    What package contains Xlib.h?


    I'm trying to compile (I think) imwheel and it coughs up. So I go through the hideous list of errors and find a lot of "can't find"s. So I open the jax directory and look at the first error and find it is in jax.h. In that it includes X11/Xlib.h . So I look and can't find that on the system. So.... any idea what package I can install that will provide that header file? I've installed the X11R6 library but it doesn't seem to include this one.

    Thanks!

    You will need the "XFree86-devel" package for xlib.h

    This thread was one year ago, nowadays most distributions use X.org so that would be something like xorg-devel
    I\'m so tired .....

    You can find "X11/Xlib.h" and all X development files installing package "xlibs-dev"

    I had the same problem, and probably I can help you. Whith ubuntu I installed the debian package libx11-dev that contain this header file.
