OpenSUSE 10.2

You need to install these packages to pass the compilation of SVN trunk:

  • gtkmm-devel
  • glibmm-devel
  • cairomm-devel
  • libsigc-2.0-devel
  • popt-devel
  • gc-6.6 (Boehm's collector)
  • intltool
  • + their dependencies
  • AND automake-1.8.5 or any other then 1.9.6 that is installed by default.
  • and any other optionally required packages

If you compile automake-1.8.5 by yourself then be sure that you install it to /usr prefix and not to /usr/local. If you still install to /usr/local, then instead of running "autogen.sh" on svn version, run:

  ACLOCAL_FLAGS="$ACLOCAL_FLAGS -I /usr/share/aclocal" ./autogen.sh

Then run ./configure; make; sudo make install as usually.

Thanks go to Dobey who helped a lot to figure out what was the problem.

Suse 9.0

One of the challenges with Suse 9.0 is the lack of a distro provided gtkmm2 and libsigc++ packages.

Best place to find them: ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/suse/usr-local-bin/9.0/ [ This URL does not exist anymore :-( ]

Suse 9.1 includes both now in the GNOME supplemental downloads.

Note that for SuSE the gtk+2 packages are called gtk2. The gtk+2 2.4 package is not provided via Yast but can be found via rpmseek as gtk2 and gtk2-devel

To find the .pc files, I had to set:

setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig/

In SuSE 9.1 I ran into this error:

  configure.in:25: required file `./ltmain.sh' not found

Copying /usr/share/libtool/ltmain.sh into the top directory fixed it.

For 0.40cvs the libgc dependency is added. In SuSE 9.1 this is package 'boehm-gc', but it doesn't work - you need to compile from source. Download from:


Then configure it with the command:

  $ ./configure --enable-cplus-plus

SuSE 9.1 also does not have libsigc++ 2.0; I couldn't find an rpm for it so ended up having to compile it from source, from http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/libsigc/libsigc++-2.0.3.tar.gz

I also had to compile gtkmm 2.4 and glib 2.4 from source; download them from ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gtkmm/2.4/ and http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/glibmm/2.4/

Looks like these packages are also available from here:ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/9.1-i386/RPMS.gnome/

Also, stuff got installed to /opt/gnome/bin/, so I had to also `export PATH=$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin/`
