10.1 trying to install xfce
Hi. For the past two nights, I've been trying to install xfce because I've only heard good things about it from people in the Firefox community. It took all of last night to figure out that I needed to install my GLib using root, not my username, and now that works fine. Now, the challenge is gtk+. I grabbed the latest tar.gz from the offical website (the 2.6.7 version) and followed their instructions. From the console, I'm in as root, and did the tar xvfz or whatever thing, unpacked it, then did ./configure --prefix=/opt/gtk like it said and I get:
checking for glib-2.0>= 2.6.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.8.0... Package glib-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing 'glib-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glib-2.0' found
configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.8.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
So... I tried installing pango, but that proved tough because it said I needed some weird font files. Since I'm new to Linux, can someone step me through the dependencies and the commands I need to get gtk+ to install from top to bottom? I'm willing to be patient!
Thank you very much,
