    X11 libraries

    I was compiling fvwm and I got this error:
    Code:
    X11 libraries or header files could not be found.  Please make
    sure the X11 development package is installed on your system.
    If it is definitely installed, try setting the include and library
    paths with the --x-include and --x-libraries options of configure.
    Fvwm can not be compiled without the X11 development environment
    
    Aborting.
    Where can I find these files?

    Re: X11 libraries

    Hello,
    I have the same problem installing certain apps, e.g. soapUI (install shell script 'soapUI-x32-4.5.1.sh'). First, I thought the problem was related to Java version, and I uninstalled OpenJDK and rather upgraded to Oracle/Sun Java 1.7_07. However, this didn't fix the problem, and I keep getting error message saying that GUI couldn't be shown due to lack of X11 server. (Note that I'm running Unity front-end, and the shell script is triggered from a terminal started under Unity.)

    This is the error message from the soapUI installer script + result of 'sudo apt-get install libx11-dev':

    alfs@Miraculix:~$ bash Downloads/soapUI-x32-4.5.1.sh
    Unpacking JRE ...
    Preparing JRE ...
    Starting Installer ...
    Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server.
    ************************************************** *****************
    You can also run this application in console mode without
    access to an X server by passing the argument -c
    ************************************************** *****************
    alfs@Miraculix:~$

    alfs@Miraculix:~$ sudo apt-get install libx11-dev
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    libx11-dev is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    alfs@Miraculix:~$

    I have a slight suspicion that the problem is caused by my machine running 64 bit version of X11 whereas the app requires 32 bit. However, I have been running soapUI succesfully until last update pushed from Ubuntu's 'System Update'.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot!
