? Please Help me install Qingy.
I'll have a look at this. At first glance I would say you miss some package on your machine...
You simply need to install some more packages. I just added an
Ubuntu-specific section at
Would love to try out Qingy, which looks like a pretty, lightweight Xdm replacement. Right now, on Ubuntu 6.06, I'm unable to compile Qingy. When running ./configure, I get the following error:
checking for pkg-config... no
checking for DIRECTFB... configure: error:
*** DirectFB 0.9.18 or newer is required. The latest version
*** of DirectFB is available from http://www.directfb.org/.
I do have version 0.9.22 of all available directfb packages installed:
qingy-0.9.1$ aptitude search directfb
i libdirectfb-0.9-22 - frame buffer graphics library
i libdirectfb-bin - binaries for libdirectfb
i libdirectfb-dev - frame buffer graphics library, development
i libdirectfb-extra - extra image/video providers for libdirectf
qingy-0.9.1$ aptitude show libdirectfb-0.9-22
Automatically installed: no
BTW, here are the additional packages I needed to install from Ubuntu's repos to get this far:
Scrub that - I just installed pkg-config and now ./configure runs properly.
So... if you would be happy to update your FAQ section and add a heading for Ubuntu 6.06, the required packages (for full capability) are:
Done, thanks for the info!
Me again! :-)
Eek... two problems with the above list:
1. openssl-dev doesn't exist (no idea where I got that from)
2. only libdirectfb-dev is required of the directfb packages (it auto-installs the current version of libdirectfb as a dependency and the -bin and -extra packages are not required at all)
Many thanks for putting this up, BTW :-)
Updated info, thank you...
I am not 100% sure, but one may need libdirectfb-extra if the theme makes use of true type font.
Checked (on a Debian box) by temporary moving the libidirectfbfont_ft2.so file (qingy-directFB could not start), that is shipped for Ubuntu in the libdirectfb-extra package according to Ubuntu web site:
updated info again :-)
