ubernewb: Trying to install xcdroast


Ok, serious newb here, so please don't assume I know how to do anything. This is literally day 1 of learning Linux after installation.

I'm using Slackware.

I'm operating from a terminal window inside of KDE, so let me know if that changes anything.

Here are the commands I've gone through to try to install XCDRoast:

$ tar xvf xcdroast.tar.gz
$ cd xcdroast-.0.98alpha16

From here it shows the file successfully decompressed into the directory.

$ ./configure

*** The gdk-pixbuf-config script installed by GDK_PIXBUF could not be found
*** If GDK_PIXBUF was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GDK_PIXBUF_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gdk-pixbuf-config.
configure: error: Test for gdk_pixbuf failed. See the file 'INSTALL' for help.

I opened the file using nano INSTALL and looked for any reference to gdk_pixbuf but found none.

I have no idea what to do from here, and the only other people I could find that seemed to have the same problem were well above what I know how to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why don't you use your package manager to install it? What version of Slackware do you use?

I have a package manager?

What's it called and how do I get to it?

Also, whatever version was available for download yesterday... I'm not sure how to find it.

Sorry, like I said, serious newb.

Ok, I see on www.slackware.com that the latest release is 13.37 so I assume this is your version. Up untill version 12.2 (the latest I have used) I used to download packages form here and install them from terminal.
Code:
 # installpkg <packagename>.txz
I see in the Release Announcement that you can use slackpkg too, but I don't know how this works. Take a look at the man pages of both programs.
You should also take a look at Slackbook
There is a package management section.

Edit: You know that you can use k3b instead of xcdroast wich comes with KDE (in your other thread you mention using KDE, right?).

k3b? Wow, that's the Windows equivalent of not knowing what Windows Media Player is. Yep, definitely a newb. I haven't felt this lost on a computer since I was 9.

Ah well, gotta learn somehow.

Appreciate the help.
