Minbar-0.1


Hi,

I was trying to install a package called Minbar-0.1 on my machine, I had some trouble installing it, though. Here is the output of the ./configure command:

No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gtk+-2.0', required by 'Libglade', not found

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

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

[noha@localhost minbar-0.1]$
Now I am sure I have these packages installed, I have even installed both the 32 bit and the 64 bit versions. I want to know which file do I need to edit to change the PKG_CONFIG_PATH?

Here is the output of the ls command:
Code:
[noha@localhost minbar-0.1]$ ls
aclocal.m4  compile       configure     depcomp     intltool-extract.in  ltmain.sh     minbar.desktop  pixmaps  TODO
AUTHORS     config.guess  configure.ac  doc         intltool-merge.in    Makefile.am   missing         po
autogen.sh  config.log    COPYING       INSTALL     intltool-update.in   Makefile.in   mkinstalldirs   README
ChangeLog   config.sub    data          install-sh  libtool
[noha@localhost minbar-0.1]$
Now I need to say I use an AMD 64 Athlon machine and I run Fedora 7.

Thanks in advance,

Noha

The gtk2-devel packages? Are you sure? not only gtk2 libraries are needed, also headers and maybe static libs. You need the development part of gtk2

To override PKG_CONFIG_PATH I do it like this:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/blabla/here ./configure

but this is only needed if you installed these libraries to something else that /usr/lib ( ./configure --prefix=..)
In your case, install the gtk2 devel from your distro, they will go in /usr/lib and no need for changing PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I do have the development packages installed and I am sure they are there. I can see them in the yumex list of installed packages.
But there are 2 directories on my AMD 64 Athlon, on is /usr/lib/ and the other is /usr/lib64/, now which one should have what?

Thank you again,

Noha

PS.

Here is the package link.

it is now looking for a .pc file in PKG_CONFIG_PATH. try an slocate *.pc

it then uses the gtkxxx.pc file to know where are the headers and where are the libs, so you shoulnt have to care about that if the configure file is correct and the .pc is correct (the later i assume it is).
last resort, you can always open the configure file and look for the part about gtk, maybe there's an error.
