    Re: ./configure error in

    gnome-system-tools can be found in Ubuntu's repositories. You can install it with #'apt-get install gnome-system-tools'

    Is this not an acceptable way of installation for you?

    OR

    Also, intltool is found in the repositories. Try installing it with #'apt-get install intltool' and then re-run your ./configure.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Good luck!

    Re: ./configure error in

    Looks like you're missing one or more dependencies. If I run apt-cache search libgettext dev, the results are

    libgettext-ocaml-dev - OCaml internationalization library
    gettext - GNU Internationalization utilities

    Since you say you already have gettext, try sudo apt-get install libgettext-ocaml-dev and see if that works.

    Re: ./configure error in

    after doing both of the suggested installs above the ./configure gets past what was not working before, but now i have the following error
    Code:
    configure: error: glib-compile-schemas not found.

    In order to for this thread to be resolved, and help any future Searchers/Googlers, would you mind trying to get it to compile?

    It seems that glib-compile-schemas is part of glib2. Is it possible you are missing glib2 library?

    PHP Code:
    sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev 
    See if that helps

    Re: ./configure error in

    Sorry for posting to old thread, but recently I have ran into the same problem,
    and successfully solved it using an alternative way:

    Run
    Code:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
    before ./configure , make , make install the gettext library.

    Hope that will help to a lot of people, since it's the first search result in Google.
