Hello! I'm trying to compile cairo with xcb support (because I have no life). I've noticed, though, that on all my compiles (not just cairo), I keep getting an error about missing libraries, but I have the libraries in question installed. I've tried reinstalling them with aptitude and directing whatever path is used by the compilation to where my library folders are, but the only thing that seems to work is when I compile all of the dependencies themselves from source, too. I don't really mind doing that too much, so that's what I did. But in order to finish compiling XCB, I need to compile Xinput, which is going to make me compile all of X11, which I kinda don't want to have to do because X11 likes to break when one messes with it. Or, at least it did when I ran Fedora. I generally try not to touch my X11 installation.
I have all of these requirements installed though (*-dev, of course), so it's fairly frustrating. I gave this several days of trial, but I realized that I do need to ask for help with this, so, hiya.
^^ So, yes, I do have packageconfig set to the right directory.
I'm running Kubuntu 12.10. Why do I need cairo to use XCB if I don't use gnome? Most of my apps are GTK (well, gtk2). Also, I really like XCB. :P
So! How can I get Package Config or whatever to know where the *-dev libraries are installed?
