checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for exo-2 >= 0.12.0... not found
*** The required package exo-2 was not found on your system.
*** Please install exo-2 (atleast version 0.12.0) or adjust

I am trying to compile Thunar 1.8.2.

I can not figure how to install exo-2.

Can someone help?

One Answer

Compiling from source code needs installation of special development packages (build dependencies).

At first you need to open Software & Updates application from GUI or by software-properties-gtk command. Then check [ ] Source Code on the first tab and confirm reloading software lists.

The Thunar is packaged in Ubuntu, so you can use the command below to get its build-dependencies:

sudo apt-get build-dep thunar

To install additional dependency use:

sudo apt-get install libatk-bridge2.0-dev

And then fix libraries as @Terrance suggested in comments:

sudo ldconfig
