    TiLP


    I have a TI-89 Graphing Calculator, and I would like to get TiLP working to transfer files. I tried using it in windows, but it has library errors, and if I try to compile it in linux, I get this error:

    Code:
    checking for ticables >= 3.8.0... Package ticables was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `ticables.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'ticables' found
    
    configure: error: Library requirements (ticables >= 3.8.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
    I have all the dependancies required [even the dependancies for the dependancies], and it just won't compile. What's up with this?

    well i am assuming that you did install ticables (if not you can obtain it from
    http://www.ticalc.org). since you DID install ticables (and even if you didn't you have just gotten it from ticalc.org!), try to find where you installed it to:
    Code:
    su -
    whereis ticables
    if that comes up with nothing, then:
    Code:
    find / -iname ticables -xdev 2>/dev/null
    and that should find it.
    then, as the user you are running ./configure as:
    Code:
    PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/path/to/ticables
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    then try configure again (with the same user you just set PKG_CONFIG_PATH with)

    I got TICables Library working just fine. Along with all the other Libraries I needed. However, I can't finish the 'make install.' I get this error:
    Code:
    Installing Gnome VFS MIME magic patterns...
    0       string          **TI                                    application/x-tilp
    Installing application registry in Gnome...
    Installing file and icons handling in Gnome...
    Installing TiLP menu entry in Gnome...
    Done.
    ---
    Installing KMimeMagic local data...
    grep: /usr/share/mimelnk/magic: No such file or directory
    /bin/sh: line 1: /usr/share/mimelnk/magic: No such file or directory
    make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/Desktop/tlip/tilp-6.76/desktop'
    make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
    .

    When I do a '-i' command, and then run tilp, it comes up with this error:
    Code:
    (tilp:21048): GLib-WARNING **: GError set over the top of a previous GError or uninitialized memory.
    This indicates a bug in someone's code. You must ensure an error is NULL before it's set.
    The overwriting error message was: Error opening directory '/usr/lib/tilp': No such file or directory
    
    ** ERROR **: tilp_plugins_scan: opendir error
    
    aborting...
    tilp    : scanning plug-ins... Aborted
    I think the two are related.. what do you guys think?

    the error message tells you the problem:
    it can't find /usr/lib/tilp.
    this tells me that you haven't installed some necessary library correctly...
    try:
    Code:
    mkdir /usr/lib/tilp
    and then try again. this will probably bring about more errors, but you never know...
