    Problems installing gtk

    *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.12.12, but GLIB (2.12.11)
    *** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
    *** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
    *** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
    *** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
    *** required on your system.
    *** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    *** to point to the correct configuration files
    configure: error:
    *** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
    *** GLIB is always available from If GLIB is installed
    *** but not in the same location as pkg-config add the location of the file
    *** glib-2.0.pc to the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH.

    It's telling you that some system info is screwed up. pkg-config just reads information files. The information files say that the most recent glib version you have is 2.12.12. GTK does its own checking, though, and found version 2.12.11, so it complains.

    You should check your installation of glib.

    Then the GTK config isn't finding it for some reason. Did you install it in some non-standard location? There should be a switch for the configure script to force it to look in a specific directory for the GLIB installation. Try using that.
