[sane-devel] Problems compiling on RH9 with gimp2
Sun, 2 May 2004 14:56:22 +0200
I am trying to upgrade to gimp2. I installed everything from RPM's, except
sane and xsane.
On a clean RH9 installation (workstation), I had to install the following to
get GIMP2 working:
This should give sufficient version-information .
Sane-backends: no problems.
sane-frontends cannot be compiled; configure complains:
gimp.h not found.
The RPM from Gimp.org puts it in: /usr/include/gimp-2.0/libgimp/gimp.h
As a quick & dirty solution, I tried:
ln -s /usr/include/gimp-2.0/libgimp/ /usr/include/libgimp/
did not help: configure complains a lot about syntax-errors and othe includes
are not found (libgimpcolor/gimpcolor.h,
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0
/usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined reference to `FT_Get_BDF_Property'
This could be a fontconfig-problem, but all he RPM's installed without
Xsane, however compiles, but not as GIMP-plugin.
Starting xsane gives the license-agreement (which I accepted). Next is the
small window "Scanning for devices". Xsane hangs.
Next I commented out all the unused backends (i.e. everything but coolscan2
and umax). That worked.
Xsane still refuses to save as jpeg, tiff and others.
The gtk-errors may be a problem with incorrect RPM's that have nothing to do
with SANE. I'm looking into that. Still: the combination with gimp2 is not as
smooth as it should be.
