VectorLinux Light and libgtk2-dev
« on: July 02, 2011, 11:45:20 am »

I am running VL 6.0 Light and tried to compile wxGTK version 2.8.12. Unfortunatelly, the configure script complains:
Code: [Select]
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
configure: error:
The development files for GTK+ were not found. For GTK+ 2, please
ensure that pkg-config is in the path and that gtk+-2.0.pc is
installed. For GTK+ 1.2 please check that gtk-config is in the path,
and that the version is 1.2.3 or above. Also check that the
libraries returned by 'pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs' or 'gtk-config
--libs' are in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or equivalent.

It seems that the libgtk2-dev is not installed and I can not find it with Gslapt Package Manager.

What can I do to make it work?

THanks in advance for your help
