Thread: KSnapshot

  1. #1



    I downloaded KSnapshot and tried to compile it, but all I get is:

    black666@starbase:~/downloads/tarballs/ksnapshot> ./configure

    My $PATH is:

    I can't think of a way that some $PATH entries or gcc components are missing, because I've compiled other progs before KSnapshot (successfully).

    Would be great if someone can give me a hint.

    checking for a C++-Compiler...
    checking for g++... no
    In other words, install g++ and you should be fine. gcc will compile c code, but you need g++ for c++ code.

    Re: KSnapshot

    Thnx for help.
    First I couldn't find a package called something like g++ and the Suse Support Database didn't know it either. But after searching for C++ I found a package with a C++ compiler called "gpp" and that did it....somewhat tricky.

    And after managing some QT problems too (since I started compiling my own progs I have installed so many libs and files ) I'm now stuck with this message:

    checking for QT... libraries /usr/lib/qt3/lib, headers /usr/lib/qt3/include
    checking if Qt compiles without flags... no
    checking for moc... ./configure: test: /usr/lib/qt3/bin: binary operator expected
    ./configure: test: too many arguments
    checking for rpath... yes
    checking for bool... yes
    checking for KDE... will be installed in /usr/local/kde
    checking for extra includes... no
    checking for extra libs... no
    checking for KDE paths... problems
    configure: error: configure can not run a little KDE program to test the environment.
    Look at config.log for details. If you are not able to fix this, please contact Stephan Kulow <>

    The last lines of config.log are the following:

    configure:2877: checking for extra includes
    configure:2904: checking for extra libs
    configure:2973: checking for KDE paths

    conftest.C:4: kapp.h: No such file or directory

    Maybe it's that kapp.h file. But I don't know where to get it ???
