Thanks for the advice.
I've checked ld.so.conf for /usr/local/lib...its already there/included.You have two options available to make the libraries "found" - first, you can add the path /usr/local/lib to the file specified above, and re-run ldconfig.
I have also done the following
[EMAIL PROTECTED] david]$ rpm -qa | grep libgtk
Of course this does not show the source file gtk-2.2.2 which was installed yesterday.
I have done this. But there is not a libgtk+. What is there are all libgtk-.Please check in /usr/local/lib to make sure that you see at least a libgtk+.so first, to make sure that this is indeed the problem. If not, we may have to dig a little further.
I am beginning to get the impression that the gtk required is not installed.
Also the gtk-2.2.2 installed yesterday is not a libgtk-2.2.2. Is this the problem??
I also used file search in other directories...there was no gtk in other directories.
Cheers and thanks for your help.

What is the "environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH"?? I have come across ldconfig before so I understand that-at least!!This error message comes from the fact that it appears you have gtk+ installed, but the libraries for it are not found. Those libraries are typically in /usr/local/lib after installing from source. You have two options available to make the libraries "found" - first, you can add the path /usr/local/lib to the file specified above, and re-run ldconfig. Then the libraries will be available to everyone, all the time. Or you can modify or create the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH (load library path) to include the directory /usr/local/lib. This is a temporary solution for you, for the current session. The favoured solution would be to add the directory to ld.so.conf. Please check in /usr/local/lib to make sure that you see at least a libgtk+.so first, to make sure that this is indeed the problem. If not, we may have to dig a little further. Cheers, Dave.
