x window directory location

Hello all

I run Mandrake 10.1 and I'm currently installing a kde-app called kchm. It however in configuring the source asks me to specify the "x include directory" & the "x library directory". Does anyone know where this might be?

I'm pretty sure I have it installed how else could I be using KDE and Gnome without any problems.... right? I think the path could be omething similar to /usr/X11R6/bin.

don't know about mandrake but generally
sould be a symbolic link named X11 in
/usr/include  $ ls -l X11
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 20 2004-12-25 00:09 X11 -> ../X11R6/include/X11
this would make the include PATH /usr/X11R6/include i think and similar below

and in /usr/lib
 /usr/lib  $ ls -l X11
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 16 2004-12-25 00:08 X11 -> ../X11R6/lib/X11
and an entry in PKG_CONFIG_PATH /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig
