Problems with installing Hardware Sensors Indicator (indicator-sensors-0.1)

Asked by mo.ll on 2011-12-09

Hi, I've a problem with installing the Hardware Sensors Indicator (by Alex Murray?)
My first language is not english but german, so it would be a lot easier if you write in german (if possible), but i will understand english too :)
I downloaded indicator-sensors-0.1 and extracted it in my download folder.
Then I opened the terminal (I'm using Ubuntu) and typed, as in the file INSTALL said, 'cd 'path'' to the indicator-sensors-0.1 folder and then ./configure .
Although I had installed most packages I got several problems with 'Pqackage... not found...'
I solved all of them with installing a package with '-dev' at its end or with reinstalling them.
But then i got this problem:

No package 'appindicator3-0.1' 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 APPINDICATOR_CFLAGS
and APPINDICATOR_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I tried a lot and searched via google for an answer but I didn't find one.
I installed and reinstalled appindicator3-0.1, but it didn't help.
Then i saw that appindicator is installed in /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.6 and /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.7 and sensors indicator has only searched in /usr/bin (or is that wrong?)
Can anybody help me?
-> Sorry for mistakes, but i can't read what i wrote because the font size is very small and my browser underlines/crosses out everything in red because it wants to see german :P
Thanks for helping me.

Looks like you need libappindicator3-dev

I'd suggest using the prepackaged version from the PPA rather than trying to compile it yourself

Can you help with this problem?
