I was trying to compile Pianobar on the raspberry pi, for the purposes of modifying the source code.

Alas, the one problem I have left to a successful compilation (according to the output of make) is gcrypt.h not found.

I followed the build instructions here - note the sudo apt-get install libevent-pthreads-2.0-5 libao-dev gnutls-dev libmad0-dev libfaad-dev libjson0-dev pkg-config, which didn't take too much effort.

The problem is I seem to need gcrypt, and if my brand new Raspbian distribution has it, I sure can't find it!

Thanks for any help.

  • Thank you guys! I actually figured this out some time before you answered with aapt-cache search gcrypt command. Perhaps for general edification you could mention that in your answer? Mar 15, 2014 at 18:26

It should be libgcrypt11-dev that you need.
