Re: GARNOME 2.22.0 Release Candidate (2.21.92) -- "real life"

Shouldn't the garnome installer be downloading and installing libpng and glitz packages itself?

Since neither of those were on my system.  I had to go and manually install them outside of the garnome installer.

Same is true for the "gettext" package.

This is the wrong fix.

cairo explicitly depends on pkg-config (see LIBDEPS), and usually there
at least has been a valid need to do so. Anyway, you just deliberately
used a systems executable, whereas the GARNOME provided ones are

Right, so libpng couldn't be found in your PKG_CONFIG_PATH. Most systems
are happy with the stuff set in Since your libpng lives in
a rather strange place, the easiest and IMHO best fix is, to simply
adjust PKG_CONFIG_PATH in and append your local dirs there.
