    Unhappy Adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable


    How do i adjust that path??

    On many pages on internet i find that i need to configure that path, but how do i do it?

    HTML Code:
    Package gtkmm-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtkmm-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    environment variable
    No package 'gtkmm-2.0' found
    configure: error: Library requirements (gtkmm-2.0 >= 2.2.0) not met; consider
    adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in
    a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

    this is always happen when you trying to compile a program. You dont have to set a search path for pkg config. I can see that gtkmm2 is the problem so make sure you have installed gtkmm2-devel before proceed to compiling a application. Same goes to other components if the console print a result like this for example like libnotify (im just guest it..), so all you need to do is install libnotify-devel for its pkg config related file.

    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `freetype2.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    Package 'freetype2', required by 'cairo', not 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 BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS
    and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details
