Question Trouble Installing GTK


I'm attempting to install GTK 2.4.0, but I get the following error when I run ./configure for it.

checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.4.0... Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0' but version of GLib is 2.2.3

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.4.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

I downloaded and installed GLib 2.4.6, so what do I need to do now? What is the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable that it mentions?

Have you tried going into the Mandrake Control Center and just installing it from there?
Or, install by using URPMI? it's guaranteed to work.

Download and install atk and pango.

PKG_CONFIG_PATH is like a path variable for pkgconfig (*.pc) files, e.g.

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig" etc etc

I don't see why I'd need to do this. The versions I have are current enough to work. How do I get GTK to see the newer version of GLib that I've installed?

Have you got the development packages installed?

You should have the following on your system somewhere, probably /usr/lib/pkgconfig or /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:

atk.pc
pango*.pc
gdk*2.0.pc

Make sure the directory/directories where those files are is/are in your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable.

How do I edit or even find the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable?

To see it, you can either (the dollar at the begining $ is the prompt i.e. do not type the $. When # is used it means that you must be root).

Code:
$ set
Which will give you a list of all the variables.

Or

Code:
$ echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
Which will display just the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable.

To set it use:
Code:
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="..."
where ... = the path you want. Each entry in the path is seperated by a : (colon).

e.g.
Code:
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig"
I would suggest that you find all the pkgconfig directories and put them in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH. You can find them with:
Code:
# find / -type d -name "pkgconfig"
But they are probably some or all of and maybe some more:

/usr/lib/pkgconfig
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig
/opt/pkgconfig

I would also suggest you put this in /etc/profile so the PKG_CONFIG_PATH is set in every shell. Just edit /etc/profile with a text editor (vi, vim, nano etc) and add the line:
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="..."
(where ... = the path you want).

Dear All,

I'm having quite the same problem. PKG_CONFIG_PATH is defined, I installed glib-2.4.6 moments before, and indeed glib-2.0.pc is in both /usr/lib/pkgconfig and /usr/local/lib/config. However, the one in /usr... cats "Version: 2.2.3" while the one in /usr/local... cats "Version: 2.4.6".

Three things I thought of that I could try:

./configure --prefix=/usr # Do this, then make and make install, to glib-2.4.6 to reinstall

OR

cp /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc /usr/lib/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc # Write over the old pc

OR

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig"
# This switches the path order I have now

Wish me luck!

- Ben

Dear All,

Oh! A fourth idea. On my LFS partition I made /usr/local a symlink to /usr

I tried doing what you suggested, but I still receive the exact same error. I didn't have a PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable, so I created one as you said. Even after doing this, I still had the problem. Is there not some easier way to get GLib 2.4.6 recognized?

Have you got the correct versions of atk and pango installed (and their .pc files are in PKG_CONFIG_PATH)?

I thought that I did, but could you tell me how I would find out if I have them installed and if I do, what version I currently have?

Find the files atk.pc and pango.pc - they are probably in /usr/lib/pkgconfig or /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig and cat them:

e.g.

Code:
# cat atk.pc
There should be something like:

Code:
Name: Atk
Description: Accessibility Toolkit
Version: 1.6.1
Requires: gobject-2.0 gmodule-2.0
in both of them. Copy and paste them up here.

Also, there should be a few pango*.pc files in the pkgconfig directories. Posty their names up here too.

Ok, I had made a mistake previously. I did not have ATK or Pango either. I downloaded ATK and installed it with no problems. However, I downloaed Pango 1.4.1 and I can't get it to complete the ./configure run because it says I don't have a version of glib that it wants. The version it's looking for is 2.4.0 and I have 2.4.6 installed. Is it a problem that I have a newer version than what it wants installed? And if not, what do I need to do so I can get Pango installed and subsequently finish installing my other things?

Here's what I get when I run ./configure. I left off some of the earlier stuff. I can post it too if it'd be helpful.

checking for shmat... yes
checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... yes
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for fontconfig >= 1.0.1... yes
checking FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS...
checking FONTCONFIG_LIBS... -lfontconfig
checking for freetype-config... /usr/bin/freetype-config
checking for FT_Get_Next_Char in -lfreetype... yes
checking for xft >= 2.0.0... yes
checking XFT_CFLAGS... -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/include/freetype2
checking XFT_LIBS... -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lXft -lX11 -lfreetype -lXrender -lfontconfig
checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
configure: error:
*** Glib 2.4.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** Glib is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.

ou can easily replicate what's going on inside the configure script. Just do this:
Code:
kermit root # pkg-config glib-2.0 --modversion
2.4.1
i would expect you are probably getting a check output more like
Code:
kermit root # pkg-config glibpants-2.0 --modversion
Package glibpants-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glibpants-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glibpants-2.0' found
in which case install the -devel rpm for glib-2.0.
