I hope you folks have a sense of humor....I just "upgraded" to Ubuntu 10.10 which provides Gtkpod 1.0

So, since it doesn't provide and alphabetic order for the iPod Playlists....I figured I'd try and upgrade to at least Gtkpod 2.0 (don't start laughing too hard).

Here's the error message I got...

configure: error: *** No package 'gdl-1.0' found


How do fix this as I have no idea where to get the gdl package.

Thank you.

A bit difficult to assist from inside a Snow Leopard terminal... I downloaded the gtkpod-2.1.0 source, and check that's probably failing is the following line from configure.ac:
PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LIBGPOD, libgpod-1.0 >= 0.7.0,, [AC_MSG_FAILURE([*** $LIBG
    POD_PKG_ERRORS])])

I checked the package database online (http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/libgpod-common) and it looks like the version shipping with lucid is 0.7.93, so you should be all right. What troubles me is that if your gtkpod-0.99 is working, it means libgpod is installed... only thing I can think of is you haven't installed the -dev package.

Try to apt-get install libgpod-dev.

Don't give up just yet, looks like you're getting somewhere. 10.04 appears to have an "anjuta" package:

Try and install it. And anjuta-dev as the next step if this still fails

I just installed "anjuta" and anjuta-dev"

Here's the new error message;

configure: error: *** No package 'libgpod-1.0' found


No idea where or how to get libgpod-1.0 

Looked for it on the web but there's a lot of confusing stuff.

Thanks, everyone.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and for the life of me I can't figure out how
to install GtkPod 2.1.0!

For that matter I can NEVER figure out how to install any linux software
using the ./configure.....make....make install stuff.

I have GtkPod 0.99.14 installed.  Can the newer versions be installed on
Ubuntu 10.04?

First I downloaded 2.0.1

Here are the results of my unsuccessful attempt to install GtkPod 2.0.1

By the looks of it you haven't heeded any reported errors.

1. You tried to clone libgpod and it failed due to an already existing dir. Presumably the existing dir was up to date?

2. Configure for libgpod failed due to failed dependency of libplist. So running make is pointless and will give uncertain results.

3. Moving onto gtkpod's configure is not going to magically work. Surprisingly it is looking for libgpod and fails to find it. Running make is pointless.

So....

Before running make always ensure configure completed successfully, ie. No errors. There may be warnings but not errors. The last things configure does is generate make files. This is a good indicator that things are going correctly.

Getting configure to complete requires installing dev packages and running until success. For example find libplist-dev in the repos, install and rerun.

You are trying to compile libgpod. To get gtkpod 2 working only requires the release version of libgpod, which should be in ubuntus repos.

If you do compile and install libgpod then you need to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable. Google should explain how.

Hope that helps.

Tried to find or get libgpod-1.0 but Ubuntu 10.04 says the latest version is 8.X.X

See the error message during ./confgure below.


configure:12012: error: *** No package 'libgpod-1.0' found


Thanks for the help.  I'm going to quit.  This stuff is beyond me.  All I really want to do is get the iPod playlists as displayed in GtkPod in alphabetic order.







That may be true but the word 'package' is confusing you.

There exists a directory for the configuring of libraries under /usr/lib/pkgconfig. When libgpod dev is installed it will locate a file in the dir called libgpod-1.0. The configure script is looking for this file. This file is part of the libgpod 8.x.x ubuntu package, where the 8.x.x is the release version of the code while the 1.0 is the so number of the library.

So install the ubuntu package of libgpod and go from there.

Well, thanks for the help again.  On the new effort at installation GtkPod the current error message is;


configure: error: *** No package 'libanjuta-1.0' found

I have no idea where to get "libanjuta-1.0"....it's not in Synaptic.

Any ideas?

Lucid should have some version of libgpod-dev in its repo. It may be less than libgpod 1.0 so you'll have to compile it yourself. Considered upgrading lucid to maverick or natty?

I've considered Maverick & Natty but fear that I'll ruin my entire system and that I'll have to fix a lot of programs that get wrecked during the upgrade.  I'm famous for that.

What's your opinion?  I like the LTS of 10.04.

I do have a sense of humor and it can be a trial to get all the dependencies installed. Glad you are persevering.

If you look at the INSTALL file in the current head version of the codebase, rather than the 2.1.0 release version of it, I listed the des for both ubuntu and fedora.

If you cannot find the file then you can browse the code tree on sourceforge. Failing that, everytime you see a failed dependency message do 'apt cache search name' where name is for example 'gdl'. What should be shown in this example is the library 'libgdl-dev'. For building you mostly need the dev packages.

Alternatively, I think 10.10 is maverick. I did a ppl package of the 2.0.1 beta on launchpad. Try searching for it under my user 'phantomjinx'.

Hope this helps.
