    Missing cups.h while Compiling OOo

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to compile OOo from source and I keep getting error saying I'm missing cups.h, I have the appropriate dev file installed from synaptic, checked in /usr/include/cups and the file is there, also (just for the sake of trying) did a copy of the file into /usr/include.

    Any ideas? Trying to fix a bug but can't if I can't compile the source code. Thanks in advance

    You need to install the cups-dev or cups-devel packages (could also be libcups-dev or libcups-devel) using your distributions package manager. That will provide the header files needed to compile your package. Also try compiling with the following command
    ./configure --with-use-shell=bash --prefix=/usr/include/cups
