Re: [Shotwell] shotwell for PCLinuxOS Mate

Hallo Jens,

It took some time, but today I started trying to compile shotwell
for my system.

This is where I got and do not know how to proceed:

The configure script complained that
was too old.
I tried to update from

The gexiv2 configure script complained that
was missing.

I obtained a copy from
and tried to compile that.

After solving the configure errors installing flex, bison
and the python gobjects libraries, the make program fails
with the following error messages
   GISCAN GLib-2.0.gir
/usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/glib-autocleanups.h:41: syntax error, unexpected typedef-name, expecting identifier or '(' in 'typedef GAsyncQueue *GAsyncQueue_autoptr;' at 'GAsyncQueue_autoptr' /usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/glib-autocleanups.h:42: syntax error, unexpected typedef-name, expecting identifier or '(' in 'typedef GBookmarkFile *GBookmarkFile_autoptr;' at 'GBookmarkFile_autoptr'

My glib-autocleanups.h looks identical to this one

Is there a way forward from here?
In any case seeing all the work that has been done to
get shotwell working has deeply impressed me.

Hello all,

Up to one and a half year ago, Shotwell
could be installed from the Synaptic repository
of my Linux distro, PCLinuxOS.
But then with version 0.23 the packager gave up.
I do still miss Shotwell for organizing my pictures.

I am not really a software engineer but did some
programming in my life.

Would it be feasible to get shotwell going on this

System:    Host: mrbrouwer Kernel: 4.4.27-pclos1 x86_64 (64 bit)
             Desktop: MATE 1.16.1  Distro: PCLinuxOS

I do have a spare computer to experiment a bit.
