I already had edited _/etc/ld.so.conf_ and ran _ldconfig_ as suggested in the message. It also suggests that I remove version GTK+ 2.2.1, which I never installed, and to the best of my knowlege, is not on my system.I've been trying to upgrade from GIMP 1.2.3 that was installed with RH9 to GIMP 1.3.23. It won't configure, and I get the following...[EMAIL PROTECTED] gimp-1.3.23]# ./configure ......>>>>> checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/bin/pkg-config checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.2.2... *** 'pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0' returned 2.2.4, but GTK+ (2.2.1) *** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best *** to remove the old version of GTK+. You may also be able to fix the error *** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing *** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is *** required on your system. *** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH *** to point to the correct configuration files no configure: error: Test for GTK+ failed. See the file 'INSTALL' for help. I installed GTK 2.2.4 and followed all the other installation instructions. When I check the version of GTK+ with Synaptic, it shows _GTK2 - version 2.2.1-4_ and not 2.2.4. Is this where the problem is coming from. Any ideas??Yes, that's where your problem is coming from. While pkg-config locates the new version, your linker takes the library from /usr/lib. The error message suggests the possible solutions. You can modify the linker behaviour by adjusting your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable or by editing /etc/ld.so.conf.
Synaptics says that I have _GTK2 - version 2.2.1-4_ and not _GTK+2.2.4_.
Could this be the problem??
