    This means you need to install the 'development version' of a particular package which will contain the header files. These always end with *.h ... Is there a development version of ksmoothdock? It can sometimes be hard to decide what the missing package is, but that's what the error means.

    You have some missing dependencies so you can't build the package. If it is not really needed to build it by yourself, I recommend that you download a precompiled package.

    If you still want to compile the program, you will need to install the dependencies. The configure script usually creates a .log file. Take a look in order to find the libraries that you need.

    Best regards
