configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.18.0 gobject-2.0 gio-2.0 desktop-agnostic >= 0.3.9 dbus-glib-1) were not met:

No package 'desktop-agnostic' found
No package 'dbus-glib-1' 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 DOCKMANAGER_DAEMON_CFLAGS
and DOCKMANAGER_DAEMON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I installed the missing packages
''dbus-glib-1' with success

and then trying
'desktop-agnostic'

desktop agnostic was only available as a tarball
installing desktop agnostic I got the following ouput in the terminal

Robert Dyer (psybers) said : #1

1. The problem you pasted (at the end) is a problem compiling libdesktop-agnostic, please request support from that library's maintainers.

2. DockManager is deprecated and no longer supported.

Bri Hays (srqbri) said : #2

That results in about 1/3 of the functionality of the Dockit software program deprecated

Robert Dyer (psybers) said : #3

I don't know what Dockit is, but you can contact their maintainers and they can always use a newer library.

DockManager was deprecated in favor of Unity's libunity interface. Most docks already support that interface (at least, my docks do: Docky, Plank).

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Bri Hays for more information if necessary.
