Gnome installation: gdk-pixbuf/libbonoboui conflict

Gnome installation: gdk-pixbuf/libbonoboui conflict

Post by fra.. » Fri, 27 Jun 2003 11:17:31

I dont't use gnome, but for some applications I need to install some of
its libraries. I am installing from source. After some days of
installation, I came to
./configure said that I need
or better instead of my present 0.9.0 version. So I installed that.
Configuring libbonoboui went well, but now make stopped with an error
message about a missing semicolon in gtkimage.h, which is rubbish, and
Google pointed me to an info that this was due to a gdk-pixbuf version

So what do I do now:

- How do I find out the conflicting modules?

- How do I avoid eternal updating, continuously generating new

1. gdk-pixbuf (Gnome) compile error on Solaris

I'm getting the following errors when I'm trying to compile gdk-pixbuf on a
sparc solaris8 system:

/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc  -g -O2  -o -rpath
/usr/local/lib/gdk-pixbuf/loaders -version-info 1:0:0 -module io-png.lo
-lpng -lz
rm -fr .libs/ .libs/libpixbufloader-png.*
/usr/ccs/bin/ld -G -h -o
.libs/  io-png.lo  -lpng -lz -lc
ld: fatal: library -lpng: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to
make[3]: *** [] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/opt/dist/gnome/req/gdk-pixbuf-0.8.0/gdk-pixbuf'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Now, it's saying that the library png is not found but it's looking in
/usr/local/lib and they exist there as shown below.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to continue further?  I'm having a similar
problem with ORBit as well and I would imagine the same fix would apply for
