Does anyone know of a slackware Gail package?


I need to install gail, but can't find a package. Any help?

It doesn't seem to be on Slackbuilds.

You should be able to compile from sources. This site discusses dependencies.

Actually, it is on SlackBuilds, but you have to search under Slackware 12.2 instead of 13.1.

AFAIK gail was migrated into mainstream GTK+, so unless you are still on Slackware 12.2 like me, you should have it (or the equivalent libraries).

EternalNewbie is correct. Gail is now part of Gtk+2 - don't install a standalone gail version.
