Hi Jeff,

Thank you for your reply.

I am running Snapshot version of Zenwalk which has goocanvas 2.0 installed.

I suspect problem with pygoocanvas which was last compiled on Zenwalk 6.6 about one year ago.

But when I try to compile, pygoocanvas, configure does not detect goocanvas even though it is installed, and gives the following log:

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PYGOOCANVAS_CFLAGS
and PYGOOCANVAS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
build() failed.


Can you please tell me what should I do to correct this?

I suspect it's the fact that zenwalk provides a 2 years old version of goocanvas (0.15 instead of 1.0 and newer)...
