Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Here is the error I get while trying to run configure on libgnomeui package. I need this package for some application which pops up configuration windows

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnome-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnome-2.0' found
configure: error: Library requirements (libgnome-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libgnomecanvas-2.0 >= 2.0.0 libbonoboui-2.0 >= 2.0.0 gconf-2.0 >= 1.1.11 pango >= 1.1.2) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
It complains about absent packages, i do have them as shown here:
I even seem to have libgnomeui...but my application Linphone seems not to be able to find it......here is that error:

Libgnome and/or libgnomeui are missing. For that reason the gnome interface cannot be compiled.
* Compilation of gnome interface is disabled.
* Console interface will be compiled.
Now type 'make' to compile, and then 'make install' as root to install it.
According to my experience, all the .pc files need to be in /usr/lib/pkgconfig or have the appropriate links in /usr/lib/pkgconfig. It seems that pkgconfig ignores the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable. I built gnome 2.8 from source and had to manually make a lot of symlinks after installing each package since I installed all the Gnome specific stuff to /opt/gnome.
I am having a similar problem. When I try to make a new gnomemm 2.0 project in Anjuta, it tells me it can't find the package 'libgnomeuimm-2.0' and that I should adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.
However, I've got a later version of libgnomeuimm installed (the most recent from Synaptic-- I believe 2.6) and the pc file is in /usr/lib/pkgconfig already.
