    Question compiling awn source tells me there's no python main lib?

    I've been trying to compile the source-code of the avant-window-navigator that is being developed now.. But when I try to use the ./configure that prepare the files for "make" it stops, when it's checking the python main library.

    Output:
    Code:
    checking for the distutils Python package... yes
    checking for Python include path... -I/usr/include/python2.6
    checking for Python library path... -L/usr/lib -lpython2.6
    checking python extra libraries... -L/usr/lib -lz -lpthread -ldl  -lutil
    checking python extra linking flags... -Xlinker -export-dynamic -Wl,-O1 -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions
    checking consistency of all components of python development environment... no
    configure: error: in `/home/artheus/Desktop/avn-src':
    configure: error:
      Could not link test program to Python. Maybe the main Python library has been
      installed in some non-standard library path. If so, pass it to configure,
      via the LDFLAGS environment variable.
      Example: ./configure LDFLAGS="-L/usr/non-standard-path/python/lib"

       You probably have to install the development version of the Python package
       for your distribution.  The exact name of this package varies among them.

    I am newb at compiling and developing in Linux, so if there is a really simple solution to this, please take it easy on me ^^

    Try installing the python2.6-dev package.

    I installed python2.6-dev, but that did not help. I also get this error message.

    Just to clarify. Installing python-dev solved this for me.
