Sorry if im posting this in the wrong forum or even the wrong message boards (i couldnt seem to find a message board for the goodies project). im trying to install the Volstatus Icon from the xfce goodies project, and im having problems. I do the ./configure and everything seems to go fine, but when i issue the make command it exits with an error code, something like:
"/usr/lib/libhal-storage.la: no such file or directory"
Im pretty sure im getting this error because i dont have all the required libraries installed. Of course im a bit of a newbie to Linux so the list posted on the website is like greek to me. Here's the list:
gtk 2.10.0 - I have this one installed already.
libxfce4util 4.4.0 - i think this one is libxfce4util4 right?
libxfcegui4 4.4.0 - i think this one is libxfcegui4 right?
dbus-glib 0.70 - is this on libdbus-glib-1-dev?
hal-storage 0.5.7.1 - is this hal-storage1?
exo-hal 0.3.2 (compiled with HAL support) - I have no clue what this library is or where to get it, and what does "compiled with HAL support" mean?
a running system tray (e.g., systray plugin in xfce4-panel) - does this mean i just have to have a system tray running on a panel somewhere? or do i have to download some other plugin first?
ok, after doing some checking, im now convinced that my libraries are in order, which makes me wonder just what exactly the problem is.
why would i be missing this /usr/lib/libhal-storage.la file? and how do i fix it?
found the solution. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu and did "sudo apt-get install libexo-0.3-dev" before i ran the gui installer to install xfce4.4.1, after Xfce was reinstalled, the make ran with no problems.
