./configure doesn't work in karmic

Asked by malev on 2010-03-21

Hi Curtis!
I'm having a strange problem while using ./configure in karmic.
It doesn't find gedit. It says, I don't have it installed.
I'm posting here the output:

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GEDIT_CFLAGS
and GEDIT_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

You do not have developer packages installed to build the plugin. This plugin requires the python-gtk-dev and gedit-dev packages installed.

Since you are using karmic, you probably want to use the PPA that is listed on the front page: https://launchpad.net/~sinzui/+archive/ppa. YOu can get the plugin and regular updates without setting getting the development tools.

Can you help with this problem?
