Compiling XView with PNG & JPEG 6

Compiling XView with PNG & JPEG 6

Post by Gerall Kahl » Sun, 04 Jan 1998 04:00:00



I've got all the libraries.  I've read all the FAQ's.  I've
applied all the patches.  I'm just getting a can't find '-lX11'
library error after I've done everything to the Makefile I can
think of.

        I found the reference to -lX11 in the Makefile, and at the end
of the line added -l/usr/X11R6/lib.  This still doesn't produce
an exectuable.  If anyone's interested, I've got a script of the
compile, but I'm not posting it here for fear of the space it
would take up, and editing it is going to take a while...
        Anybody got any other ideas about the xv source tree and what it
wants to compile?  All comments appreciated!  I've had lots less
problems compiling my own programs...

Ordinarily, dirs should be specified on the command line to configure,
e.g.

configure --libdir=/usr/X11R6/lib

configure --help for the exact ones you need.

I got it running by adding a line to the Makefile at the
beginning of the cc options list:

-L/usr/X11R6/lib

        I also hadda hardwire the paths to the graphics libraries, but
that's alright.  Now Xview can draw improved jpegs and png's!
Unfortunately, the patch I used to get png support evidently
didn't include the ability to make thumbnails in the visual
schnauser.  I'll have to tinker with that...

        Thanks for the info--

1. Can't compile jpeg/png for GIMP

Can't seem to get jpeg-support to compile in gimp

I have libjpeg.so.6a* in /usr/local/lib
       jpeglib.h in /usr/local/include
(These are manually copied over since the hacked makefile for
libjpeg doesn't move the files.)

tried "./configure --with-libjpeg="/usr/local""

tried modifying the makefile in plug-ins/ (as suggested in
the developer's faq)

still configure reports:
checking for jpeg_destroy_decompress in -ljpeg... (cached) no
configure: warning: *** JPEG plug-in will not be built ***

Any suggestion will be appreciated. Please send copies to
kal at pobox dot org dot sg
so that I can receive the help sooner. Much thanks in advance.
(Can't sleep for few days already)

Regards,
Kal
