View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trouble Installing Icecat

February 4th, 2009, 04:57 AM
I am trying to install Icecat and have come across so many problems. Luckily, this forum is amazing and has helped me push through my inherent newb problems and get to a point I just can't figure out.

I've extracted the file and entered this:

rdiggs@rdiggs-laptop:~/Desktop/icecat-3.0.5-g1$ ./configure

After going through a lot of stuff, it finally gets to this point and I don't know what to do.

checking for sys/int_types.h... no
Building Python extensions using python-2.5 from /usr
configure: error: Could not compile basic X program.

If anyone can shed some light on this for me I would be very grateful.

You probably need the libxt-dev package installed.

sudo apt-get install libxt-dev
Then run ./configure again.
