As you see from the subject, I'm trying to install gnucash 2.4.2 on a VM of Mint 9 fluxbox.
I downloaded the tarball, moved it over to /usr/lib/ where I understand these sorts of things are supposed to go, decompressed it to make /usr/lib/gnucash-2.4.2/ cd into that directory and ran "sudo ./configure" (without the quotes) because I think (though I'm not sure) that is how one is supposed to install it.
I keep getting an error about GLIB is not installed, but checking synaptic it looks like I have "libglib2.0-0" version 2.24.1 installed.
The exact error reads as follows (this is output following the ./configure command and the script preforming a bunch of other checks) :
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.12.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
*** GLIB >= 2.12 is required to build Gnucash; please make sure you have the
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLIB is
*** always available at ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/glib/.
I'd like to attach the 'config.log' document but the forum doesn't want me to upload a .log or .txt attachment, and it is a long file so I didn't want to copy it into the main body of this text. If that file is needed, let me know how I should attach the file. Anything else let me know.
