install G-Rip on Slackware w/Dropline Gnome


I'm trying to install Grip but I get this error

checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install


from some searching I found that I need the gnome-libs-devel, I guess?? I'm running Dropline gnome is this not installed by default??

You will need the packages that were included in Slackware 8.0 or 8.1 as Slackware 9 uses gnome 2.4 and doesn't install this package no longer as 8.0 uses older gnome packages.

Install this package found here: http://sunsite.ulatina.ac.cr/Unix/Li...me/gnome-libs/

I installed this to get grip working with no problems. Some once had the notion to tell members they needed to install all of Gnome's packages from 8.x but that is untrue...

Hope this clarifies for ya..

Cheers.

Heres a better package with the actual tgz extension: http://ftp.algx.net/pub/linux/slackw...1.7-i386-1.tgz

Just download and do this as root:

installpkg gnome-libs-1.4.1.7-i386-1.tgz

Cheers.

I just ran 'locate libhttp' and I get this

/usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libhttp.a
/usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libhttp.la
/usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libhttp.so

Ah yeah.. that one is kind of hard and is required. Check the grip main site which he has it for download from there or here: http://www.nostatic.org/grip/libghttp-1.0.9.tar.gz

Oh and to answer your original question which I'm sure you already know, no, grip is not included in Dropline probably due to these dependencies, which really isn't all that hard to install, etc.

Cheers.

Hmm.. might not be in your path. Try creating links from /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib or just install the one for download as it could be a different version, etc.

I thought gnomeConf.sh was for GTK 1.x? I have Grip (3.1.4) which uses GTK 2 and no gnomeConf.sh was needed.
