Thread: Can't find the readline-common dependency necessary for building Sawfish

    Default Can't find the readline-common dependency necessary for building Sawfish

    I need readline-common prior to building the Sawfish window manager.
    I've been looking for it in YaST2 - Install/Remove Software and also with zypper install readline-common.
    I am using opensuse 12.1 x86_64.
    Where can I find it?

    Thanks in advance/

    I would of course use software.opensuse.org: Search
    I searched with "readline" and it gives some results. I do not know if that what you want is amongst it.

    readline-common is a debian package name, packages have often not
    exactly the same name in different Linux distributions. The equivalent
    in openSUSE is as far as I remember libreadline6, the equivalent to
    readline-common-dev is readline-devel. If you build a software you need
    the -devel package.

    Try searching the software search with 'pango' and see what comes up -
    I'll bet you find something that is relevant.

    Why don't you simply use the already compiled sawfish
