This person appears to be running SuperKaramba, a drawing engine which specializes in transluscent applets (called "themes"). More information can be found here:

It looks like the "configure" script doesn't know where to find the X Window System header files. I'm guessing it will probably also stumble trying to find X's libraries too.

I'm guessing that Redhat puts its X under /usr/X11R6, so with that in mind I would re-run configure like this:

env CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/X11R6/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/X11R6/lib ./configure

and see if it still complains.

Have you installed the X development headers and libraries on your machine?

That maybe why the configure script cannot find them.

Quote:

No, the configure script looks in the standard location which you mentioned
and cannot find them there.

It is time to

rpm -ivh XFree86-devel-4.3.0-2.i386.rpm

and any other devel rpms needed.

ok in order to install Xfree86Config I have t ojump thought all of these hoops, ne way I need to install fontconfig 2.2.0 it was tar.gz I untared in ran ./configure but when I ran make it ran smoothly untill the end when it said:
Code:
mv manpage.refs func.refs
rm -f manpage.links
rm -f file.refs
docbook2man fontconfig-user.sgml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.1-1.0-17.cat
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.12/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: /usr/xrpm/fontconfig-2.2.0/doc/fontconfig-user.sgml
Done.
rm -f manpage.refs manpage.links
rm -f fontconfig-user.txt
docbook2txt fontconfig-user.sgml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.1-1.0-17.cat
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.12/docbook-utils.dsl#html
Working on: /usr/xrpm/fontconfig-2.2.0/doc/fontconfig-user.sgml
No way to convert HTML to text found.
make[2]: *** [fontconfig-user.txt] Error 8
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/xrpm/fontconfig-2.2.0/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/xrpm/fontconfig-2.2.0'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
Some how I have to install this how can I?

Just curious. What operating were you using when you saw that initial screenshot with SuperKaramba? Were you using a Linux browser at the time, such as Mozilla, Konqueror or perhaps Nautilus? Or did you see this while you were under Windows?
