configure: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! Missing dep: appstream-glib >= 0.7.7

Hi all,

The latest git pull of 2.99 won't build.  It gives me the error

"configure: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! Missing dep: appstream-glib >= 0.7.7"

Ah, but I have appstream-glib >0.7.7 installed; built it from source and installed it into the prefix I use for gimp.

Any ideas?

Last night I discovered this (yet another) new dependency required to compile GIMP. I'm still trying to compile it as my distro only has a 0.5 version of the library. I have no idea why it is needed. When I tried to compile it I find it tries to ocmpile with support for RPM packaging. I don't use RPM packaging on my machine.

Richard, I would have said that you need to installed the -dev package of libappstream-glib installed on your machine except you buit-it yourself. I'm trying to compile it myself but it isn't finding the yaml library even though it is installed. If I get my compile to work I can dig in to the problem.

Cheers!

Kevin.

Perhaps see https://linux.die.net/man/1/pkg-config - set PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Any ideas?

Just where is your appstream-glib.pc ?

You might have to alter your share/config.site if you use that, or your search path.

I think it just needed the rpm stuff for some reason.  I installed rpm (don't use it either).
I had to install a more recent gobject-introspection to get the more recent appstream-glib to build.  And yes, there's a bug with yaml and the meson build system.  see:

https://github.com/ximion/appstream/issues/146

I would add that you need a recent version of meson to get it to build properly too.

I love dependency problems.

Indeed. :P

This is the worse case of dependency problems for GIMP I have had to deal with in quite a while. I need to compile appstream-glib which needed about three other -dev packages. I then hit the yaml issue which required the newer glib-introspection program. Trying to compile that required some other package I don't have. About this point I gave up on trying to build git master branch of GIMP.

If/when I update my distro to Mint 19 I'll try again.

Cheers!

Kevin.

On my system i edited configure to require 0.7.6 (which i have) and it worked.

Check there's a .pc file in $PREFIX/usr/lib/pkgconfig/ and also that the directory containing it is in your PKG_PATH.

If so, check config.log to see what went wrong...

I thought about seeing if I could just modify configure to expect an older version of the appstream-glib library. The version available for my distro is 0.5 something which I thought might be too old. I already modified configure to expect older versions of two other dependencies to save me having to build newer versions.

Cheers!
