Problems With GTKHTML [Jan. 16th, 2008|02:23 pm]
LogJam

logjam

[slyfoot]
Hi folks, I've been trying to figure this problem for weeks, and I'm getting really frustrated: I can't compile logjam with libgtkhtml3 no matter what I do. I've installed libgtkhtml3 from the Slackware archives, but every time I try to compile with-gtkhtml30 it never works. I'd really like to be able to browse my offline entries, so if somone can help me figure out how to compile it, or point me to a pre-compiled binary with HTML support that will run on Slackware, I would really appreciate the help!

One of the problems you're probably running into is that the dependency tree for gtkhtml is fifty yards wide and thirty deep. I tried getting libgtkhtml3 installed on my own Slackware box once, compiling from source, and about the time I hit five levels deep in the dependency tree I just bagged it. Gnome has become a complete morass. It's like Windows, except on Linux.

Could be... that's why I tend to stick with KDE.

It would help if you posted the compiler error output. :)

It doesn't even get as far as the compiler. Whenever I run the configure script, it just tells me that gtkhtml support is "no."

You say you have installed libgtkhtml3 but have you also installed libgtkhtml3-dev or whatever it's called on Slackware.

You need libgtkhtml3 to *run* the application, but you need the development package with the header files to *build* it.

Ah, ok. You can check config.log to get what it ran to come to that conclusion.

I think your guess is mostly right. My guess is PKG_CONFIG_PATH.

I had great difficulties getting this sorted using VectorLinux, which is based on Slackware... all sorted out, thanks to kind members of this community, in the course of this thread. Could possibly be a similar problem?

wow. I was using Slackware up until very recently (dual booted with Gobolinux), but I left it recently in favor of Gobo. It's strange to hear of anyone using Slack these days. You liking 12? or did you stick with 11?

I'm still with 11. I guess I am with it more out of loyalty than anything else.
