error installing xmms on ubuntu 12.04-Collection of common programming errors

I want to install XMMS media player on UBUNTU 12.04. I’m following instructions, but when type ./configure I receive message bellow:

* The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to glib-config. configure: error: GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed – please install first *

I installed libglib2.0-dev, but still continue to receive this message. What have to do and where to find this glib-configv script ?

  1. XMMS requires glib version 1.2 series libraries (2.0 series will not work). You can get sufficiently new version of that from levien’s PPA:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:levien/thbio
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libglib1.2-dev libgtk1.2-dev

    But even then you’ll likely run into problems with undefined references in libgdk 1.2.
