Bug Description

I just installed geany and when running autogen.sh over the code. I get

configure: ** bzr plugin enabled
configure: ** chrome plugin enabled
configure: ** eog plugin enabled
configure: firefox-libzg plugin disabled
configure: ** geany plugin enabled
configure: ** gedit plugin enabled
configure: ** rhythmbox plugin enabled
configure: totem-libzg plugin disabled
configure: ** vim plugin enabled
configure: ** emacs plugin enabled
configure: ** tomboy plugin enabled
configure: ** telepathy plugin enabled
configure: ** xchat plugin enabled

Which says that geany is enabled

When I run make, I get an error

Making all in geany
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/manish/code/zeitgeist-dataproviders/geany'
  CC zeitgeist_dataprovider_la-zeitgeist_dataprovider.lo
zeitgeist_dataprovider.c:24:25: fatal error: geanyplugin.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[1]: *** [zeitgeist_dataprovider_la-zeitgeist_dataprovider.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/manish/code/zeitgeist-dataproviders/geany'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

There is something wrong in the way build-script runs

Assigning it to myself.

I think I found the reason why it fails. It needs gtk development headers for working

$ pkg-config --cflags geany
Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gtk+-2.0', required by 'Geany', not found

After installing libgtk2.0-dev on Ubuntu, it worked

This means that a check has to be made for gtk-dev

Added a check for GTK in geany section

if test "x$HAVE_GTK" = "xno"; then
    plugin_error_or_ignore "You need to install gtk development headers"
    continue

and now ./autogen.sh gives

checking for ZEITGEIST... yes
checking for GTK... no
no
checking for LIBXUL... no
configure: WARNING: libxul not found (disabling plugin)
configure: WARNING: You need to install gtk development headers (disabling plugin)
configure: WARNING: gtk+-2.0 not found (disabling plugin)
checking for emacs... no
checking for xemacs... no
checking where .elc files should go... ${datadir}/emacs/site-lisp

checking which plugins to compile... bzr chrome eog gedit rhythmbox vim emacs tomboy telepathy xchat
configure: Zeitgeist-dataproviders was configured with the following options:

geany gets disabled

Done. This issue is faced only when you are building from source. Most of the build systems solve this by explicitly specifying the build-deps
