I am pretty much new to Linux. I am trying to install tint2 on CentOS. When I try to install using the command
yum install tint2, it gave following error
checking for X11... configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xcomposite xdamage xinerama xrender xrandr) were not met: No package 'xcomposite' found No package 'xdamage' found No package 'xinerama' found No package 'xrandr' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables X11_CFLAGS and X11_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.`
When I try to install those packages which I belive should be done using
$>yum install xinerama Failed to set locale, defaulting to C Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: mirrors.lga7.us.voxel.net * extras: mirror.rackspace.com * updates: mirror.atlanticmetro.net Setting up Install Process No package xinerama available. Nothing to do
I am bit unclear here. How can I change the yum settings to look for x* packages at the different repository where packages are available?
What does it mean when it says
"Alternatively, you may set the environment variables X11_CFLAGS and X11_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
