If this has been answered elsewhere, I apologize... but I looked and can't find it.

I'm trying to come up to speed on GNOME development. I found this tutorial:

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-gnomenclature/

And downloaded the source and makefile. I *THINK* I have all of the development files installed. But when I run the makefile, I get an error:


/bin/sh: gnome-config: not found

And then of course, it can't find anything. In poking around on Google, it seems like the gnome-config is no longer used? Is that right?

Does anyone know how I can change the makefile to work?

gnome-config is installed by the package libgnome-dev, the older gnome library.

gnome-config is installed by the package libgnome-dev, the older gnome library.

So... what is the best thing to do. Install the older gnome library? Or change the makefile.

Is there a current preferred config to run?

Currently supported config is pkg-config.
Simply replace "gnome-config" with "pkg-config" in command lines.
