    Installing Rhythmbox

    I have been attempting to install Rhythmbox, which is a .tar.xz file, and, following the directions in the package {once extracted} attempted to run the command ./configure while in the file containing Rhythmbox's source code. However, I got the following error message
    Code:
    checking for gobject-introspection... configure: error: gobject-introspection-1.0 is not installed
    However, gobject-introspection is installed. Does anyone know what the problem is?

    Re: Installing Rhythmbox

    Hi,

    I recently compiled rhythmbox from source and there were many errors like this one.

    You need to make sure the package-dev is also installed where package is the one named in the error. The -dev packages are not installed by default when the binary package is installed.

    Also, to make it just a little more fun the package named in the errors is not always exactely the same as the one needed in the system.

    Ubuntu have a good web site where you can search package names so I suggest you look there for the correct package name with -dev extension on the end.

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/

    It took me a couple of days to fix all errors, compile, make, and install rhythmbox, but that maybe because I'm new at this ...

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Installing Rhythmbox

    So how come, apt-get can install it without those packages? It's weird for me: downloading about 100MB to install Rhythmbox, where is the profit?
