    [GIMP] Pb with freetype2 (semi resolved)


    hi,

    I try to install gimp2 for my mandrake10.0.
    I followed the gimp's site instructions, i mean installing all needed libraries beginning by upgrading freetype/GTK...

    I first install freetype2 but when i compile GTK2 sources i get an error :

    ***********************************************
    ...
    checking for freetype-config... /usr/bin/freetype-config
    checking For sufficiently new FreeType (at least 2.0.1)... no
    configure: error: pangoxft Pango backend found but did not find freetype libraries
    ***********************************************

    When i insalled freetype2 libraries i did not obtained any error but it seems that it didn't worked ??! (freetype version : 2.1.9)

    an idea ? Thanks...

    I believe there are rpm's for Gimp2 available for MDK 10.0. You could always use URPMI and have all of the dependencies solved for you. If not, there are RPM's for Gimp2 for 10.1.

    i tried to use rpm's but they didn't worked...i decided then to use and compile sources. It's a good way (i think) to learn more about linux by resolving myself or with little help ( ) pbs!

    I think i found a solution for my pb : i commented theses lignes in the configure file for GTK+2.

    # if $have_freetype ; then
    # :
    # else
    # { { echo "$as_me:$LINENO: error: pangoxft Pango backend found but did not find freetype libraries" >&5
    #echo "$as_me: error: pangoxft Pango backend found but did not find freetype libraries" >&2;}
    # { (exit 1); exit 1; }; }
    # fi

    I did not then had any pb with the installation of GIMP2 and it's perfectly working now !
