Error while installing gtk+ in RHEL WS 4.0

Hello, when i go to install gtk+-2.0.0 in RHEL WS 4.0 i get this error when i type ./configure

checking for freetype-config... /usr/local/bin/freetype-config
checking For sufficiently new FreeType (at least 2.0.1)... no
configure: error: pangoxft Pango backend found but did not find freetype libraries



I did install atk-1.0.0, freetype-2.2.1, glib-2.0.0, pango-1.0.0, pkgconfig-0.14.0

what can i do?

Shalom,

Get the rpm version of the application. At least this will tell you what dependent applications are not installed when the rpm -ivh installation fails.

Re: Error while installing gtk+ in RHEL WS 4.0

you should also install freetype-dev packages, these contain the include files etc needed for compiling software using that specific lib. i'm sure you're missing other 'dev' packages as well.
