I am very new to using Ubuntu but I know the basics. I've been having a series of errors while trying to compile gtkpod2.1.4. I've managed to fix most of them so far with a little googling, mostly just needed to install dev packages. AT this point I am well and truly stuck though. Every time I run ./configure, I get this output:

Any idea how to fix this? I cannot seem to find the package necessary.

Thanks, Leo.

Are you running 12.04 or 13.10, could you add the info/tag to your question please? –  Sylvain Pineau Apr 6 at 16:30

Did you try to install libgpod-dev?

sudo apt-get install libgpod-dev

According to the INSTALL file of the tarball you need to install the following dependencies to build gtkpod2.1.4:

The following packages are required for building gtkpod:

    autoconf (at least 2.55)
    flex (or lex)
    gettext
    glib
    gtk+ (gtk2 for the 2.0.x stream / gtk3 for the 2.1.0+ stream)
    libgpod (at least 0.6.1)
          libgdl
          anjuta
    libid3tag (at least 0.15)
    libgnome-vfs-2.0 > 2.6 (for iPod autodetection under GNOME)

Thanks for the suggestion, I do in fact not have this. However, when I try to install it I get the error: The following packages have unmet dependencies: libgpod-dev : Depends: libimobiledevice-dev but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. And when I try to install libimobiledevice-dev I receive the error 'code'The following packages have unmet dependencies: libimobiledevice-dev : Depends: libimobiledevice4 (= 1.1.5-0ubuntu2) but 1.1.6-git20140105 is to be installed. Any ideas? –  Tomadox Apr 7 at 23:47
    
Try forcing the installation of the archive version (I think you set up a ppa that installed this 1.1.6 version): sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice4=1.1.5-0ubuntu2. And try again to install libgpod-dev –  Sylvain Pineau Apr 8 at 9:26
