I want to install the wizardpen driver (Generic linux driver for pen-tablets) from source on Fedora 22. Upon attempting the install from source after downloading, it threw the following error about library dependencies:

No package 'xorg-server' found
No package 'xproto' found

I tried to search for the package xorg-server to install it with the following command:

sudo dnf search 'xorg-server'

However, it threw this error:

Error: No matches found.

The same thing happened with the package xproto. I am stuck without any clue. Please suggest how I can proceed with installing the 2 libraries 'xorg-server' and 'xproto' in Fedora, so that I can try installing the wizardpen driver from source.

  • Fedora 22 is EOL and the packages might be gone from the mirrors. Update to current version to get a new packages and updates – Jakuje Aug 4 '16 at 20:17
  • That is not the case. The package names I got from the error message were not the exact ones. Please see the answer I posted below. – Sambuddha Aug 6 '16 at 4:41

This question was answered by SteveGYBE on FedoraForum. The packages I was looking for were actually named:

  • xorg-x11-proto-devel
  • xorg-x11-server-devel

These provide the files "/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/xproto.pc" and "/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/xorg-server.pc" that the "pkg-config" program will be looking for. The fix was to run:

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-proto-devel
sudo dnf install xorg-x11-server-devel
