Error during indicator-appmenu compilation

Asked by lcavalheiro on 2016-03-04

I'm trying to compile indicator-appmenu and install it on Slackware. But I'm bumping on this error:

hud_cli-hud-cli.o: In function `print_suggestions':
hud-cli.c:(.text+0x21e): undefined reference to `pango_parse_markup'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:799: recipe for target 'hud-cli' failed
make[3]: *** [hud-cli] Error 1

I have Pango installed on computer. Also, I have no idea why I'm getting this error.

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a

And what version of the application are you trying to compile?

Thanks

lcavalheiro (contas) said : #2

On Slackware there is no lsb_release. I'm running Slackware64 -current version.

# uname -a
Linux slacklazarus 4.4.3 #1 SMP Fri Feb 26 14:52:38 CST 2016 x86_64 AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

I'm trying to compile indicator-appmenu 12.10.3

Then its nothing to do with Ubuntu, which is all that is supported here. You need a Slackware forum:

Sorry, friend, but it is an error of compilation of indicator-appmenu software. On README there's few hints about this compilation (nothing more running "$ ./configure && make && sudo make install"), so I supposed I could get some help about any undocumented step ou missing dependency (since there is no dependencies list on source tarball). This is clearly a missing dependency or ./configure issue.

But I can see now I've make a huge mistake. No support from you to your software, right? Nice to know it. Thanks for nothing.

This is the question area for indicator-appmenu on Ubuntu.
If you are not running Ubuntu, you are definitely wrong here.

Maybe you get a suitable answer in the area https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu-menu-bar

And by the way, version 12.10.3 is no more in use on any Ubuntu release.

The build-depends are:
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 9), dh-autoreconf, libglib2.0-dev (>= 2.35.4), libgtk-3-dev, gtk-doc-tools, gnome-common, intltool, dbus-test-runner, xvfb, libindicator3-dev (>= 0.4.90), libdbusmenu-glib-dev (>= 0.5.90), libdbusmenu-gtk3-dev (>= 0.5.90), libdbusmenu-jsonloader-dev (>= 0.5.90), libbamf3-dev (>= 0.2.53), libappindicator3-dev, indicator-application (>= 0.4.90)

Installing these packages on Ubuntu is sufficient to compile the package on Ubuntu.
We do not have any knowledge, what you have to do to meet these dependencies on Slackware.

Ah, at least one useful answer. But it puzzled me even more. I downloaded this version of indicator-appmenu from https://launchpad.net/indicator-appmenu, and it was presented to me as the most recent release available. So if you say to me Ubuntu doesn't use this version more and it is the most recent version on official project homepage, where can I find the real most recent version of it?

And about this dependencies list... I can easily translate it to other distributions, but would be so painful putting this info along with source code?

Apparently the development has been moved elsewhere, https://launchpad.net/indicator-appmenu/15.10

And the Build depends information is contained in the source (debian/control)

Can you help with this problem?
