Re: Can't get programs to recognize GTK+-1.2.0
Hi Rob, you seem to know what you're doing so I'm hoping you can help me out. I've installed gtk+-2.2.4 from source and removed my old gtk-config beforehand, but now I can't find gtk-config anywhere on my system. Have I done something wrong? I used all the default options when installing
and gtk was installed in /usr/local
no sign of gtk-config though!
I'm tearing my hair out over this one! (I'm trying to get gimp2.0pre2 installed without much success!)
