xmms-infopipe can't find xmms..
 
Hi, i have xmms installed (using the installer, an rpm in suse i believe) and when i want to install the tar ball xmms-infopipe it gives me this error during ./configure

checking for xmms-config... no
checking for XMMS - version >= 1.0.0... no
*** The xmms-config script installed by XMMS could not be found.
*** If XMMS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XMMS_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xmms-config.


what can i do?

Thanks

# whereis xmms-config <<< will echo the path of it's location

# echo $PATH <<< will echo all paths stored here

If xmms-config's path is not in $PATH, then add that location to your $PATH variable.

how do i add it to the PATH variable?

this is what i get

user379:/home/mark # whereis xmms-config
xmms-config:
user379:/home/mark # echo $PATH
/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin

do this ---> #locate xmms-config

eg. output--->/xxx/yyy/xmms-config


put the following in ur .bash_profile or .bashrc

XMMS_CONFIG="$XMMS_CONFIG:/xxx/yyy:."
export XMMS_CONFIG

save it..

open a new terminal

echo $XMMS_CONFIG

it should reflect the XMMS_CONFIG path........

mark@user379:~> locate xmms-config
mark@user379:~>


:(

shows nothing

i even got rid of the xmms rpm and installed the new xmms source from the website
and it still cannot find it

minm 10-18-2004 06:55 PM

nevermind, i did 'updatedb' and i found it :)

so in .bashrc

i would put

XMMS_CONFIG="$XMMS_CONFIG:/usr/local/bin/xmms-config:."
export XMMS_CONFIG

???

UsualTuxpect 10-18-2004 10:04 PM

yes. put it in .bashrc

XMMS_CONFIG="$XMMS_CONFIG:/usr/local/bin/xmms-config:."
export XMMS_CONFIG

save it..

open a new terminal

echo $XMMS_CONFIG

it should reflect the XMMS_CONFIG path........
