(note that i am using a eee-pc and am not a linux expert, even less a xandros expert)
I am having great difficulties to install samsungfs (little app to browse a samsung mobile phone (connected on usb cable) like a filesystem)
because it needs fuse and fuse-python. Fuse is installed as a kernel module that I can see with the command "lsmod" but I don't know anything else about it : version? path? etc.
I've downloaded fuse-python, read the INSTALL file and tried to build the thing :
|> python setup.py build
pkg-config could not find fuse:
you might need to adjust PKG_CONFIG_PATH or your FUSE installation is very old (older than 2.1-pre1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 69, in ?
iflags = [x[2:] for x in cflag.split() if x[0:2] == '-I']
NameError: name 'cflags' is not defined
I have no clue where I should find and set PKG_CONFIG_PATH, and what I should set it to? This is an environment variable I guess?
I have tried something else which might be interesting to the courageous ones wanting to help on this tricky problem
|> pkg-config --modversion fuse
Package fuse was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `fuse.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'fuse' found
And I can't find this fuse.pc file...
Thank you for your help. I've spent the last 6 hours trying to make this samsungfs app work, and I'm tired (5:10am here...) I love linux but it's hard to overcome this ton of little problems adding up...
