    trouble installing a package..........

    hey guys,
    i'm getting an errorwhen trying to install evolution on slackware 10.

    this is the error;
    checking for libgtkhtml-3.1... Package libgtkhtml-3.1 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgtkhtml-3.1.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'libgtkhtml-3.1' found

    configure: error: Library requirements (libgtkhtml-3.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

    i located the libgtkhtml file and it's in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libgtkhtml-3.1 and /usr/local/include/

    i tried setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH by typing on the command line PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ and

    am i leaving something out in setting the correct path?
    Can someone help me correct this error?

    Only thing you need is:

    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

    then run ./configure again, and it should work.

    it's not going to change it to that, it'll just add that to the path, right?

    Actually, it'll change to that, if you want to add it, you can do this:

    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig

    and that'll add to the path.

    Hope that helps!
