configre issues

I hope this is where this goes. i installed WindoMaker, got it running, now I am in the process of compiling my dockapps to install them, and already getting issues with openSuse, that I have not encountered in other distos’. be that as it may,

I installed the devel package now I am getting this error

./configure: line 5760: AC_FIND_XPM: command not found

how so I get it to see the libxpm.h ?

What makes you think you have to compile stuff ?
Use YaST - Software - Software Manager to search for the package that contains the missing file. But my 1st question is the most important
