En fait, je pense que c'est lib(64)gtk+2.0-devel qui fournit la dépendance
Thanks for your reply: Sorry for being so dumb, so, i should install libgtk+2.0-dev ? I checked with synaptic and indeed it's not installed. Trying to do that, i'm getting this error msg:
ibgtk2.0-dev: Hängt ab von: libpango1.0-dev aber es wird nicht installiert Hängt ab von: libcairo2-dev aber es wird nicht installiert Hängt ab von: libxinerama-dev aber es wird nicht installiert Hängt ab von: libxrandr-dev aber es wird nicht installiert Hängt ab von: libxcursor-dev aber es wird nicht installiert Hängt ab von: libxcomposite-dev aber es wird nicht installiert
(essentially Depends on: libpango1.0-dev but it won't be installed ecc. ecc)
So, what could be done there. Playing a bit with the display managers, and turning back to gdm (from gdm3 i had before, don't know why, may be by the Gnome installation) had a positive side effect, that the keycaps recognition of my PB keyboard now is absolutely correct
Since i realize it's you who wrote so positively about lxdm, may i ask you where i could find an good instruction how to install it (there's no deb package for squeeze) (?)
I have a distribution Mageia.
And I use their rpm packages.
With Mageia version 1, it works well.
There were some difficulties during the transition to systemd, with the development version (cauldron)
But now it's operational.
Mageia, esthetically looks cool Anyway, i'd stick with Debian for the powerpc support. Where could i find the rpm package? With alien i could try to "translate" it to deb and see what happens trying to install.
Thanks a lot anyway!
