configuration error: Can't find Tcl configuration definition


This is my first post.

I am trying to install netgen-4.9.14 on a Mint 13 x64 machine. When running the ./configuration script, the following error is generated

checking for Tcl configuration... configure: error: Can't find Tcl configuration definitions

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

found this on google, so you might try it

Quote:
./configure --with-tclconfig=/usr/local/ActiveTcl-8.4/lib/ --with-tkconfig=/usr/local/ActiveTcl-8.4/lib/
try some variance of this depending on what version you got

Welcome to LQ.

sudo apt-get install tcl-dev tk-dev mesa-common-dev libjpeg-dev libtogl-dev

( libjpeg-dev is required, when you use : ./configure --enable-jpeglib
... Please see './configure --help' :
--enable-jpeglib → → enable snapshots using library libjpeg ).
