    Guifications ./configure error message and Glib version

    Hi all

    I get this error when attempting to ./configure Guifications for Pidgin:

    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.7... yes
    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... 
    *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.14.0, but GLIB (2.12.11)
    *** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
    *** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
    *** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
    *** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
    *** required on your system.
    *** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    *** to point to the correct configuration files
    configure: error:
    *** GLib 2.0 is required to build Guifications; please make sure you have the
    *** GLib development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is always
    *** available at
    I have installed the latest version of glib (2.14.0) but still the error message appears...

    I don't know where to look anymore, u guys have some place to point me to?

    Thanks in advance,

    What Linux distribution (and its version) are you using. Try uninstalling the version of glib2 you installed and then install the devel package for glib2 using your distributions package manager.
