icewm - dependence

Reported by: Oliver Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Errata Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords: icewm



I think, there is a dependence error for icewm. I get a compile-error, that xft is not found. After installing the attached script, everything is fine.

Kind regards, Oliver

Xorg Window System is dependency of IceWM, and libXft is part of Xorg Libraries.

I think you have failed to follow the dependencies in the book: The first is 'X Window System' which points to 'X Window System Environment' where we list the components of Xorg.

The tenth item there is Xorg Libraries, On that page, as the 19th item, is libXft-2.3.1.tar.bz2.

You need to build the whole of Xorg, of which libXft is just one part, Pedantically, there are alternatives to twm and xterm, but for a first-time-build you should follow the book, and test startx before going any further.
