Description of problem:
When creating a new GNOME project in Glade, upon first attempting to compile the
resulting source files - you must run "autogen.sh" to generate the proper
configure scripts to build your project.

Running autogen.sh produces the following:
$ ./autogen.sh 
which: no gnome-autogen.sh in
You need to install gnome-common from the GNOME CVS
$ locate gnome-autogen

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a GNOME Project
2. Save
3. Build
4. Open a terminal and go to project directory
5. Run ./autogen.sh

Actual Results:  see description above

Expected Results:  autogen.sh should have generated all the necessary configure
files to create a binary.

Additional info:

$ rpm -q glade2
$ rpm -q gnome-desktop

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-11-15 18:44:09 UTC
Upstream glade has been fixed not to use gnome-autogen.sh; projects that don't
live in GNOME CVS should not use it. We'll get the fix with newer upstream 

In any case, the recommended way to use glade is to avoid the
Makefile/code-generation features and instead just use it to edit a .glade file,
then load the .glade file using libglade.
