Xfe 0.66 - fails to recognize libfox lib is installed
I'm trying to install xfe 0.66. [mdk9.2] After installing the required library, libfox, via rpm [1.0.47-alt1 is the version that RPMdrake says i have already installed]; i tried to install xfce. During ./configure; this error msg came up:
checking for fxfindfox in -lFOX... no
configure: error: "libFOX not found"
EDIT: I have figured out, via the readme, that the default path for the libs is different than that of what xfce expected for them to be.....
[they're installed in /usr/lib
the default ones for xfe says its supposed to be in usr/local/lib/foxrc
- how should change the script ? I tried to copy the libfox file to the folder usr/local/lib/foxrc ; which i just created; but that did not work
Also, I tried to do RPM of xfe first, but i had trouble with that as well with error mgs...which was:
Some package requested cannot be installed:
xfe-0.66-1fdr1.i386 (due to unsatisfied fox[>= 1.0])
I've checked on the xfe site, along with google, and another linux forum, to no avail. If anyone could help, it's appreciated.
