I have Ubuntu 7.10 and Gimp 2.4.2 how can I install the Liquid Rescale Library?
I've used Linux a long time, but certain installations just drive me up a wall and I lose it, usually just giving up. At one time it made sense to me, but no longer. Part of it's old age, part it medication and part is lack of patience anymore to take the time to figure these things out.. liquid scale just happens to be one of them and so..I finally broke down to ask for help here..
Here's the deal.. I'm running Debian on an older machine and trying to install I get the following message AFTER I bothered to install glib-2.0 (I hope I'm using the right pkg, but it installed perfectly like butter on bread.)
I get the following message:
checking for GLIB... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.8.0) were not met: Package glib-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'glib-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 GLIB_CFLAGS and GLIB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Just because I have decided to download and while I type this am installing glib-2.8.0 please tell me that's what I needed to do..if it all installed peachy keen after I finish typing then send this I'll return right away and tell you to completely ignore this and to delete it, but if 2.8.0 doesn't cut it I'll leave this message and beg someone to help me out..Sound fair?
Thanks… an old decrepit dude..
Still getting the exact same message above after installing glib-2.8.0
I have NO clue how to fix this..I've read endless pages on the subject and yet none makes sense to me. I've tried everything I can think of and I'm as lost as a puppy lost on a freeway in China.
Can anyone help me out here?
If after glib installation the message is still exactly the same, then you probably have glib installed in a non-standard location. My guess is that it got under /usr/local/lib instead of /usr/lib.
You may try for example
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0
If this works (i.e. prints out a version number and doesn't complain), you can give this command
and then try to call configure again.
If it doesn't work, you should look for the actual installation location, using this command (this might take some time):
find / -name glib-2.0.pc 2> /dev/null
If this finds a file, look at which directory it is located and use that in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH, as in the previous case.
I hope this helps.
I figured this out and feel like a complete moron at this point, but I'm old enough where even if everyone agrees with that statement it won't bother me…to much..
I had installed it a while back and had to REINSTALL gimp for some reason to embarrassing to mention and forgot to uninstall lqd-scale ..Sooo, I fooled around about 9 hours till I realized the problem and it's all fixed and looking like peanut butter on bread, jelly on rolls and stink on…an armpit.. (sanitized for your protection)
well…anyway It's fixed and thank you for trying. I will save your information for later problems sure to crop up.
