    trouble installing ethereal


    heres my error
    *** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
    *** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to gtk-config.
    checking for glib-config... no
    checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.0... no
    *** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
    *** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to glib-config.
    configure: error: GLib distribution not found.


    i'm running mandrake 9.1 and i know that gtk and glib are installed on my machine, im guessing that the install is not set to the right paths? how do i fix this?
    Thanks

    GLib distribution not found.
    If your sure its installed then it would most likely be the user profile your logged in as. root profile with path statement are not the same as joe's or sue's. If you already have it, are you logged in as root? If so do you just have root priveleges or roots profile as well?

    The answer to your question is in the error you posted. You need to find the file gtk-config and then edit the Makefile for the program you are building and change the GTK_CONFIG path to where the file is on your system.
