Please note that I am very new to linux.
I tried to install the new version of GIMP, 2.6, today but I am having
some problems with the installation. I had to get a couple of packages
(gcc and make) to install then it told me that I Had to install babl
as well. I did so but the error keeps returning:
checking for BABL... configure: error: Package requirements (babl >=
0.0.22) were not met:
No package 'babl' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BABL_CFLAGS
and BABL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Does anyone know how to fix this error? It mentions something about
changing the pkg-config man page - but what and where is that?
Thanks for the help
