Gthumb does not compile
« on: April 05, 2008, 06:06:37 am »

I've a quite large collection of scripts that rely on gthumb, so I need it.
Or, I need a similar replacement.
I've downloaded gthumb but its "./configure" scripts rises this error:

"...checking for orbit-idl-2... /usr/bin/orbit-idl-2
checking for GTHUMB... configure: error: Package requirements ( glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0                               gthread-2.0 gmodule-2.0                                              gtk+-2.0 >= 2.10.0                              libgnome-2.0 >= 2.6.0libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.6.0                 libgnomecanvas-2.0 >= 2.6.0             libbonobo-2.0 >= 2.6.0                  libbonoboui-2.0 >= 2.6.0                     bonobo-activation-2.0 >= 2.6.0          gnome-vfs-2.0 >= 2.6.0                  gnome-vfs-module-2.0                                 libexif >= 0.6.13                       libxml-2.0 >= 2.4.0                 libglade-2.0 >= 2.4.0) were not met:

No package 'libgnome-2.0' found

No package 'libbonoboui-2.0' found
No package 'bonobo-activation-2.0' found
No package 'gnome-vfs-2.0' found
No package 'gnome-vfs-module-2.0' 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 GTHUMB_CFLAGS
and GTHUMB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details."

How can I solve this issue?
Thanks in advance to everyone who even just paid attention so far :)

Vector has a few gnome libs included, but not many since KDE is the base.
There are 2 things that you could do. Install the libs. that were requested, or install
