    KDevelop + Allegro... not working

    I've just installed the latest stable version of Allegro (4.0.9 i believe), using the 'ol tarball (./configure, make, make install).

    Since I'm running Mandrake 9.0, I moved the libs and includes from /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/include to /usr/lib and /usr/include, since thats where Mandrake likes them.

    I also added /usr/lib to /etc/ (which may not have been necessary), and ran ldconfig.

    BUT in KDevelop, compiling fails because of dozens of undefined references. It can't find the allegro files for some reason.

    Is there a compiling option I should add, or a file I need to edit?

    Did you try to add allegro to the linking option?
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    running allegro-config --libs (and --shared)gives me:
    -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-export-dynamic -lalleg-4.0.2 -lalleg_unsharable

    allegro-config --cflags (and --cppflags)gives me:

    allegro-config --static gives:
    -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-export-dynamic -lalleg -lm -lpthread -lXxf86dga -lXxf86vm -lXext -lX11 -ldl

    allegro-config --env gives:
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib
    export LIBRARY_PATH=$LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib
    export C_INCLUDE_PATH=$C_INCLUDE_PATH:/usr/include
    export OBJC_INCLUDE_PATH=$OBJC_INCLUDE_PATH:/usr/include

    I read on the Allegro mailing list that I need to add some of those lines to the compiler options in KDevelop.. and well I've tried to no avail. I tried what I thought would be correct, and a few other things that I think might have been correct, but none worked. I've also seen people adding "allegro-config --libs" to the linker options, to no avail for me.

    Thanks for the reply!
