    Unable to use 'make gconfig' command for kernel configuration.


    I tried
    'make gconfig' command, but it gave error output as :

    Code:
    root{Just Do It !}:/usr/src/linux-3.5.3# make gconfig
    *
    * Unable to find the GTK+ installation. Please make sure that
    * the GTK+ 2.0 development package is correctly installed...
    * You need gtk+-2.0, glib-2.0 and libglade-2.0.
    *
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/kconfig/.tmp_gtkcheck', needed by `scripts/kconfig/gconf.o'.  Stop.
    make: *** [gconfig] Error 2
    root{Just Do It !}:/usr/src/linux-3.5.3#
    so I installed GTK+ & followed compilation steps as given at download page.
    developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/gtk-building.html

    Now my gtk is installed at /proc/gtk/bin

    but still I am getting shown error message after giving 'make gconfig'
    do I need to set some paths ??
    or is there anything other?

    Also if I want to avoid gtk compilation given as per website source, is there any other simple thing to do ? like ubuntu package manager etc..

    Hi and welcome to the forums.

    What distribution are you using? You need to use your distributions package manager to install the gtk or gtk2 development packages (the libraries are usually named something like gtk2-devel or libgtk2-devel). Alternatively just do "make menuconfig" which will give you a text based interface.

    I am using Ubuntu 12.4
    The packages u mentioned are not available with package manager
    But I have installed 'Glade Interface Designer (glade-gtk2)'
    I think it took care for needed GTK installations.

    so what to do next ?

    If I were you, I wouldn't bother with "make gtkconfig", just use "make menuconfig". Its a text based UI, but you achieve the same thing. I personally don't know many people that use "make gconfig" when compiling kernels.
