I am currently trying to install and old version of Pango. I tried two versions, 10.5 and 1.1.1 and they say similar things. Pango 1.1.1 says:
I tried to run configure in two different versions of Pango, passing two different versions of FreeType to the configure with this command:
./configure PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Freetype-2.2.1/lib/pkgconfig/ ./configure PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Freetype-2.9.1/lib/pkgconfig/
The results is the same for both:
checking for X... no configure: WARNING: X development libraries not found checking for freetype-config... no checking freetype/internal/tterrors.h usability... no checking freetype/internal/tterrors.h presence... no checking for freetype/internal/tterrors.h... no checking for FT_Get_First_Char... no checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config checking for fontconfig >= 1.0.1... checking for xft >= 2.0.0... configure: error: *** Didn't find any of FreeType, X11, or Win32. *** Must have at least one backend to build
Pango 1.05 repeats the messages until FT_Get_First_Char and then says:
configure: error: *** Didn't find any of FreeType, X11, or Win32. *** Must have at least one backend to build Pango.
All I want to know is what packages I need to be able to compile Pango and where to find them.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04. I do not want to use any precompiled package, already built many other dependencies from the source and want to finish it from source packages, especially because I intend in the future to run the software that needs Pango in other distros.
The software that will need Pango only needs an old version, so I will not use a newer version, unless I have to (i.e. I cannot compile an older version). In last case, I may look for a pango dev package for my distro, but only as a last resource, if I cannot compile an old or even a newer version.
So, anyone has an idea of what packages I do need and where to find them?
