I am trying to compile a package, which requires gstreamer-1.0 >= 1.0.3. I think I have an older vesion installed on my system. So I downloaded and compiled gstreamer-1.0.4 and it got installed in /usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0.

After I did that, I again tried to compile the package but it still gives the same error that I dont have "gstreamer-1.0 >= 1.0.3" .

I also tried to export the path

"export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0"

"whereis gstreamer-1.0" outputs

gstreamer-1: /usr/lib64/gstreamer-1.0 /usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0 /usr/libexec/gstreamer-1.0 /usr/share/gstreamer-1.0

is there any error regarding version, and please could you update the complete error log.. –  Sushantp606 Nov 30 '13 at 5:00
    
ok, I copied the entire output of the console, I hope that is what you wanted. –  Rushabh RajeshKumar Padalia Nov 30 '13 at 5:06
    
which ubuntu are you using ? –  Sushantp606 Nov 30 '13 at 5:28

You have to install the *-dev packages in order to compile something which uses/links against some library. I guess libgstreamer1.0-dev, libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev,.. is missing. (Install it with sudo apt-get libgstreamer1.0-dev, ...)

PS: You can check the version of some packages with apt-cache policy. Example: apt-cache policy libgstreamer1.0-dev
