Error installing ksmoothdock 3.5.1


Trying to install ksmoothdock. This happended. I have used this program with kde 3.2 but I did a fresh install a of slackware 10 and ran swaret to get updated with the newest kde. I then decided install ksmoothdock because I don't like the current taskbar. When I tried to install it this happened.

Code:
root@Mike:~/ksmoothdock-3.5.1# ./configure
root@Mike:~/ksmoothdock-3.5.1# make install
Making install in ksmoothdock
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/ksmoothdock-3.5.1/ksmoothdock'
/bin/sh ../libtool --silent --mode=link --tag=CXX g++  -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -Wall -pedantic -W -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -ansi -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -D_BSD_SOURCE -Wcast-align -Wconversion -O2 -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new    -o ksmoothdock -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/lib/qt/lib -L/opt/kde/lib  -R /opt/kde/lib -R /usr/lib/qt/lib -R /usr/X11R6/lib welcomedialog.o tooltip.o showdesktop.o item.o confmenudialog.o confkickerdialog.o confdialog.o aboutdialog.o ksmoothdock.o main.o confkickerdialog.moc.o tooltip.moc.o welcomedialog.moc.o confdialog.moc.o ksmoothdock.moc.o aboutdialog.moc.o  -lkio -lkdeui -lkdecore -lqt-mt  -lpng -lz -lm-lXext -lX11  -lSM -lICE -lpthread

make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/ksmoothdock-3.5.1/ksmoothdock'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Any help is greatly appreciated.

do this:

$updatedb (warning:may takesome time-creates a DB of all files on ure system)
$slocate libfontconfig.la

slocate should find this file in /usr/lib/

so if it is in /usr/lib then, u have to link that file to the /usr/X11R6/lib/ location(which is where ksmoothdock is searching)


modify the followinf command , depending on where libfontconfig is (usually /usr/lib)
$ln -s /usr/lib/libfontconfig.la /usr/X11R6/lib/libfontconfig.la


if there is no libfontconfig on your entire machine, then u have to reinstall the X font packages (not sure which one)
oh and try kxdocker if u dont like ksmoothdock...its easier to configure..
