Install AWN with bzr

Asked by Jack on 2007-08-01

After doing:

$ bzr co http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~awn-core/awn/trunk avant-window-navigator
$ cd avant-window-navigator
$ ./autogen.sh && make && sudo make install

I get the error:

***Error***: some autoconf macros required to build avant-panel-menu
were not found in your aclocal path, or some forbidden
macros were found. Perhaps you need to adjust your
ACLOCAL_FLAGS?

I have the latest automake but it's telling me I need glib-gettext, where do I find that?

Cheers,
Jack

Do you have all the dependencies?

Try this:

sudo apt-get install build-essential automake1.9 autotools-dev libxdamage-dev libxcomposite-dev libgnome2-common libgnome2-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libgnome-vfs-dev libgtk2.0-dev libwnck-dev libgconf2-dev libglib2.0-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgnomevfs2-0 libgnome-desktop-2 libgnome2-0 libwnck-common python-gtk2 python-gconf bzr gnome-common

Yeah that solved all the dependencies, thanks a lot! Maybe this dependency list should be available somewhere, if it is already and I'm too blind/stupid to find it then don't worry!
