Avant Window Navigator -

AWN will not "configure", i keep getting the following output in my terminal and I have no clue how to fix it(Linux n00b).

checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.7... yes
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.8.0... yes (version 2.12.13)
checking for AWN... configure: error: Package requirements ( glib-2.0 gobject-2.0 gtk+-2.0 gdk-2.0 libwnck-1.0 gnome-desktop-2.0 libgnome-2.0 gnome-vfs-2.0 gconf-2.0 x11 xproto dbus-glib-1 libglade-2.0 xdamage xcomposite xrender) were not met:

No package 'libwnck-1.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables AWN_CFLAGS
and AWN_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
When i do a "locate" on the library i find the following:

locate libwnck
When i navigate to /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 the files are there, but if i navigate to the "pkgconfig" folder in either lib or lib64, i find no .pc files.

Anyone have any suggestions on what i can do to get this application installed? I appreciate your help everyone!

I'm sure a member has already made an RPM of this. Try a search of the forum for 'AWN RPM'
