problem with GTK during installation of wxGTK

Hi to all

I'm trying to install wxGTK (they're required by aMule). This package need GTK. I hed some problem initially so I decided to install the latest version of GTK (2.6.4) without unistalling the previous.

when i run ./configure I have this error:

checking for GTK+ version...
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0' returned 2.6.1, but GTK+ (2.6.4)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GTK+. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
Now each program that need GTK says me that is unable to find them or something similar.
and I cannot run gtk-config because i can't find it.

What should I do????

you probably installed a new gtk but left your older one on your filesystem. you will have to either remove the older one or manually alter the relevant environmental paths ( both at compile time and run time).

also, gtk-config is for the 1.x series of gtk, gtk-2.x does not use it.
