    Finding a Library

    I am trying to compile qjoypad but when I try to uses the following command "./config" when in the proper location, terminal tells me that I need libxtst. Now when I try to execute the command "Sudo apt-get install libxtst" it runs, but it cannot find libxtst. Any help?

    Please, read this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1518647, specially, post number 4, where there is a workaround propossed:

    Code:
    qjoypad-4.1.0/src$ ./config
    Error: you will need libxtst to compile this program
    
    sudo aptitude install libxtst-dev
    
    then head back to
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    The thread is old, but the problem seems to be the same.

    You need the exact package name:
    Code:
    apt-cache search libxtst
    or even better since you know you need the dev library:
    Code:
    apt-cache search libxtst dev
    Hope that helps.

    Thank you, but now I run across the problem of not having libsdl2-2.0-0(>=2.0.0). I'm relatively new to Ubuntu and I am using 12.04, probably should have said that before.

    For those who are saying things for qjoypad, it fixed that issue, but now I need to update to at least Qt 4.2, which I need help with. I'm hopeless XD

    Never mind Kostkon, I just had to select a different package. I've got it now.
