Problems with ./configure


Hi. I'm running Slackware 10.0 and I'm having trouble configuring gqview-1.4.3 and gphoto2-2.1.4. When I run ./configure for gqview I recieve the following message:

checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.2.0... no
*** Could not run GTK+ 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 GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
configure: error: GTK+ >= 2.2.0 not installed.

But I have the gtk+2-2.4.3 from the installation CD installed.

When I try to configure gphoto i get the following error:

checking for libgphoto2 >= 2.1.2... yes
checking GP_CFLAGS... -I/usr/include/gphoto2
checking GP_LIBS... -lgphoto2 -lm
checking for gp_library_version in -lgphoto2... no
configure: error: Sorry, you need at least release 2.1.2 of libgphoto2

But I've downloaded and installed libgphoto2-2.1.4.

Can anybody tell me what the problem is with my system?

looks like it can't find libraries, so maybe you have to run /sbin/ldconfig first. just guessing.

Have you tried doing
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig
before running ./configure?

What is your output for
gtk-config --libs

And what is the content of your /etc/ld.so.conf file ?

where exactly is the library file? if it were in /usr/lib/pkgconfig it would seem that the export PKG_CONFIG_PATH command would do the trick.

"gtk-config --libs" gives:

-L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk -lgdk -rdynamic -lgmodule -lglib -ldl -lXext -lX11 -lm

ld.so.conf:

/usr/local/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/i486-slackware-linux/lib
/opt/kde/lib
/usr/lib/qt/lib

/usr/lib/ contains (among others):

/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.400.3
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.la
/usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0
/usr/lib/libgtk.so
/usr/lib/libgtk.a
/usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0.9.1
/usr/lib/libgtk.la

/usr/lib/pkgconfig:

gtk+-2.0.pc
gtk+-x11-2.0.pc
gtk+.pc

I don't know if it will help, but try to add in /etc/ld.so.conf :
/lib
/usr/lib

try to compile this program test :
Code:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <gtk/gtk.h>
#include <gtk/gtkwindow.h>

int main (int argc, char **argv)
{
    GtkWidget *window = NULL;
    gtk_init (&argc, &argv);
    window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
    gtk_widget_show (window);
    gtk_main ();
    return (0);
}
name it gtk-test.c and compile with :
gcc `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0` gtk-test.c -o gtk-test
If it compiles successfully, your gtk 2 library is good

It seemed that I was missing the atk lib. After I installed it gqview configured and compiled correctly. But I still can't configure gphoto. I get the error message:

checking for libgphoto2 >= 2.1.2... yes
checking GP_CFLAGS... -I/usr/include/gphoto2
checking GP_LIBS... -lgphoto2 -lm
checking for gp_library_version in -lgphoto2... no
configure: error: Sorry, you need at least release 2.1.2 of libgphoto2

The file config.log contains the following lines:

configure:7327: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c -lgphoto2 -lgphoto2 -lm >&5
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.4/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin
/ld: cannot find -lgphoto2
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

And then a piece of code.

/usr/lib/ contains the file libgphoto2_port.so.0.5.1 and some symlinks to it.

Something is wrong about your libgphoto2 library, maybe this link will help :
