I've recently downloaded g2ipmsg (IP Messenger for Ubuntu 11.10). However - this comes not as an installable package as previous ubuntu versions.
Thus I think I need to compile it. This application needs gtk so I've installed
libgtk2.0-dev using Synaptic Package Manager.
Now when I run
./configure command it gives me the following error.
checking for APPLET... configure: error: Package requirements (libpanelapplet-2.0) were >not met:
No package 'libpanelapplet-2.0' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables APPLET_CFLAGS and APPLET_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Where can I find the path for PKG_CONFIG_PATH?
This is what I have done so far:
I've installed libxml-parser-perl, libgnomeui-dev, gettext, intltool according to the post Installing IP messenger on Ubuntu linux but could not find the package libpanel-applet2-dev.
Then I even tried to install libpanelappletmm-2.6-dev and libpanelappletmm-2.6-1c2 but could not find this packages
but still get the same error
configure: error: Package requirements (libpanelapplet-2.0) were not met
There are lot of problems with g2ipmsg in ubuntu, specially there are lot of problems during file transfer.
Instead of installing Ip messanger using wine or g2ipmsg use Iptux.
Its perfectly compatible with Ip Messanger.
sudo apt-get install iptux
