Topic: [SOLVED] Cannot build gparted 1.0.0 on Linux Mint
I'm trying to build v1.0.0 from source and I'm stuck in configure with error:
checking for ped_device_read in -lparted... no configure: error: *** libparted not found.
I am on linux mint cinnamon machine and libparted2 v3.2 is installed, but seems that configure script doesn't find it. I tried to symlink libparted.so.2 to libparted.so, but then configure throws this error:
checking for libparted >= 2.2 (querying pkg-config)... not found checking for libparted >= 2.2 (querying libparted)... configure: error: *** Error querying libparted version. Check config.log for details.
which isn't right because libparted version is >2.2
