I'm attempting to install gnome-hideseek.0.6.0 (compiling from source) and have run into a few issues along the way.

The initial attempt went as follows.


clay@Boris:~/Downloads/gnome-hideseek-0.6.0$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.


After finding out that I needed libc6-dev and installing that via synaptic, I got it to go this far.

No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

I was able to discern that gtk+-2.0 was labeled libgtk2.0-dev and got that installed, but I'm unable to figure out how to get gconf-2.0.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a lot of effort to go through just to make the desktop on a cube have 4 different backgrounds so they animate when I spin it lol. (Even if there's an easier way to do that, I have to beat this problem to make me feel special)

On the terminal:


sudo apt-get install libgconf2-dev

apt-cache is your friend

apt-cache search gconf | grep dev
libgconf2-dev - GNOME configuration database system (development)

That should be what you need.

Worked like a charm, thanks :)
