That was a bad idea. Any reason for install glib from source - What was
wrong with the ubuntu apt provided version ?

I would suggest trying to go back to the ubuntu version of glib

Not sure how glib is packaged (that is, how many separate packages are
created from the source), but a brute-foce approach would be "sudo
aptitude reinstall libglib2.0-0". You should probably also reinstall the
other packages that are called libglib2.0-*.

Of course it would be better if you could try a "sudo make uninstall" in
your self-compiled copy of the source before reinstalling the packages
-- but not all makefiles offer one, try it out.

It was probably just telling you that it needs the libglib2.0-dev
package to compile.

In Ubuntu (and Debian) the development files (headers and such) are
packaged separately, so that people who don't use don't have to waste
space on them. Therefore, if you compile from source the ./config script
will often tell you "library xy not found", or something like that. More
often than not this just means that if didn't find the headers, which
can be solved by installing the corresponding -dev package.

And a tip regarding "make install": if you replace that with
"checkinstall make install", it will build a nice *.deb package instead
of simply dumping the files in the file system. This allows you to keep
an overview of what is installed, and also to uninstall cleanly.

Why would you do that? You can't expect that compiling libraries from
source would work with your existing system. The library is available as a
package from ubuntu as libglib1.2. Nothing installed from ubuntu is going
to want any other version of the library.

oops. Missed libglib2*. As Mario says, you usually need the -dev package
of a library to compile apps that use it. I trust you realize anjuta is
_also_ available as a package.
