I don't have libgnome-2.0 but I do have libgnome2-0.

As it was mentioned earlier, you probably can use debian package. If you actually prefer to compile it, you will need libgnome2-0-dev (or similar) and several other *development* packages.


deb-src sid main non-free contrib
deb-src sid/non-US main contrib non-free

to /etc/apt/sources.list (change the ro to your countrycode for a local mirror ;)

After that a

apt-get build-dep balsa

should install all compile-time depencies.
After that you can try to compile a tarball or cvs.



Indeed, this is the recommended way of doing it. If fact, this is how I compiled debs of Galeon and Mplayer (not trivial) for my Ubuntu installation at work. Unfortunately it didn't work for Balsa. Don't remeber exactly why... Circular dependencies? Different package names in Ubuntu? Something definetely didn't work as with Galeon and Mplayer.
