# infinity plugin audacious

Hey guys I'm quite new to ubuntu so sorry for asking newbi questions but: I found this interessting visualization plug-in for audacious (http://sourceforge.net/projects/infinity-plugin/) but I have no idea how to compile it. The last two trys caused a systemcrash. Can someone please tell me what dependacies are required for the programm to compile...

BTW if it helps I get this error: configure: error: * pkg-config not found. See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/

UPDATE: I found pkg-config. You can install it by using the synaptics package manager. But now it's asking for glib-2.0...which is not listed there...at least not under this exact name. I've found this thread where someone installed libperl-dev & libgtk2.0-dev (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1607632) and it kinda worked for him. I'm trying that now. I going to give feedback on how it worked for me.

BTW: Thanks for all the replies ;-)

Another UPDATE: So here I am again. BTW libperl-dev & libgtk2.0-dev somehow managed to get the compiling process moving. But only a few lines further :-(. Now, and here is where I've ruined my previous ubuntu installations, it says:

checking for DBUSGLIB1... no configure: error: Package requirements (dbus-glib-1 >= 0.92) were not met: No package 'dbus-glib-1' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.

The first 3 lines kinda make sense. It was looking for a certain package, namely dbus-glib-1 , but couldn't find it in my system. The weird thing here is: I can't find this one either. I've look almost everywhere. A web search refers me to the package libdbus-glib-1-2 (http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libdbus-glib-1-2) but that one is already installed.

I'm afraid I have to consider figuring out what the second part means. I have to be honest here: I have no idea what i could possibly mean. Could anyone please give me some sort of hint where to start looking.

pkg-config is telling you that it cannot find a file named dbus-glib-1.pc so if you already installed dbus-glib-1-2, that means that you'll have to tell pkg-config where it is via the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable. You can try the following:

Start by opening a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and typing the command

locate dbus-glib-1.pc


It should tell you where that file is. On mine it says /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig/dbus-glib-1.pc Next type export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig:\$PKG_CONFIG_PATH (or whatever path your locate command output was) making sure to leave off /dbus-glib-1.pc from the end of the locate output. pkg-config should now be able to find dbus-glib.

If the locate command doesn't output anything, then dbus-glib is not installed and you'll have to install it using the command sudo apt-get install libdbus-glib-1-2. Depending on which version of Ubuntu you're running, you might have to type apt-cache search dbus-glib-1 and then sudo apt-get install a different version than 1-2. Be sure to avoid the packages that have -dbg , -dev , or -doc at the end of the title. Those aren't the ones you want.

Good luck.
