Previously I advised someone on how to upgrade to Rhythmbox to version 2.99.1 here. However they couldn't upgrade due to gobject-introspection-1.0 not being installed. I couldn't help them.
Now, with a brand new computer, I am getting the same problem as they had. here is the result ov
simon@simon-TS44HR:~/Downloads/rhythmbox-2.99.1$ ./configure checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... no checking for mawk... mawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... yes checking whether make supports nested variables... yes checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes checking for gobject-introspection... configure: error: gobject-introspection-1.0 is not installed
I tried to install gobject-introspection with the following
simon@simon-TS44HR:~/Downloads/rhythmbox-2.99.1$ sudo apt-get -f install gobject-introspection [sudo] password for simon: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done gobject-introspection is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
so I tried :
simon@simon-TS44HR:~/Downloads/rhythmbox-2.99.1$ sudo apt-get -f install gobject-introspection-1.0 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package gobject-introspection-1.0 E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'gobject-introspection-1.0'
I have not really got to grips with installing software properly, any help would be appreciated.
