I'm attempting to compile the latest f-spot 0.3.4 and I'm getting stuck with this error when running ./configure:


checking for mono... /usr/bin/mono
checking for gmcs... /usr/bin/gmcs
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for GDU_MODULE_VERSION_CHECK... yes
checking for mono.pc... configure: error: missing the mono.pc file, usually found in the mono-devel package


I ran locate and whereis after updatedb to try and find the missing file... it doesn't seem to be on my computer. This isn't the first time I've ran into this type of problem, so, I'm hoping someone can fill me in on a solution :)

haha....... thanks :)

Well I installed mono-devel, but I get the same error. Locate mono.pc doesn't find the file...

nickoli_02,

Ok, try installing libmono-dev instead.
