Thank you!

After installing pkg-config as suggested,

Looks like I'm down to the wire:


checking whether mlock is broken... no

checking for byte typedef... no

checking for ulong typedef... yes

checking for setcap... /sbin/setcap

checking for cap_set_proc in -lcap... no

checking for initscr in -lncursesw... no

checking for initscr in -lncurses... no

checking for tgetent in -lcurses... no

checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... no

checking for tgetent in -ltermlib... no

checking for initscr in -lcurses... no

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config

checking for gtk+-2... no

configure: WARNING: pkg-config could not find the module gtk+-2.0

checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes

checking for QT4_CORE... no

configure: error: No pinentry enabled.


I have tried:


sudo apt-get install gtk+-2


I get:

Note, selecting 'gir1.2-gtk-2.0' for regex 'gtk+-2'

With the same ./configure results
