Full Version: Help Installing Libraries
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Hey I'm pretty knew to linux and really need to learn to do a few things since the CS department I'm in is now totally linux-based for the most part. I'm wanting to be able to develop c++ apps with Glade/Anjuta and need to, from what I can tell install certain libraries to do so. I'm using Fedora Core 1 and am having a hard time learning to install libraires. I download the tar.gz file to /usr/lib and then unzip. I need gtkmm, which needs gtk++,libsigc++,atk,and a few others.

I change to the directory(/usr/lib/glib-2.0.0) that everything was unziped to then at the command line did this

./configure --prefix/usr
make install

is this right??? because when I try to do the same with atk I get this

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.4.0, but GLIB (2.2.3)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from If GLIB is installed
*** but not in the same location as pkg-config add the location of the file
*** glib-2.0.pc to the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
