View Full Version : Need help with autotools

November 23rd, 2009, 02:02 PM
Hi guys, I'm trying to fiddle with Xchat by adding some custom stuff like custom notifications and stuff, just something to pass time that's all :P
By default, Xchat loads the libnotify libraries at runtime, but I thought it would be better to make it link with libnotify when compiling.

The problem is I can't seem to figure out how to add an option to get xchat to link with libnotify. Xchat uses autotools and I'm zero with autotools.

So, can anyone help me out here? :)

Well, I got it solved all by meself :P
I just added this code to configure.in, that's all:

AC_PATH_PROG(pkgconfigpath, pkg-config)
AC_MSG_CHECKING(for libnotify through pkg-config)
if $pkgconfigpath libnotify --exists; then
CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS `$pkgconfigpath --cflags libnotify`"
LIBS="$LBS `$pkgconfigpath --libs libnotify`"
