abiword-2.8.1: Make error "gsf/gsf-input-gio.h: No such file or directory"


I have Slackware 13 running XFCE. I did not install KDE, but did include the libraries required for KDE, Gnome et al.

I am trying to install Abiword 2.8.1

After installing the wv-1 library, configure ran OK.
But when I try to run make, I get the following error:
Code:
gsf/gsf-input-gio.h: No such file or directory
Web searching with that exact text only turns up a single post, which doesn't really seem to answer the question.

I have checked my system, and it does not seem to have gst/gio. gio seems to be additional to the base gsf library bits and pieces.

I cannot find how to install the necessary library(ies). Any ideas?

cheers.

Slackware's libgsf doesnt use gio. You'd have to rebuild it yourself removing --without-gio from the script (or replacing it with --with-gio).
That is probably gonna get solved eventually, but thats the case right now.

<plug>Use the abiword SlackBuild on SlackBuilds.org</plug>. It handles this and a couple other issues concerning the help system and the collaboration plugin.

Thanks chaps!
I went off looking for a bit more info, like which script to add the --with-gio switch to... then found the SlackBuild site. I felt a bit guilty downloading the SlackBuild abiword, as I felt I was dodging the problem - but since you recommend it, my conscience is clear.

Well, that wasn't as easy as I hoped...

I ran abiword.SlackBuild. It ran for about 40 odd minutes.I was then greeted with:

Code:
OXMLi_PackageManager.cpp:341: error: 'gsf_open_pkg_lookup_rel_by_id' was not declared in this scope
OXMLi_PackageManager.cpp:341: error: 'gsf_open_pkg_rel_get_target' was not declared in this scope

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I can't find anything relating to either error messages.

A bit more hunting shows it to be something to do with a C or C++ script...

OK, I figured there was something wrong with the SlackBuild scripting, but I'm not qualified to even guess what. But most likely, there isn't anything wrong, and the problem lies between the chair and the keyboard...

Anyway, out of curiosity, I reckoned the SlackBuild installation proecess had dealt with the original gsf/gio problem and created the necessary libraries, so I tried the original installation package from Abisource.

This time, ./configure, make and make install all ran OK, with no error messages.

I then tried to run abiword, for the first time, but got this message:
Code:
bash-3.1# /usr/local/bin/abiword
/usr/local/bin/abiword: error while loading shared libraries: libabiword-2.8.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I then found this post, relating to the problem.

But, where iamhimay writes "ln -sf /usr/lib/libabiword-2.8.so /lib/", Slackware 13 uses /usr/local/lib/, so the path is /usr/local/lib/libabiword-2.8.so

So far, Abiword works OK, but I haven't fully tested it yet.

The reason it seems to build when you don't use the slackbuild is that you aren't building like half of abiword (the plugins).

My hunch is that other stuff you tried to do to get this working broke gsf. Use the stock packages.

From what I gather, the original problem was that, with Slackware 13, gsf does not come with gio. Trying to install with SlackBuild fixed that.

What the C++/C related problem with the SlackBuild package was, I don't know.

But now the original packages from Abisource work. The issue with the package in the wrong place does not seem confined to Slackware, or my PC, as the solution was found on an Ubuntu forum.
