I am trying to install pyxfce on Xubuntu 11.10 (XFCE 4.8)
While running ./configure the error returns:
checking for libxfcegui4-1.0 >= 4.3.90... not found *** The required package libxfcegui4-1.0 was not found on your system. *** Please install libxfcegui4-1.0 (atleast version 4.3.90) or adjust *** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you *** installed the package in a nonstandard prefix so that *** pkg-config is able to find it.
I first made sure the package was installed with:
sudo apt-get install libxfcegui*
Then I found out where all the pkgconfig paths are:
find /usr -name "pkgconfig"
Then I passed the output to the path variable and exported it:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/share/pkgconfig/:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkgconfig/:/usr/lib/pkgconfig/ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH
Running ./configure again however, didn't go any better.
What am I missing here?

I merely have:
benjamin@xubuntu:~$ find /usr -name "*.pc" | grep libxfce /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libxfce4util-1.0.pc
OK, somehow the following did not install the libxfcegui4 series:
sudo apt-get install libxfce*
Now I installed it and ./configuration is asking for libxfce4menu-0.1, which apt-cache search does not return
After some research it appears libxfce4menu-0.1 is deprecated and replaced by libxfce4utils and garcon. Will the installation of pyxfce work at all then?

Hello, I also tried and have the same problems.
