GTK+ 1.4 on Debian Etch


Hello folks, I am trying to install this package in order to install Firefox 3. While Iceweasel has been great, I cannot log on to my facebook account with it.

I need help solve some dependency problems installing GTK+. Here is what i have done so far:

I extracted

tar xvfj gtk+-2.0.0.tar.bz2

into the /opt directory
then when tried to compile

./configure --prefix=/opt/gtk

**************************************************************************

use [code] tags next time.

You're missing a C compiler. Install build-essential via Synaptic/aptitude/apt-get to get one and a number of other tools necessary for compiling code.

That is not the best way to install Firefox 3 on Debian Etch,...

Please consult Your Duplicate Thread in the Debian section of the forum where AlucardZero already provided you with a link to a much simpler method that what you are doing..

I mean come on.. Compiling your own instead of just installing it from Debian-Backports ?


AlucardZero how did you miss this as a dupe ? heh

I still have not managed to upgrade my GTK yet. I tried installing using back ports as described in AlucardZero instructions. What I got was GTK folder and /usr sub folder within. No binary scripts at all to run. I went back to building a stand alone package and when I try to run the configuration script am getting..

o I download the GTK 2.14 from gnome's website. This is what I get when i run the ./configure script:

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS
and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Do you intentionally NOT read what's been posted to solve your issues ?

install the GTK package from Debian backports and be done in 5 minutes or keep wasting your time trying to manually compile it, The choice is yours.

Hey farslayer, i think you must have "intentionally" missed a few lines in my previous post. Which indicated I had tried that option. But ran into problems.

libgtk2.0-0_2.10.13-2~bpo.1_i386.deb

Then I ran dpkg which got me gtk2-10

This folder only has one sub folder called /usr
If that is as should be,
Then I am assuming ( the instructions are not explicit ) I copy the firefox folder to /opt and copy the contents of gtk2-10 to firefox. My firefox download is not called firefox3 even though it is that very version.

Here is some output which might help you help me; I looks like i need a file called pkg-config

Sorry your posts are long, and you don't use code tags to clean them up, so it's hard to follow what you are and aren't doing..

you need several other packages to cover the dependencies. the versions being asked for are all met with standard etch packages.

aptitude update

Not sure if it's just asking for those as dependencies or if it wants the -dev packages for those.
if the error is still the same after making sure the package dependencies are met, then install the development packages for those libraries.

aptitude install libglib2.0-dev libatk1.0-dev libpango1.0-dev libcairo2-dev

I have forgotten, was there some specific reason you didn't want to upgrade to a current version of Debian ?

Actually, I am about to upgrade to Debian 5. I am in the process of studying for the LPI exams and don't mind playing around building third party packages and everything else in between.

So you recon the Debian 5 would have GTK2.10???

I did these and it seemed to update fine but I am still not able to compile.

aptitude update
aptitude install libglib2.0-0 libatk1.0-0 libpango1.0-0 libcairo2
aptitude install libglib2.0-dev libatk1.0-dev libpango1.0-dev libcairo2-dev


That was only the last bit of the compile output. Did't want to give you the full output seeing that it was confusing you.

so now it's asking for libtiff, install it and try again..

Code:
default@debianlenny:~$ aptitude search libtiff
v   libtiff-dev                                                     -                                                                          
p   libtiff-doc                                                     - TIFF manipulation and conversion documentation

Yeah that -search switch gives me the same listing as you have there.

So which one should I try to install?


I have already tried

aptitude install libtiff-dev and got: am i on the right track?
