Compiling GTK+ 2.0.9


hello,
i am trying to get GTK+ to compile and install and i am having some problems. i have compiled and installed glib and tiff libraries. i dont know if i have correctly compiled the jpeg libraries (i get cjpeg and djpeg in usr/local/bin). the same goes for Pango 1.0.4

this is what i ran:
Code:
env PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/home/dexter/Documents/pango-1.0.4:/usr/local/bin LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/bin ./configure --without-libpng
(i care not for PNG)

Code:
configure: WARNING: *** JPEG loader will not be built (JPEG library not found) ***
configure: error:
*** Checks for JPEG loader failed. You can build without it by passing
*** --without-libjpeg to configure but some programs using GTK+ may
*** not work properly
thanks for any help with this!

if the jpeg library is not found, you better go, download anc install it. i downt know how and where you installed your jpeg libs, but best thing is to put the jpeg lib into /usr/lib.

make sure, that after install of the jpeglib you run ldconfig.

besides: you shouldnt use env ... to define paths for configure. use CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS instead. (CPPFLAGS are preprocessor flags : if you need to set some special paths this is where you do it, CFLAGS are flags for the C compiler, CXXFLAGS the flags for the c++ compiler)

so your commad sould look like:

CPPFLAGS="-I/path/to/special/includes -L/path/to/special/libs ..." and so on.

hope this helped

Actually I found an easier solution while trying compiling gtk+2.2.1. When you compile jpeg-6b be sure to do a make install-lib. I hope this helps out anybody else who stumbles upon this forum.
