I tried installing PCSXR from codeplex, since the software center version won't work for me. When I used the ./configure command, it eventually showed an error when searching for GTK2:

checking for GTK2... no
configure: error: *** libgtk2 not found!

But when I looked in the Synaptic Package Manager, it showed I did have the libgtk2 files. What could be wrong here?


You have to install the headers, contained in the -dev package.


sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev

You may need additional packages, check the dependency list, and install the relevant -dev packages (or sort it out one error at a time, lol)

  • Thanks! I already had that package, but using this command solved the problem either way. I'll try to install the other packages myself!
