Hi all, I wanted to try out Synfig, the last time I came and tried it was versions ago and very unstable on Linux, so I saw a new version and thought I’d give it a go, cuz there was no other OSS Program like it.
Well I downloaded it with ETL, Installed ETL, and when I started installing Synfig itself (Not synfig studio the other one) and do a ./configure, I get an error saying that libxml++ needs to be installed. A SPECIFIC version. So what did I do? I went and downloaded it did a ./configure, and it says:
checking for libxml-2.0 >= 2.6.1 glibmm-2.4 >= 2.4.0… Package glibmm-2.4 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glibmm-2.4.pc’ to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package ‘glibmm-2.4’ found
configure: error: Library requirements (libxml-2.0 >= 2.6.1 glibmm-2.4 >= 2.4.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
So I went to get glibmm and then I need libsigc++!!!
I install that and it STILL Won’t work!!
