Acidrip gnome dep. issues --or-- Man, the rabbit hole goes deep.


Yesterday I decided that I was going to install acidrip-0.12.

Everything compiles nicely. I think I'm good to go. Wrong. When I run it, after looking at the errors returned, I find that I need Gtk2.pm. Google tells me that I need gtk-perl. Not a problem.

I get Gtk-Perl-0.7008. Can't exec gnome-config. A little google time later I figure out that I need GConf.

I get GConf-1.2.0. Upon configure time I'm told that I don't have the following appropriate libraries: gmodule >= 2.0.1 gobject >= 2.0.1 ORBit >= 2.4.0 linc >= 0.5.0. My dear friend google explains to me that gmodule and gobject are all part of gnomelib.

I get glib-2.4.2. Everything configures nicely. Everything installs nicely. "Thank God."

I hop back over to the GConf directory and run configure again. I figure I'll check and make sure that those modules are now there. Nope.

Maybe they're not in PKG_CONFIG_PATH. So I search my system and don't come up with anything.

"I'll skip those and come back." So I try to install ORBit. I get ORBit2-2.10.2. At configure time I'm told that I do not indeed have glib >=2.0.0 or gmodule >= 2.0.0 or gobject >= 2.0.0 or libIDL >= 0.7.4. "Crap."

Okay, so in /usr/lib/pkgconfig I have gmodule-2.0.pc glib-2.0.pc gobject-2.0.pc ORBit-2.0-pc, but those are all under the version numbers I need. Glib installed nicely, so I was very surprised not to find something like glib-2.4.2.pc there. It's not anywhere else on my system either, I've checked. However in my glib-2.4.2 directory I do have glib-2.0.pc gmodule-2.0.pc gobject-2.0.pc.

So, what's my question? My primary question is how do I install acidrip? That's too vague though, and silly. What I really want to know is, what's up with all these dependency issues and how can I resolve them? Am I wrong about how to add things to my PKG_CONFIG_PATH (make sure they're sitting in /usr/lib/pkgconfig)?

Sometime I really hate dependencies.

I'm pretty new to linux so I didn't understand most of that but I have installed acidrip about 4 times and it has run perfectly with this guide

http://www.jabentley.com/docs/acidrip-howto.html

The only thing I did differently was unpack using fileroller rather than the command line. It seems to run about 2x as fast now on Slackware 10 although I'm sure a lot of the packages that were upgraded & needed for the install could be to do with this too.

Unfortunately, when I try to configure Gtk-Perl I still am told that it can't exec gnome-config.

Anyone have any ideas what I need to install to get that?

The libgnome package provides gnome-config.h, but if gnome-config is an executable, I can't say as gnome-config seems to not be present in the official slackware packages.

Okay, I tried to install libgnome and got pretty much the same error as in my first post.

Code:
Package gnome-vfs-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gnome-vfs-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gnome-vfs-2.0' found
configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.0.3 gmodule-2.0 >= 2.0.3 gnome-vfs-2.0 >= 1.9.16 libxml-2.0 >= 2.4.22 libbonobo-2.0 >= 2.0.0 gconf-2.0 >= 1.1.11 audiofile >= 0.2.3 esound >= 0.2.26) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

sorry to break it to you, but gtk-perl is not gtk2-perl, they are completely different libraries. http://gtk2-perl.sf.net

And to know the exact packages you need out of gtk2-perl, take a look at my howto for acidrip.. http://www.trickykid.org/docs/acidrip-howto.html

Ah, I see. Well it seems Feynman was correct when he said that one's self is the easiest person to decieve.

I was reading trickykid's tutorial (it was mentioned above trickykid, but thanks anyway) and still fooling myself into thinking that I needed to install gtk-perl.

Thanks for showing me how silly I was being.

By the way, acid_kewpie and trickykid, I've found both of your respective projects to be very useful.

Hmmm... broken again?

And http://www.jabentley.com/docs/acidrip-howto.html is broken too

Is there another acidrip-install howto? Googling hasn't got me anywhere yet...

Hi, I want to install acidrip, too.
I have read all the above posts but still I am not sure how to install Gtk2-perl. And all the above links are broken.

Now I can see that Gtk2-perl consist of many components but do I need them all? Including the Glib, Gnome2 and Gtk2?

I am using slackware 10.2 now so there are not many gnome libraries around. Is the glib-1.2.10-i386-2 in Slack 10.2 the Glib we are talking about above?

Sorry for all these many questions but I really got confused.

Thanks.

I managed to install it, cool app! Have no clue as to which steps I took... should have documented it

Anyway, here's a working link to acidrip Installation Howto:
http://web.archive.org/web/200411110...rip-howto.html

Good luck!

Cheers, Leon.
