To compile php-gtk, you need the following packages:
sudo aptitude install php5-dev php5-gd libgtk2.0-dev libglade2-dev build-essentials
When trying to use the
buildconf.sh, you might encounter the following error:
~/php-gtk-2.0.1$ ./buildconf Configuring for: PHP Api Version: 20041225 Zend Module Api No: 20060613 Zend Extension Api No: 220060519 rebuilding aclocal.m4 rebuilding configure configure.in:77: warning: LTOPTIONS_VERSION is m4_require'd but not m4_defun'd aclocal.m4:2912: LT_INIT is expanded from… aclocal.m4:2947: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is expanded from… configure.in:77: the top level configure.in:77: warning: LTSUGAR_VERSION is m4_require'd but not m4_defun'd configure.in:77: warning: LTVERSION_VERSION is m4_require'd but not m4_defun'd configure.in:77: warning: LTOBSOLETE_VERSION is m4_require'd but not m4_defun'd configure:12242: error: possibly undefined macro: m4_ifval If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow. See the Autoconf documentation. configure:15849: error: possibly undefined macro: _LT_SET_OPTIONS configure:15849: error: possibly undefined macro: LT_INIT make: *** [configure] Error 1 make: *** [all] Error 2
which leaves the
configure-script in a broken state. The problem is that the newer
libtool.m4 has been split into
different files. To make it work, you have to concatenate the different files back into the libtool.
$ cd /usr/share/aclocal $ sudo cp libtool.m4 libtool.m4~backup $ sudo chmod 777 libtool.m4 $ sudo cat lt~obsolete.m4 ltoptions.m4 ltsugar.m4 ltversion.m4 >>libtool.m4 $ sudo chmod 644 libtool.m4
After that, unpack a clean
php-gtk source and try again.
~/php-gtk-2.0.1$ ./buildconf ~/php-gtk-2.0.1$ ./configure ~/php-gtk-2.0.1$ make ~/php-gtk-2.0.1$ sudo make install
After enabling the new extension in the
php.ini, you should be able to use the Gtk2-Frontend for PEAR.
sudo pear install --alldeps pear/PEAR#gtk2installer
You can now run the graphical installer using the following command:
sudo pear -G
