Installing Emacs 24.3.1

Earlier I blogged about a little hurdle that I ran into when I was trying to install Emacs 24.1. Since Emacs 24.3.1 was released recently, I thought I would give it a spin.

After downloading the source code, I unzipped the source code and ran configure command. I got a similar error that I was getting before.

 checking for libXaw... configure: error: No X toolkit could be found.  
 If you are sure you want Emacs compiled without an X toolkit, pass  
 to configure. Otherwise, install the development libraries for the toolkit  
 that you want to use (e.g. Gtk+) and re-run configure.  

I am trying to install Emacs on Mint 14. So to satisfy all the dependencies, I installed the missing packages.
  sudo apt-get update   
  sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libtiff4-dev libgif-dev libpng12-dev libxpm-dev libncurses-dev libjpeg-dev libjpeg8-dev libjpeg-turbo8-dev   

After installing the dependencies, the usual three step process worked fine.
 sudo make install  

Hope this helps if you run into the same problem.
