Oops: jpeg library not found. You need this one, please install.
Note: to compile stuff just the library packages are not enougth,
 you need also the *-devel packages.

THANKS!

Have you alredy tried to install the xawtv using the Ubuntu repositories...?

To install xawtv in Ubuntu

Please first enable the universe repository:

Open System → Administration → Software sources → [ Tab Ubuntu software ]
enable "Community Maintained open source software (universe)"
Close and confirm the repository reload.

Then open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install xawtv

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Hope this helps
