Software :: Dependency - Set The GTK_CFLAGS And GTK_LIBS Environment Variables To Avoid The Need To Call Pkg-config

I'm trying to install ettercap from source on my clearos box (centos based) and I'm running into an issue with a GTK dependency. When I run ./configure for ettercap, it tells me I need to install GTK, Pango, or ATK. But, I've installed them all with yum, and the -devel versions of them too. For example I did "yum install gtk+" and "yum install gtk+-devel" for GTK, Pango, and ATK.

But even though I installed all these dependencies, I'm still getting this error. I'm thinking the problem is that it's looking for gtk, atk, or pango in the wrong place. A copy of the relevant error section produced by running ./configure is below:


Alternatively you may set the GTK_CFLAGS and GTK_LIBS environment variables to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for

Red Hat :: Call CGI W/POST Variables From Shell?
I've got a CGI that I'm trying to debug. Apache gives me an ambiguous 500 error; it would be nice to see the raw output via the shell. I've got the POST request w/headers as follows. What's the best way to troubleshoot this?

General :: Environment Variables Not Being Set Correctly?
he $g09root is picked up ( in both the csh and the bash), but not the $GV_DIR or the $GAUSS_SCRDIR. I guess it's some stupid error, but it is highly frustrating.Here is the .profile file:Quote:

# add your own one (see /usr/share/locale/locale.alias for more codes)

Software :: Set Environment Variables That Don't Need Terminal ?
I've added an export command to /etc/profile, but the environment variables don't show up when not using a terminal.

For example: when I add:


To my /etc/profile (then open a new terminal so it registers) and run a graphical program from that terminal, the graphical program can see see the environment variable A.

However if I add the export command to my /etc/profile, then reboot so everything registers, then run that same graphical program from a menu (such as Applications->Accessories->Myprogram), it can't see the environment variable.

What I'm trying to say is basically, my environment variables only show up if I run a program in a shell. Is there a way to set environment variables that will show even without a shell?

Fedora :: Script Unable To Set Environment Variables
I've never done much scripting myself and I'm quite unused to the bash as well, but anyway, Here's my problem.

I've a script which is supposed to set some environment variables, using export. However, if I check those variables using echo, they appear not to be set (they are empty). If I set the same variables manually, everything is fine, of course, but I don't want to set them each time manually.

Slackware :: SU Command - Environment Variables Missing
I've just noticed something odd with 'su'. When you run 'su' with both the '-' (aka -l) and -c command options like this: "su -l user -c command" it doesn't appear to run /etc/profile before running the specified command even though the -l option is specified. If you run "su -l user" without the -c it does run /etc/profile.

Now, on other linux such as fedora it works as expected and runs both /etc/profile followed by the command specified on the '-c'. I'm fairly sure it used to work this way on Slackware (and every other UNIX I've ever used) too. "su -l root -c env" is a good way to see, as you'll find most the environment variables are missing.

Software :: Dchroot Environment Variables Not Consistent?
I've created a 32-bit chroot on my AMD64 installation. It works pretty well when I just type 'dchroot' but if I try to execute a 32-bit program from 64-bit land using 'dchroot <command>', the environment variables are all screwed up. I know I can use -d or --preserve-environment to keep my 64-bit environment but I don't want to do that because I want my PATH to change when I go into 32-bit land. Here's an example of what I am talking about:

me@box:~$ dchroot "echo $PATH"
I: [x86 chroot] Running command: ?echo $PATH?

Ubuntu :: Update Environment Variables Forever?
I've created a new environment variable and updated another one (PATH). I just want to save this changes once after reboot and forever. This is because I want to run a program (tecplot) just typing 'tec360' in the command line. If I create those new variable ( TEC_360_2008=/usr/tec360_2008 ) and update the PATH variable ( export PATH=$PATH:$TEC_360_2008/bin ) then bash detect the command 'tec360' and it runs my program. The problem is that this changes are not saved after rebooting.

According to the manual, I have to update the .bash_profile in my home directory but I don't have this file in this directory (neither in other directory). I only have .bash_history, .bash_logout and .bashrc in the home directory. I have updated .bashrc (typing . ./.bashrc) but it is not working.

General :: Setting (permenant) Environment Variables In 10.0.4
I am running an application which requires setting environment variables to be set.At the moment, the way I am achieving this is by exporting the EV at the command line, and then running the app from the command line.I want to be able to run the app from my menu (it is already a menu item after I installed it).How may I set the env var so that it is always available, so I can just run the app from the menu instead of from the CLI?

Ubuntu :: Setting Environment Variables In Server 10.04
I always have to google about setting environment path variables when I install new software. My basic problem is that I dont know whether these variables need to be set globally or not. I have read a number of mails/tutorials which say that Environment variables should be set by simply doing an export EDITOR=nano export EDITOR

additionally I have read that it should be written into /etc/bash.bashrc

But are these really global variables or local? I want the variables to be set
even after I have logged out.

so I could also write the variable here...


or here
