I was trying to submit gedit patches. So i downloaded the gedit source
When i ran autogen.sh in the dir, i got the following error:
Checking for required M4 macros...
gnome-compiler-flags.m4 not found
libtool.m4 not found
glib-gettext.m4 not found
intltool.m4 not found
pkg.m4 not found
Checking for forbidden M4 macros...
***Error***: some autoconf macros required to build gedit
were not found in your aclocal path, or some forbidden
macros were found. Perhaps you need to adjust your
auto-apt shows me that these files are indeed present
What do i need to set to get gedit to compile?
In the Ubuntu IRC channel i was suggest to use the Ubuntu source package
and NOT build from CVS.
Is it true that Ubuntu is particularly not suitable for development?
If so, what distro would you recommend for developers?
