List of common errors for the module icon-naming-utils.

Error - XML::Simple perl module is required

Stage: configure

checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for XML::Simple... configure: error: XML::Simple perl module is required for icon-naming-utils


  • XML::Simple perl module is needed.


  • Install XML::Simple perl module and its dependencies, libxml-simple-perl in Debian.


In case you do not have root access on the machine you are jhbuilding on, the solution is different:

  • Run the following:
  • mkdir -p /tmp/perlextra/XML
    cd /tmp/perlextra/XML
    wget http://search.cpan.org/src/GRANTM/XML-Simple-2.12/lib/XML/Simple.pm
  • Then edit your .jhbuildrc and add the line:

  • addpath('PERL5LIB', '/tmp/perlextra')

I sure hope someone know the correct way to handle this problem.
