    Configuring gtk, libX11 not found.

    So here is the problem. I type ./configure and it shows me this message "configure: error: *** libX11 not found. Check 'config.log' for more details."

    But I'm sure I have libX11 installed. How can I fix this?

    Edit: I'm using Ubuntu 8.04

    Ubuntu already has a large list of packages available in synaptic. You should install software this way rather than compiling from sources.

    However, if you don't have any other choice, headers are available in *-dev packages. You may want to take a look at libx11-dev here.

    In my case (using jhbuilder), it was installing libxext-dev that made it work

    libxi-dev package was also necessary
