Problems installing nPth library... trying to configure GnuPG


Hi Guys,

While configuring GnuPG I keep getting the error message that I need to install the nPth library. I have done the following:

1- tried sudo apt-get install npth
2- downloaded the .tar file and compile, make and install
3- Used Synaptic package manager to install npth libraries

AND still no joy.

Synaptic is showing npth as being installed as the latest version...

Any ideas?

Usually you add -dev to the end this installs the development files needed for compiling, in this case looks like the package needed is libnpth0-dev.

Code:
~$ apt-cache search npth
libnpth0 - replacement for GNU Pth using system threads
libnpth0-dbg - debugging symbols for libnpth0
libnpth0-dev - headers for libnpth0

And that tells me nothing without seeing the package you refer to in output similar to the below I cannot tell if you refer to the libraries required to run a program depending upon them or the development files needed for compiling being installed.

Code:
~$ apt-cache policy libnpth0
libnpth0:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.0-1
  Version table:
     1.3-1~bpo8+1 0
        100 http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports/main amd64 Packages
     1.0-1 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main amd64 Packages
~$ apt-cache policy libnpth0-dev
libnpth0-dev:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.0-1
  Version table:
     1.3-1~bpo8+1 0
        100 http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports/main amd64 Packages
     1.0-1 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main amd64 Packages
