check if you have a file called gtk+-2.0.pc on /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig.. also, when installing gtk-2 from source, did you specify any option when running the configure script (--prefix option for instance).
if you installed a new pkg-config before installing glib, it is better to remove the old one (rpm -e pkgconfig).

Unhappy

I guess I have everything a bit messed up!...the only gtk+-2.0.pc that I could find is /usr/local/gtk+-2.0.pc.in

When installing the new gtk from source I did not specify any --prefix option, should i point it to /usr/local/something?, somewhere I read to point it to /opt/gtk....

I installed a new pkconfig, but I cant uninstall the old one because XFee86-devel-4.3.0-2 needs it......should I force it or I might need the X develop later on?

Sorry I cant get this working, I am still very unexperienced in RH9, but I have learned loads the past days....
Any help will be much appreciated...

Manuel

Very strange.
I recommend you to uninstall GTK and reinstall it. To uninstall it , cd to the directory that contain sources, then type make uninstall and make clean.. then run the configure script without any options, make and make install... and see if gtk+-2.0.pc exists on /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

Hope that Helps,
Al Hussein

here's a me too post ...

i got the same error when trying to install pango. afaik, glib-2.2.2 installed correctly because pkg-config (0.15) see is when i do a "pkg-config --list-all".

how do i uninstall glib-2.2.1?? where is it? how do i check where the relevant files r (2.2.2 vs 2.2.1)? i wish there was a "glib -version" or a "which glib" type command rt?

Hi saimike,

Did you install from source, RPM, or both?

There are multiple problems being discussed so it would probably be a good idea to post the exact error message to avoid confusion.

Unhappy PLEASE HELP!

I ve been stuck here for a while....Ive tried uninstalling the GLIB and GTK rpm that came with the distro )forcing it of course because of the dependencies), set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH a thousand times(with an ldconfig afterwards eaxh time), I even tried upgrading gtk from the rh portal, removing old pkgconfigs, editing ld.so.conf. So far, I still think there is a mistake because pkg-config and pkgconfig do not recognize that GTK has been upgraded....

Is there an rpm for GTK so I can just upgrade it?.....or is there another way of going away with this one because it seems a common problem in this forum but somehow its been tough so far...

Is there a specific directory to install gtk?, ive always tried on /usr/local.....

thanx
manuel

I found the following in the gtk.org porat....Is it any good?

"If you were installing GTK+ and it's dependencies into /opt/gtk, you might want to set these variables as:"

CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/gtk/include"
LDFLAGS="-L/opt/gtk/lib"
PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/opt/gtk/lib/pkgconfig"
export CPPFLAGS LDFLAGS PKG_CONFIG_PATH

SO, should i change /opt/gtk/lib for /usr/local/lib?

When you install GTK in /opt or in /usr/local, it doesn't make any difference.
After deleting and reinstalling GTK,does a file called gtk+-2.0.pc exists on your /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ?
Also, try setting the enviroment variables you posted but with a different prefix:
Code:
export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include"
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

OK after one month!!!!!!!!!
I realized I can never find my way with source code!...So I got all the rpms for glib, gliv devel, gtk2, gtk2 devel and using rpm -Uvh for upgrading existing libraries:

rpm -Uvh glib-devel-1.2.10-11.i386.rpm glib-1.2.10-11.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh gtk2-2.2.3-1.1.i386.rpm gtk2-devel-2.2.3-1.1.i386.rpm

So now I got the latest gtk and glib and other apps can now work!!!!
