I've been installing all the required dependencies for gpointing-device-settings which I don't have (figuring out by running ./configure and seeing what causes errors). But I've gotten to an error that I have not been able to get past.
- install gnome-settings-daemon but that doesn't stop the error
sudo apt-get install gnome-settings-daemon
and installing the .deb file which results in more dependency issues (which I get even though they are installed)
- add path of gnome-settings-daemon to PATH and to PKG_CONFIG_PATH
added the following to .profile
export PATH="/usr/lib:$PATH" export PATH="$HOME/usr/lib:$PATH" PATH="/usr/lib:$PATH" PATH="$HOME/usr/lib:$PATH"
have extra just in case (I'm a beginner and just wanted to make sure that I wasn't doing it wrong so I put in every combination)
