Hi all,

two weeks ago I tried to get my 'new' Canon IP4600 to work, so I took the ebuild from here and put it in '/usr/local/portage/net-print/cnijfilter'. I also copied the provided patches on my machine. But it does not merge:


checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.6.0... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
configure: error: Cannot find GTK: Is gtk-config in path?
 * ERROR: net-print/cnijfilter-3.00-r6::lokal failed (compile phase):
 *   Error: printui/ failed
 * Call stack:
 *, line   93:  Called src_compile

 *           ./ --datadir=${_datadir} --program-suffix=${_pr} || die "Error: printui/ failed";

 * the complete build log and the output of `emerge -pqv '=net-print/cnijfilter-3.00-r6::lokal'`.
 * The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/net-print/cnijfilter-3.00-r6/temp/build.log'.
 * The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/net-print/cnijfilter-3.00-r6/temp/environment'.
 * Working directory: '/var/tmp/portage/net-print/cnijfilter-3.00-r6/work/cnijfilter-3.00/ip4600/printui'
 * S: '/var/tmp/portage/net-print/cnijfilter-3.00-r6/work/cnijfilter-3.00'

OK, it wants gtk+ in a version >= 2.6.0. I have on my system:

    selected: 2.24.17 3.4.4

x11-libs/gtk+-3.4.4 is higher than 2.6.0, isn't it? And the latest gtk+-2-version on portage is gtk+-2.24.20.

I posted my problem on but did not receive an answer. Could you help me out? My knowledge is some kind of limited but I'd like to learn to solve my problems :)
