gtk installation problems configure: error: X development libraries not

Is there anything in /usr/include/X11?

As the message says, you don't have the X11 development environment installed.

I suggest you dig out the Xcode installer.

What are you trying to build anyway, most open source code that does anything with shared libraries collapses in a heap when trying to compile on Darwin.

I suggest you look at Fink or similar for patches to build code on Darwin.

Hi porter, could you please give me a bit more information on what I should do as I'm absolutely stupid on this...

I installed fink but like, it couldn't install anything, whatever I tried to install it just gave me thousands of compiling errors... So I gave up on fink, but still got the same problem of not having x11 development environment... where can i find it???

Thanks so much for your timeSmilie

In Jaguar it was a completely separate product.

Have you tried Configuring and Running X11 Applications on Mac OS X
