity:/home/at/bin/gnome-cups-manager-0.17#

As you can see, I did set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH, but it seems to ignore it?
Anyone have a suggestion?

Hi acjt,

you should set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to "/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/", not "/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libgnomecups-1.0.pc". PKG_CONFIG_PATH works the same as the PATH variable. Hope this helps.


regards,
