checking for xmms-config... no
checking for XMMS - version >= 1.2.9... no
*** The xmms-config script installed by XMMS could not be found.
*** If XMMS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XMMS_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xmms-config.

^still ppl use winamp look-a-likes in Linux :oops: if at all,dump xmms as it uses obsolete gtk1.2 interface.use beep-media-player,bmpx or audacious(buggy?) :-|

Currently,I am enjoying rhythmbox,totem and exaile.all are far better.

Think Zen.
^ Run Synaptic dude.
And use the search from there.

And yeah, Use something else like praka said, gtk-1.2 is obsolete now.

Code:

Dude, try the following,One after another

./configure --prefix=/usr

./configure --prefix=/etc.
I dont know where ubuntu installs its files.Lemme know how it goes.

Also, i think you need the development libraries.
Look if there's something like xmms-dev in synaptic.

Code:
sudo apt-get install libgdk-pixbuf-dev


why dont u convert vumeter rpm to deb using alien?

Think Zen.
^^Use what praka suggested, he's used to Debian naming conventions.

@praka,
Alien can break stuff dude, IMO better stay away from it.

^NO,for these simple plugins,it wont break anything hopefully,most prolly the plugins will go to the path /usr/lib/xmms/plugins/ etc
@kakkad:
if u can complete from source installation,do it.
else use:
Code:
sudo apt-get install alien
then,download vumeter rpm from here:
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/5888350/com/vumeter-0.9.2-3.12.i586.rpm.html
now go to the directory where u downloaded the rpm(use "cd" command)
and run:
Code:
sudo alien --to-deb vumeter-0.9.2-3.12.i586.rpm
