    Angry GTK Issues revisted


    I have been trying to install GTK on a SUSE Linux system. I am getting the errors that have been discussed in some past threads in this forum. The error that doesn't want to go away is the one about JPEG:

    checking for jpeg_destroy_decompress in -ljpeg... no
    configure: WARNING: *** JPEG loader will not be built (JPEG library not found) ***
    configure: error:
    *** Checks for JPEG loader failed. You can build without it by passing
    *** --without-libjpeg to configure but some programs using GTK+ may
    *** not work properly

    When I try to configure with --without-libjpeg, I get an error about not finding a libjpeg.la file.

    I have tried all the tricks suggested with no success. I do not know how to make the libjpeg.la file. libjpeg.so is appropriately linked and is in /usr/lib which is /etc/ld.so.conf.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Sincerely,
    Sarma

    Why not use the rpm for gtk? Have you run ldconfig?
