I want to install gitg (0.3.3) and followed the steps explained here: How to install gitg 0.3.3 on Ubuntu 14.04?
...but I seem to miss dependencies, that are not in the repositories of the package manager.
configure: error: Package requirements ( gthread-2.0 >= 2.38 glib-2.0 >= 2.38 gobject-2.0 >= 2.38 gmodule-2.0 >= 2.38 gio-2.0 >= 2.38 gio-unix-2.0 >= 2.38 gobject-introspection-1.0 >= 0.10.1 libgit2-glib-1.0 >= 0.0.18 gtk+-3.0 >= 3.12.0 webkit2gtk-3.0 >= 2.2 gee-0.8 json-glib-1.0 ) were not met: No package 'gthread-2.0' found No package 'glib-2.0' found No package 'gobject-2.0' found No package 'gmodule-2.0' found No package 'gio-2.0' found No package 'gio-unix-2.0' found No package 'gobject-introspection-1.0' found No package 'libgit2-glib-1.0' found No package 'gtk+-3.0' found No package 'webkit2gtk-3.0' found No package 'gee-0.8' found No package 'json-glib-1.0' 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 LIBGITG_CFLAGS and LIBGITG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
I don't understand the comments at the end and also I am not sure, if there is a better way than google every single dependency and how to install it.
I've tried this with the first two (gthread, glib) and learned, that the names for the packages differ in the package manager - for instance glib2.0 is called libglib2.0 and from 11 possible packages with each different postfixes (e.g. -bin) there are 4 installed (I have version 2.0 but I need version 2.38 or greater, right?).
To find out, what packages for one dependency I need and that for all 12 dependencies is too komplex for me, "just to install a program".
Any help is appreciated.
