I have recently installed SUSE tumbleweed XFCE on my computer. I am attempting to build a couple XFCE plugins from a different distro which is ubuntu based as I quite like them.
I am encountering some interesting errors in the attempt.
The first error is from C++:
CMake Deprecation Warning at CMakeLists.txt:1 (cmake_minimum_required):
Compatibility with CMake < 2.8.12 will be removed from a future version of
Update the VERSION argument <min> value or use a ...<max> suffix to tell
CMake that the project does not need compatibility with older versions.
-- Checking for module 'exo-2>=0.11'
-- Package 'exo-2', required by 'virtual:world', not found
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:556 (message):
A required package was not found
Call Stack (most recent call first):
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
I get this error from running the command
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
This makes it look like I do not have exo-2 installed.
If I go into YaST I see:
So I do not understand why it says that exo is not installed.
This is the block of pkg checks in my CMakeLists file:
pkg_check_modules(GTK3 REQUIRED gtk+-3.0>=3.22)
pkg_check_modules(exo REQUIRED exo-2>=0.11)
pkg_check_modules(garcon REQUIRED garcon-1)
pkg_check_modules(libxfce4panel REQUIRED libxfce4panel-2.0-4>=4.11)
pkg_check_modules(libxfce4ui REQUIRED libxfce4ui-2>=4.11)
pkg_check_modules(libxfce4util REQUIRED libxfce4util-1.0>=4.11)
Now funnily enough none of these actually worked. I had to use
sudo zypper install gtk3-devel
to get the gtk line to work, and neither YaST nor the SUSE package web page said that gtk3-devel even existed. Are there more secret packages I need to install? If I plug the search term for each of these into YaST I get a positive confirmation that the package is installed. Because I apparently have all these packaged if I search for their name from before REQUIRED, I tried changing the part after REQUIRED to match what YaST was spitting out but no dice.
Does anyone know how I can get this working? It’s quite frustrating that I have everything in YaST but none of it works.
