    Exclamation k3b installation: "Can't find x includes"


    Hello all,

    I'm trying to update my version of k3b and after extracting all files and then typing
    Code:
    ./configure
    I get the following error after lots of lines whizz past the screen:
    Code:
    checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
    Does anyone know what paths I should be checking for, in what files?

    D'oh! How could I forget such valuable info! I'm using SuSE 10.0, with Packman updates. I have gcc 4.0.2.

    I'm quite a new Linux user and this idea of compiling your own software is a little strange to me from my history of, you guessed it, Windows, but am trying to get to grips with it; do you know of any good reading material I could possibly read to understand the process a little more?

    Ta,

    a good place to start is here http://www.linuxforums.com/forum/f19...-material.html

    then google is your friend
    the basics for installing anything is to make sure you have the following installed first

    1)kernel sources
    2)gcc/gcc++
    3)any make files

    then look for a readme file or install file.

    If the configure script got to checking for X, then it likely already passed the checks for gcc and make and all. Likely you need to install the -dev packages for X.

    since you're using Suse, why not just update via Yast?
