build failed, complained a missing package

Asked by Joachim Schwender on 2016-07-03

I tried to build a package that i modified a little bit:
https://launchpad.net/~jschwender/+archive/ubuntu/xoscope
The build failed with :
checking for GTKDATABOX... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gtkdatabox) were not met:

No package 'gtkdatabox' found

but the referred package was installed before. On my local machine that build succseeds, no problem at all.
It would be fantastic if someone could help me out.

greetings

Perhaps you need to change the build-depends to include libgtkdatabox-0.9.2-0-dev instead of libgtkdatabox-0.9.2-0
