    gthread package


    I have been trying install mplayerplugin. I installed the mozilla and compiler files.
    then when I run ./configure the last line says missing gthread package. Does anyone have any ideas to find or install this file.

    My os is suse 10.0.

    Here is the konsole output

    I have done a google search with no luck on identifying the source of the file I need.

    i solved this by installing the libglib2.0-dev package
    this was not on suse but it may well still be the same package you need

    I had the same problem.

    Installed glib2-devel package and it worked fine.


    I am using Suse 10.3
