Unhappy Stardict dependencies: unsolvable problem?


Hello, i would like to ask help for a problem with Stardict.
I have Suse 9.2 with KDE and Windows XP on the same HD. I need a good offline translator and i have Babylon on Windows but Wine cannot run it in Linux.
So i tried Stardict: stardict.sourceforge.net/

I tried the two RPMs available there and both give me dependency problems:
libstdc++.so. But with Yast i see that i do have all the available libstdc++ already. My system is updated so it cannot be a version problem.

Then i tried the .tar.bz2 version. I followed all the instructions; when i do "make" it returns the error:
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/opt/gnome/lib/libgnome-keyring.la'
Again, checking with Yast i see that i do have libgnome-keyring installed, even if no files with that name exist in that directory.
I uninstalled and reinstalled libgnome-keyring (through Yast and Suse RPM) but again same issue.

Honestly i can't really find a way around.. and that's too bad, as i'd really need that software. I have never happened such an odd dependency problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much in advance

Are you saying that although YaST says this library is installed, there are no files in /opt/gnome/lib/ (libgnome-keyring.la is a library file not a directory see...)

In the top makefule -
Try to enhance LIBS with '-L/opt/gnome/lib' or '-L/opt/gnome/lib64' (depending on
wether you use 32bit or 64bits, e.g. by calling
LIBS="$LIBS -L/opt/gnome/lib" ./autogen.sh ...

Thanks. I finally solved and found another libstdc++ and with that also the RPM worked.
As i have KDE i tried installing stardict-without-gnome.rpm, that i found at the official stardict site.
It gave no dependency errors and now i have it in the menu bar, but when i try to launch the application after some time it disappears and doesn't start at all...
Why?

Any idea? Thanks.

Try starting the application from the command line.
(You can find out what to type by right-clicking the icon and selecting "properties" - the entry in the box called "command" is what you want.)

You can usually find out more by typing man <command> or info <command> in the command line too.

Yes, you were right ! Thanks much.
I was returned a library not found even if when i installed all the dependencies were ok: i had an older version of that library.
Thanks again
