    Error with Webkit Build Procedure

    Hi everybody,

    I am new to Linux. I downloaded the WebKit source code from here. I am building the source code with help of this.

    After executing below command, i got errors related to glib-2.31.2.
    ./ --prefix=/usr
    I solved those errors and again issued above command. I got below errors.

    checking for ZLIB... configure: error: Package requirements (zlib) were not met:

    No package 'zlib' found

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables ZLIB_CFLAGS
    and ZLIB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    I searched in many forums for this problem, but no use. Please help me regarding this. Thanks

    You might need to install the "zlib1g-dev" package:

    Note that is a nice page to search for which packages might be missing.
