No GTK+ ?
Hi all. I was trying to install wireshark and ran into this error.
Now i did a bit of research on what GTK+ was and so on and found out that it should already be on my machine. But just in case that its not, how would i find out? And how would i install it with the yum package manager? Thanx in advance!
*** 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+ isn't available, so Wireshark can't be compiled
Are you using KDE or GNOME? If you are using GNOME, then GTK is already installed and then you have a problem (GTK is the toolkit used for GNOME). If you have KDE installed, simply installing GTK should do the trick.
Have you tried installing wireshark with yum yet?
Note also that gtk-1.x is not compatible with gtk-2.x. So, if this program requires gtk-1.x you will need to install gtk-1.x, even if you aready have gtk-2, that is, unless you are willing to port the program so it can work using gtk2 instead.
Yeah that was my first choice, But i couldnt find it. It wasnt in the Applications menu nor anywhere. I couldnt launch it from console or anything. I could find the files needed to run it but i couldnt launch it at all. So i tried to compile it from source and i got that error =/
