GTK+2.5.0 and Pango 1.4.1 linkage problems....


Damn damn...

I had no problems with Pango and GTK+ in SuSE 8.1, but than I thought i should get my self the SuSE 9.1... donīt ask why!

Anyway, it doesn't matter if I so use GTK+2.5.x or 2.4.x still the same problem, this with "Can't link Pango, pango is needed to build!" some thing like that.. Though I know I can't install pango-1.2 because it gives errors... something with FreeType2.

But that's not my problem now!

The problem is that I NEED gtk+2.4 or higher to run some applications. I know the libpang* files exists.. but why can't it link... have searched the internet, but haven't find any answers that could help me

Here comes the error output when Im doing the configure
Code:
checking Pango flags... -I/usr/local/include/pango-1.0 -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/include/freetype2
-I/usr/include/freetype2/config -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include  
-Wl,--export-dynamic -L/usr/local/lib -lpangoxft-1.0 -lpangox-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lgobject-2.0
-lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lglib-2.0
configure: error:
*** Can't link to Pango. Pango is required to build
*** GTK+. For more information see http://www.pango.org
I have seen others have the same problem... but how the hell are Im suppose to solve this, i have:
- GTK+2.5.0 , source. BIG PROBLEMS...
- Glib 2.4.7, source. No problems installing
- Pango 1.4.1 , source. No problems installing
- Atk 1.0.1, source. No problems installing

This is worth reading particularly the stuff about compile flags and PKG_CONFIG_PATH variables. My guess is you installed glib-2.4 in /usr/local (that's the default location) but compiled and linked pango against the glib-2.2 you already had installed in /usr. I would suggest you set these varibles before you compile pango-1.6, atk-1.8 and gtk-2.4. If you close the shell it will forget so reset these before you carry on or you will link against the wrong libraries again.

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L//usr/local/lib"

An alternative is to ./configure --prefix=/usr but the risk is that if you install over the libraries you have there already you will break a lot of things and end up having to reinstall everything. Avoid the gtk-2.5 series - it's the unstable development series.

Mmmkay..

Now I installed glib2 in /usr/local, but then when im on my way to install pango, i can't find glib2.

Why, because pkgconfig search in /usr/lib/pkgconfig after the glib-2.0.pc file, not in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig.

How tha hell can I get this to work.. damn I had no problems with it on the SUSE 8.1, but large problems in 9.1 even if I do it exactly the same way as in 8.1.

garghr ... what to do... It makes me Insane soon ...

So does that mean there's no glib-2.0.pc file in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig? Perhaps you didn't install glib-2.4.7?

The thing is, there was a file in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig, but the config script keept on seraching for the glib-2.0.pc file in /usr/lib, not in /usr/local/lib ..


Anyway, I got a bit tooo insane and now I try out an other dist. Let's see if I get the same problem now

Im not an expert on linux, can anyone tell me how I can solve this thing when I run ldconfig -v, I think thats why I can't install gtk+, because now ./configure works out just fine, but make gives errors on these files that ldconfig cannot stat

Code:
ldconfig: Cannot stat /opt/gnome/lib/libglib-2.0.so: No such file or directory
ldconfig: Cannot stat /opt/gnome/lib/libgsf-gnome-1.so: No such file or directory
ldconfig: Cannot stat /opt/gnome/lib/libgmodule-2.0.so: No such file or directory
ldconfig: Cannot stat /opt/gnome/lib/libgthread-2.0.so: No such file or directory
ldconfig: Cannot stat /opt/gnome/lib/libgobject-2.0.so: No such file or directory

Are those files anywhere on your system? Do a search

find / -name filename

If there are somewhere on your system, then you may have to tell it to search in that path because it cannot find the libraries that it needs

edit your /etc/ld/so.conf file and place the path to those files - I think you said the path is /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

After that type ldconfig to update the cache

Hope that helps

I solved it.. The files existed, but they linked to wrong version number.. so I reinstalled the ones that I needed and now all is okey, except some weird thing with the sound... but that is an other thread!
