Re: I can not install nmapfe.

Good day Roman, 

You searched for the wrong file. PKG_CONFIG_PATH is supposed to be the
path to pkg-config configuration directory, while you searched for
pkg-config binary. You should look in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
(default path for compilation) and /usr/lib/pkgconfig (distribution
default) directories. These are the directories where all gnome
packages store their configuration files.

So, first see if there is a file for glib-2 in
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig. If it's there, change you PKG_CONFIG_PATH as
following:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH

See manual page of pkg-config: 'man pkg-config'.

cheers,
~manu

Good Day

Today I made a search of the file pkg-config and it
was found in this location

/usr/bin

then I wrote this command.

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/bin
echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
/usr/bin/

then I go to the nmapfe folder and type ./configure

Everything goes fine untill I see this:

checking for gtk-config... /usr/bin/gtk-config
checking for GTK - version >= 1.0.0... ./configure:
line 2292: /usr/bin/gtk-config: No such file or
directory
./configure: line 2293: /usr/bin/gtk-config: No such
file or directory
./configure: line 2295: /usr/bin/gtk-config: No such

./configure: line 2297: /usr/bin/gtk-config: No such
file or directory
./configure: line 2299: /usr/bin/gtk-config: No such
file or directory
no
*** Could not run GTK test program, checking why...

NMAP SHOULD STILL WORK
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile

Now what do you think I should do ?.

I will apretiate any answer to this e-mail.

The real thing is that I am finding very difficult to
install the libraries needed to install nmapfe.

Sincerely
Román Posadas L.

How did you install glib-2.6? If you have compiled
it and didn't change
prefix, it would go to /usr/local by default, while
system default is
generally /usr. So you must be having 2 glib
packages in this case. Gnome
based softwares use pkgconfig to find out various
parameters about installed
packages.

You'll have to add following env variable in your
shell:

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH

After adding this, gtk compilation will be able to
find new glib.

Cheers,
Manu

Good day

My name is Roman and I am from Mexico City, I want
to
install nmapfe, however:

This occurs when I click make install

nmapfe.c:114:2: #error "Your system does not
appear to
have GTK (www.gtk.org <http://www.gtk.org>)
installed. Thus the Nmap X
Front End will not compile. You should still be
able
to use Nmap the normal way (via text console).
GUIs
are for wimps anyway :)"
make[1]: *** [nmapfe.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/root/nmap-3.81/nmapfe'
make: *** [nmapfe/nmapfe] Error 2

I can install glib-2.6.0

When I try to install gtk+-2.6.0 I get this
message:

checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0 atk >= 1.0.1
pango >= 1.7.0... Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0'
but
version of GLib is 2.4.7

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0
=
2.6.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.7.0) not met;
consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment
variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard
prefix
so pkg-config can find them.

How do I know if I meet the library requirements ?
