I have downloaded g2ipmsg from http://www.ipmsg.org/archive/g2ipmsg-0.9.6.tar.gz

While installing this package, it is causing some error.

 checking for G2IPMSG... configure: error: Package requirements (libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.14
                gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4
                glib-2.0 >= 2.8) were not met:

    No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' 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 G2IPMSG_CFLAGS
    and G2IPMSG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

How to resolve this error please let me know.

Ensure that you have the package libgnomeui-2.0 mentionned into the error message correctly installed. Depending of your distribution, use apt-get or yum to install it. You may also need to install gtk+-2.0 and glib-2.0 (install first package and check the updated error message if any).

  • As he is running a configure to compile from source, he also needs to install the development counterpart of each of the package you mention. In Ubuntu, libgnomeui-dev, libgtk-3-dev and libglib2.0-dev. In Centos / RedHat, the packages will have -devel in the name.

  • can you give me the link where i can get and download pls Mar 21, 2014 at 9:42
  • There is a tool in Linux that allows you to download packages like this. It is apt-get for debian and yum for red hat. I see in another question of you that you are using CentOS which is Red Hat based. Then connect with root access rights and make yum install <package name> to install the mentioned packages.
