when attempting to install a gwibber package i get valac not found after doing a ./configure seen here: chris@chris-laptop:~/Downloads/gwibber-3.6.0$ ./configure checking whether make supports nested variables... yes 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... no checking for valac-0.16... no checking for valac... no configure: WARNING: No Vala compiler found. You will not be able to compile .vala source files. configure: error: "No valac compiler found."

any help would be appreciated im on ubuntu 16.04 LTS. ive tried a couple of things i found online and it appears vala is installed

  • "appears" how, exactly? what does apt policy valac say? how about valac --version? – steeldriver Aug 6 '17 at 0:48
