trying to install but ?
« on: 2013/01/28, 21:58:40 »
I want to install something with ./configure make and so on, I get this when I try:
Code: [Select]
ERROR: Missing commands:
  pkg-config
./configure: 353: ./configure: pkg-config: not found

ERROR: Unsatisfied dependencies:
./configure: 357: ./configure: pkg-config: not found
  gtk+-2.0 >= 2.18
./configure: 357: ./configure: pkg-config: not found
  gdk-2.0
./configure: 357: ./configure: pkg-config: not found
  glib-2.0
./configure: 357: ./configure: pkg-config: not found
  libcrypto (a part of OpenSSL)
./configure: 357: ./configure: pkg-config: not found
  x11 (X11 library)
Instead of guessing what I need to install to get this to work, can somebody tell me?

you need to install the pkg-config package

Once you install pkg-config, try the ./configure again and any missing dependencies you'll need to install. Usually these are in -dev packages

Ok, thanks, I got it with a little googling and so. It's really not very easy to know which packages to install because this dependencies is usually hidden inside some package

oh that's good you got to get rid of the errors, and I agree finding the right packages to satisfy the missing deps for the application you are trying to build from source can be a real PITA at times
