Greg, can you provide us with the contents of config.log. This will
give us a little more insight into why the configure script isn't
finding your fltk libraries.

Comment 4 Greg Watson (linuxkrn) 2003-10-15 19:22:08 UTC
It appears that it is looking for xft, however I had to remove xft because
x11-base/xfree-4.3.0-r2 blocks it.

[blocks B     ] >=x11-base/xfree-4.3.0-r2 (from pkg x11-libs/xft-2.0.1-r2)
[ebuild  N    ] x11-libs/xft-2.0.1-r2

Noting that it was looking for xft libs and I had to remove that for 4.3.0,
I removed it from my USE var and rebuilt both fltk and alsamixergui.  It
works great now.

Not sure if there was, but maybe there should be, a note when upgrading to
4.3.0 that xft isn't needed and to rebuild apps that used it.  Also to remove
XFT from USE.

Maybe I was a bit quick to mark it as resolved.  No I have no text.

Also get this error:
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file

Will attach a screenshot

There is supposed to be text across th top, and under each mixer channel.

xft is now included in xfree, try to remerge xfree
Comment 8 Heinrich Wendel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-12-01 06:12:44 UTC
does it work?
Comment 9 Greg Watson (linuxkrn) 2003-12-04 21:25:54 UTC
I've rebuilt world and things seem to work now.  Hard to say what it was, but it works now.
