Abiword 2.4.0


The latest abiword will not compile without libgnomeprint


Quote:
checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... yes
checking for libgnomeprint-2.2 >= 2.2.0 libgnomeprintui-2.2 >= 2.2.0... Package libgnomeprint-2.2 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomeprint-2.2.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnomeprint-2.2' found
configure: error: Error: libgnomeprint-2.2 >= 2.2.0 libgnomeprintui-2.2 >= 2.2.0 required
Anyone one know a way around this requirement. I am running ICEwm an do not want to get caught up chasing down all the dependencies libgomeprint may take.

This also has interesting implications for the next Slackware release. Will Pat get sucked into
adding the better part of gnome just to support gtk dependent apps?

Did you try the --disable-gnome "switch" for ./configure? Pat's AbiWord build script has the following configure "switches":

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--disable-debug \
--disable-gnome \
--enable-threads \
$ARCH-slackware-linux

And this for abiword-plugins:

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--disable-debug \
--disable-gnome \
$ARCH-slackware-linux

$ARCH = i486

You can check out his build script on CD 4 in the directory /source/xap/abiword. Not sure if this will work for 2.4.0, but you could give it a try.

HTH,
MMYoung

I tried the --disable-gnome switch and still get the same error message. I fell into the new release right after it was posted. I'll check in a few days and maybe will be able to tell if it is a bug or just a step in the evolution of Abiword.
