    Gnomad2 - No package gtk+-2.0 found


    Hi all.

    I'm having a bit of a problem istalling Gnomad2 so I can talk to my Creative NOMAD Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 player. (I know it's old and, not as pretty as some. But I love it!)

    I went through the steps listed on their website of installing things like libnjb among others, but when It comes to installing Gnomad2 itself I get dependancy errors when running ./configure

    Code:
    [root@localhost gnomad2-2.8.11]# ./configure
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    /bin/sh: /home/priest/Software/Music: No such file or directory
    configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... (cached) yes
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
    checking for GN... configure: error: Package requirements (             glib-2.0                gthread-2.0             libnjb >= 2.2.4                 gtk+-2.0 ) were not met:
    
    No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GN_CFLAGS
    and GN_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    It seems like there are things missing that it needs, but seeing as it specifically mentions gtk+-2.0 I checked in "Configure Your Computer", in software management and it definately shows that gtk+-2.0 is installed.

    If it helps I'm using Mandriva Free 2007 with KDE.

    If anyone could help me get this working it would be very appreciated. Or even just a way I can mount the device and a drive to simply copy files onto. As this is all I really need, although the functions of Gnomad2 would be nice for file management.

    If using Mandriva, you need to install a package called libgtk+2.0_0-devel using the software installer.

    If you have an internet connection you should consider setting up your urpmi sources and let that deal with all of your package and dependency requirements. Check out Easy urpmi. Once set up you should be able to find the gnomad packages in software installer or alternatively in the terminal run
    Code:
    sudo urpmi gnomad2
    to have the install run automatically.

    Thanks a lot for your help guys

    daark.child: When I look at the software installer under 'configure computer', it says that it is already installed.

    bigtomrodney: Wow, thanks a lot, I never knew it could be so easy. I updated the mirrors at EasyUrpmi, did urpmi gnomad2 and it worked perfectly.

    I've always kinda stuck to installing things from binaries, dont know why, just seemed more stable to me. Had no idea how easy using urpmi could be.

    Thanks a lot for your help, both of you.

    My favourite day using Mandrake (as it was then) was when I first used urpmi online. Bye bye dependencies!

    Glad it worked out for you
