I didn't notice any errors during the configure/install process, but when I went to try to install audacious-plugins: "Cannot find Audacious 3.10". Audacious itself fails to launch with this error:

audacious: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object

I've attached the terminal output from my attempt to configure and install audacious and audacious-plugins.

The first issue you will need to solve is this: "checking for AUDACIOUS... no". The log claims to have installed audacious.pc, but pkg-config on your system isn't able to find it. It's probably in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig -- if so, try setting PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig, then reconfigure and rebuild audacious-plugins.

Note that you need to configure both audacious and audacious-plugins with --enable-qt if you want to use the Qt interface.

The second issue (" cannot open shared object file") is probably also path-related. The log claims to have installed Try to find that file, and determine if it is in the system's shared library path. It's probably in /usr/local/lib or some similar path -- if so, try setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib before you run audacious.

That worked, thanks! I don't have any FFMPEG or AAC libraries, but I think I can do without those.

Uh, huh... I don't think that's supposed to look like that.
