Installing rpm's in ubuntu


I have been trying for a bit now to get gtk-devel onto my ubuntu installation.

it's required for ogle, a dvd player.

it can't be found very easily, and the only package I've found for it is a rpm.

I unpackaged the rpm and moved the files where it seemed they wanted to go, and I STILL get the message

*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.
configure: error: You must have gtk+ development files


when trying to run ./configure for the gui frontend for ogle.

since I'm a really persistent guy, I want to get this working. how do you install a RPM correctly in ubuntu?

Ogle's in the the Universe repository.

Follow these directions:

http://ubuntuguide.org/#extrarepositories

Comment out (by putting a # in front of each line) the backports--those are down, and change all the hoary references to breezy if you're using 5.10 (instead of 5.04).

Then, type this in the terminal
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ogle

Actually, never mind--I just saw in your profile you're using Hoary Hedgehog--that's 5.04, so keep everything the way it is (except the backports). Breezy Badger is 5.10.

So, your /etc/apt/sources.list should look like this when you're done
Code:
## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch updated software from the network
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch major bug fix updates produced
## after the final release of the distribution.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-updates main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-updates main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe'
## repository.
## N.B. software from this repository is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED by the Ubuntu
## team, and may not be under a free licence. Please satisfy yourself as to
## your rights to use the software. Also, please note that software in
## universe WILL NOT receive any review or updates from the Ubuntu security
## team.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary universe
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary universe

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security main restricted

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security universe
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-security universe

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary multiverse
Then, you should save it and
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ogle

I was only curious because I use the updater a lot and might have upgraded.

I installed ogle as directed... but now when I select applications -> sound & video -> ogle it starts loading and then crashes with no error message. unless ubuntu has an error log...

That's weird. I've never encountered that. It may live in /var/log somewhere. I'd post a new thread about that.
