    GTK2 and ./configure

    I'm trying to compile a program (gipc) to use with my Intel Pocket Concert mp3 player (yeah, I know, I can't really afford an iPod right now though...). When I run ./configure, I get the following error:

    checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0... no
    *** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
    *** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
    *** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
    configure: error: GTK+-2.0.x or newer required

    I have GTK+ 2.4 installed on my system, and every application that depends on it seems to work just fine. Is there any way I can find the exact directory that GTK+2 is installed in and give that as an argument to ./configure, allowing it to compile knowing where GTK+2 is?


  2. #2
    ... And what's in the log?

  3. #3
    ./configure --help
    And read the README and INSTALL files in the source directory they normally have helpful information in them.
