I'm trying to install libgcal, and when I run ./configure I get the following error:

configure: error: "* libxml2 not found! You need it to build Library gcalendar. *"

I installed libxml2 from the repositories but it still gives me this error. Can someone please help?

You need to install libxml2-dev ; the compiler needs the header files for this library to compile code against it's API. This is true of most binary libraries (but not libraries for scripting languages like Python).

  • Of course! I haven't compiled in so long I forgot you usually need the dev package. Thanks! – xjonquilx Jun 18 '12 at 17:06
