View Full Version : [other] Trying to install Avant-window-navigator-0.1.1, a non-standard prefix.

January 6th, 2009, 10:46 AM
I was installing avant-window-navigator-0.1.1 package following all installation procedures.When i was configuring on terminal, the package the following problem arose..

*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
checking for AWN... configure: error: Package requirements ( glib-2.0 gobject-2.0 gtk+-2.0 gdk-2.0 libwnck-1.0 gconf-2.0) were not met:

No package 'glib-2.0' found
No package 'gobject-2.0' founding
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
No package 'gdk-2.0' found
No package 'libwnck-1.0' found
No package 'gconf-2.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables AWN_CFLAGS
and AWN_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Would anybody help me to do it coz i dont knw where to start.
I,ve attached a file for more details concerning the whole process.

Avant-window-navigator is available in the repositories. You can install it through Synaptic, add/remove, or apt.

However, if you just really want to compile from source you will need to install the missing dependencies. The easiest way is (in my opinion) is open a terminal an do:

sudo apt-get build-dep avant-window-navigator
That should install everything you need to compile it.
