Compiling gnome-games for natty

Asked by Bill Morita on 2011-11-15

The sources for gnome-games don't compile.
Configure complains that it needs gthreads-2.0
apt-get install gthreads-2.0 fails.

It would appear there is something I need that does not come from the Ubuntu repositories.

Suggestions on how to compile the sources for natty ?

Sorry can you explain better the problem and the error that comes?

I downloaded sources for natty gnome-games
The first step in compiling the sources is to execute "./configure" o the source directory.
This step does not complete because it says it needs gthreads-2.0
The message given is:

  configure: error: Package requirements (gthread-2.0) were not met:

  No package 'gthread-2.0' 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 GTHREAD_CFLAGS
  and GTHREAD_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
  See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Threads-2.0 is present in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

I have resolved the first issue by installing libglib2-dev

FYI: I am trying to compile: gnome-games-2.31.92

I continue to have library issues:

Using config source xml:merged:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults for schema installation
Using $(sysconfdir)/gconf/schemas as install directory for schema files
checking for gconftool-2... /usr/bin/gconftool-2
checking for GNOME... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gconf-2.0 >= 2.0) were not met:

No package 'gconf-2.0' 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 GNOME_CFLAGS
and GNOME_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Problem was resolved by following instructions at http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGames/Contributing

I am disappointed that some in this forum was not able to point me there sooner.
