Error: X11 support requires Xcursor library when i already install Xcursor!


I have problem with building Allegro 5 on Debian Jessie. I solve already some dependences problem and now I'm getting error:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:570 (message):
  X11 support requires Xcursor library.
I have already installed libxcursor1 package but I'm still getting this error.
My CMake generator is "Unix Makefiles".

Thanks, Siery.

You need to install the relevent -dev packages as debian's apt splits packages into the lib/application files, the development files and the documentation files.

I did. I'm sorry i didn't mention that. I install all packages i find:

libxcursor-dev - X cursor management library (development files)
libxcursor1 - X cursor management library
libxcursor1-dbg - X cursor management library (unstripped)
libxcb-cursor-dev - utility libraries for X C Binding -- cursor, development files

I fix the problem by deleting CMakeCache.txt. It has been improperly cached.
