No configure file in installation folder


I'm trying to install Spicebird. I extracted the tar.bz2 and cd to the folder, but now as far as I know I should run ./configure Right?

The problem is that there is no configure file. What do I do now?

Thanks.

It just directs me to a site that only explains how to extract Sunbird and not Spicebird

It's already compiled. You're not downloading the source. You have to cd to the spicebird directory and then run spicebird:

Code:
cd spicebird
./spicebird

When I do that (and there is a spicebird file) it tells me ./spicebird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libpangocairo-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is a dependancy error. Spicebird is looking for a library file that it needs to run and it can't find. You must install all of the dependencies for spicebird before it will run. Installing those libraries will depend on your distribution.

Edit: using Ubuntu go to the Synaptic package manager and search for the Library you need.

Ok thanks. I'm not finding the libpangocairo library and my Ubuntu machine is not online yet. Is there a good website you know about to download libraries from?

libpangocairo should be located in /usr/lib. Can you check if its there. If not then I would say you are missing the libpango library. You can download pango 1.0 from here:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/d...i386&type=main

The package is for Dapper, but hopefully it will work with Hoary which doesn't seem to be support any more. Try that out and let me know.
