Trying to install dvd::rip but :Can't exec "gnome-config"


I am really frustrated trying to install dvd rip...

First I tried installing it but it said that I need the following:


bash-2.05b$ perl Makefile.PL
Warning: prerequisite Gtk 0.7008 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Gtk::Gdk::Pixbuf 0 not found.
Writing Makefile for Video:VDRip
bash-2.05b$

So I downloaded and tried installing GtK 0.7009:


bash-2.05b$ perl Makefile.PL
Can't exec "gnome-config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 141.
Can't exec "gnome-config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 141.
Can't exec "gnome-config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 141.
Submodule gnome is needed to build gnomeprint but it appears
it's misdetected or not selected for compilation.
Available modules: gtk gtkhtml gtkglarea gdkimlib gdkpixbuf gtkxmhtml gnome gnomeprint glade applets.

You can disable the inclusion of a module using --without-pkgname.
If a package is misdetected and you still want it to compile
use --with-pkgname-force.
To disable autodetection of modules use --without-guessing.
bash-2.05b$
Any ideas what I need to do??

Thanks
Adam

gnome-config is a developers package and is probably included in gnome-libs-devel (in suse it is).

Install it and the problem is gone.

I'm not familiar with Slackware. Could be that it is already installed but not found, could be that a 'full' install doesn't include (all) developers packages, etc.

Try to find out if it's on your box first:

$ locate gnome-config

or, if locate isn't installed:

$ find / -name 'gnome-config' -print

Did you try the gnome site

GConf if I'm not mistaken.

I must agree that it was harder to find then I first thought. All because of the name confusion. I do believe that the GConf package is the correct one.

Before you actually install this file you should check to see if gnome-conf is present. Just in case you don't know how, here it is:

$ bunzip2 GConf-2.4.0.1.tar.bz2
$ tar tf GConf-2.4.0.1.tar | grep 'gnome-conf' | grep 'bin'

I had same issue with Slackware 9.1 when installing GtkPerl-0.7008 and I got it to install by using the --without-guessing option as you can clearly see this in your error:

Submodule gnome is needed to build gnomeprint but it appears
it's misdetected or not selected for compilation.
Available modules: gtk gtkhtml gtkglarea gdkimlib gdkpixbuf gtkxmhtml gnome gnomeprint glade applets.


That you have all the modules loaded already.

But I was installing this for acidrip which use to require it but now works off of Gtk2-Perl.

Hey trickykid ... I am really new to all this, linux and even more stuff like this... I donīt really fully undestand what everything is for... anyway if I install GtkPerl-0.7008 with --without-guessing it should work??

I was wondering if it might be simpler for me to download Mplayer and then use acidrip... the thing that put me off doing that in the first place is that I was trying to choose the simplist option....

What do you think?

I tried installing Gtk-perl with that -without-guessing option but look what happened

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `build/perl-gtk-ref.pod', needed by `manifypods'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/adam/Gtk-Perl-0.7009/Gtk'
make: *** [subdirs] Error 2

bash-2.05b$ make

bash-2.05b$ acidrip
Can't locate Gtk2.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/AcidRip/interface.pm line 1.

If you'll check the INSTALL GTK-perl will only work with GTK+ 1.2x.( I used 1.28.)

HEH HEH!!
I'm hung up on this part of " make".

site_perl/5.8.2 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at ../tools/gendoc.pl line 4.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ../tools/gendoc.pl line 4.
Can't locate XML/Parser.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.2/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.2 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at ../tools/gpdoc2pod line 22.


Any ideas?
