xfce 4.2.2


Hi every one, i've downloaded the source for xfce 4.2.2 and tried to install it.
Installed libxfce4util-4.2.2 and when trying ti install libxfce4mcs-4.2.2 it showed that xfce util is not correct version and to update it and if its is alwready installed to change PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the new version.

How do i do this (change the pkg config path)??

thanks

before you run ./configure, type :

$export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

( those are the normal dir.'s for pkgconfig files )

hi egag, i've tried what you said and did nothing

-bash: $export PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/user/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig: No such file or directory

the full message while installing libxfce4mcs-4.2.2:
the required package libxfce4mcs-1.0 >= 4.2.0 aws found on your system, but the installed version () is to old. Pleasen upgrade llibxfceutil-1.0 to at least version 4.2.0, or adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PAHT envoirement variable if you installed the new version of the package in a nonstandard perfix so pkg-config is able to find it.

Any thoughts on this??

Thanks again.

you forgot the equal sign, and its usr not user
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig: No such file or

he he, my mistake, typing error. Still the same problem:
No such file or directory

$export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

i'm completely lost, i'm a newbie to slackware
my first time trying to install an update for xfce, unfortunly no success upgrading it.
xfce = simplicity + speed.
Any new ideas? egag xushi

-----------
No such file or directory
-----------

how do you do that ?
if i paste that line ( without the '$' ) i get no warning and it's set.

what does " echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH " give ?

Did you look at how the official xfce package is built
from this mirror directory ?
http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/slackw...urce/xap/xfce/

man...what a big package

i know what the problem was i've been typing it with the '$' (me idiot). Now it doesn't show 'No such file or directory ', actually it didn't gave any feedback, so i guess its ok.
i'll keep on trying tomorrow, bit late...

keefaz: yeps, big package. Just ./configure make make install on them (i think its done like this). If i want to learn how it works i've gotta use ti else i will be for a very long, long... long time

thanks egag, xushi, keefaz for your time
