gtk2 with xinput support issue

Hi everyone,

I have an old wacom graphire2 and this week i finally decided to install it on linux. Everything went ok until i launch Gimp and realize i have no pressure sensitivity support. After some time googling i discovered this was an issue with gtk2 not being compiled with --with-xinput=yes flag.

The problem is that configure doesn't find 2 packages, the xrender and the xfixes which are required, it doesn't output an error, i simply get no pressure sensitivity under Gimp. Can anyone tell me what packages are those and where can i get them?

P.S - I know it's not a xorg.conf problem because xidump binary that comes with linux wacom project's driver can detect the pressure differences.

Thanks in advance for any help.
