    further E woes, regarding freetype this time.

    The configure script in enlightenment 0.16.5 stops giving the following.

    ERROR: Enlightenment needs a system with libttf.so (TrueType Font Library)
    You can obtain it from:
    ftp://ftp.enlightenment.org/pub/enlightenment/
    ftp://www.rasterman.com/pub/enlightenment/
    You can also obtain it from:
    http://www.freetype.org/
    You can obtain some truetype fonts from:
    http://voyager.cns.ohiou.edu/~sadkin.../font_archive/
    configure: error: Fatal Error: no FreeType detected.
    This is in Slackware 9 which, i'm sure, installs Freetype2 by default. Anyone got any ideas as to what I should do - the last time i compiled and installed freetype2, thinking it wasn't there, It messed up X, and i'm loathe to do so again without good reason or explanation.

    thanks,
    Sean

    Go to /var/log/packages, and check to see if it is installed. Also make sure you run configure as a user, not as root

    hmm, no sign of freetype in /var/log/packages.
