Tue 28 Jun 2011 05:02:07 PM UTC, original submission:

Reported privately in email. I'll put it here to keep track easier:

Ubuntu 11.04

regarding the following output:
* WARNING, missing program: gtk-config *

On Debian, install like: libgtk2.0-dev

However, I will try my best to continue without gtk-config.
Will not be able to check for gtk/gnome header files

libgtk2.0-dev does not have gtk-config. I needed to install libgtk1.2-dev:

I went here:http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/libgtk1.2-dev
and I manually installed the following debs in the order presented:
sudo dpkg -i libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libglib1.2-dev_1.2.10-19build1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgtk1.2-dev_1.2.10-18.1build2_amd64.deb

After this and also installing the other packages which were recommended by your configure script (libxtst-dev and libpanel-applet2-dev), the compilation seemed to go well.
