Ubuntu – How to install libraries


When I was installing the application (tracker-0.10.24) I've got this message:

Package requirements (glib-2.0     >= 2.26.0
                      gobject-2.0  >= 2.26.0
                      gio-unix-2.0 >= 2.26.0
                      dbus-1       >= 1.3.1
                      dbus-glib-1  >= 0.82) were not met:

No package 'dbus-1' found
No package 'dbus-glib-1' found

I can go to ubuntu packages and install them step by step, but I think here's should be more convenient way. How to install all these libraries?

Best Answer

Presumably this is an error from a configure script?

The error is referring to pkg-config package files. These do not correspond one-to-one with Ubuntu/Debian package names (since they are not Debian or Ubuntu specific).

In this particular case, the dbus-1.pc file is found in the libdbus-1-dev Ubuntu package, and dbus-glib-1.pc is found in the libdbus-glib-1-dev Ubuntu package. Installing those two should satisfy the dependencies of that configure script check.
