Gdesklets ./configure problem


I currently am running Slack 10 2.4.26 Fluxbox 0.9.10 and am trying to install gDesklets 0.31.1. when trying to ./configure I am getting this error.


-------
checking for glib-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-2.0 gtk+-2.0 pygtk-2.0 >= 2.0.0... Package pygtk-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pygtk-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'pygtk-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-2.0 gtk+-2.0 pygtk-2.0 >= 2.0.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
-------


I know that I have pytgtk-2.0 installed so do not know what to do to slover this problem. Does anyone know what I can do to solve this error? Thanks in advance.

OK I have found it but do not know how to make ./configure look in the right place.

Code:
find / -iname "pygtk-2.0.pc"
and then add that directory to your PKG_CONFIG_PATH by doing:
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/result/from/find/command/above
You can either add that line to your .bashrc file and reload bash (open a new window or just type bash) or your /etc/profile file so it affects all users. Or just run ./configure straight after using the export command.
