Problems with compile - GTK


I am trying to compile the latest Lexmark Z43 drivers and I get this output:

and from config.log:

configure:4108: checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0
configure:4254: result: no
configure:4288: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c >&5
configure:4280:21: gtk/gtk.h: No such file or directory

configure:4291: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| #line 4268 "configure"
| /* confdefs.h. */

I have read what posts I can find on here, and the general idea is that gtk-devel package is not installed, yet I cannot find any such package on my Mandrake distro. I googled and all I came up with are gtk-devel-1.x.x packages. I show I have gtk-2.x.x installed. Does anyone know where rpms for the latest gtk-devel package are? Or is this even my problem? Any insight would be appreciated.

1- ./configure ; make
not ./configure make

2/ use ./configure -- help for options, there is usually one to specify the path for anything, use 'locate' to find the path

3/ if you have the gtk 1.x development package, there will be a readme at the top of the source tree, which will tell you where to get the latest gtk 2.x

4/ i had this problem compiling gimp or something, its really a matter of reading the docs

5/ cant you find the RPM package, I believe that is the way things are done these days

I believe you may be looking in the wrong packages. "gtk-config" ocmes with the gtk+ package (e.g. gtk+-1.2.10-25.i386.rpm) and the gtk2 libraries are in gtk2* package (e.g. gtk2-2.2.1-4.i386.rpm, gtk2-devel-2.2.1-4.i386.rpm). I'm not sure if this helps.

I fixed the problem. I chucked that piece'o'crap Lexmark WinPrinter, and shelled out less than $100 at Wal-Mart for a Epson Sylus Photo 825, and let me tell you this is one awesome printer:

-Configured via USB instanly with no problems.
-Works in Linux perfectly.
-Works in Win4Lin perfectly.
-Has a smartcard reader so I can use my Olympus C-211 Camera in Linux now.
-Works via a PCMCIA slot IN THE PRINTER!! Comes with 2 card adapters. One for Compact Flash, the other for everything else.
-Mandrake Distro has built in Epson tool to show ink levels and align heads.

I have to give props to Epson for not being closed minded to other OS's. They will have my business from now on.
