libz can't be found
I'm trying to install kooldock on an Ubuntu 5.0.4 machine. The problem is that it can't find libz (or zlib). I know it's installed though.

Thanks for any help!

Are you trying to compile kooldock? If so, you'll need the -dev packages for zlib and everything else it needs too.

I have all that.

Bump :D

Apparently you're missing something. My first guess is all of the KDE crap, IIRC Ubuntu doesn't ship with KDE by default.

I've installed all the KDE stuff, infact I was posting the thread under KDE.

Is there away to point configure to my libz file?

How about you post the output of the configure script as well as dpkg -l 'zlib*'

Well the Debian package for zlib1g-dev puts the include in /usr/include, if the configure script can't find it there then it's extremely broken. Post the output of the configure script as well.

The entire thing? :eek:

Edit: Actually it seems to get past libz just fine now.

Edit2: I just have some uninstalled stuff but other then that I think I'm fine. Thanks for your help!
