I'm trying to install an Evolution plugin using these instructions:

How do I minimize Evolution to the system tray in Ubuntu?

In the sudo make stage, I get the following output:

make  all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/gilnaa/Downloads/evolution-tray-0.0.8'
Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/gilnaa/Downloads/evolution-tray-0.0.8/src'
make  all-am
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/gilnaa/Downloads/evolution-tray-0.0.8/src'
  CC     tray.lo
tray.c:28:32: fatal error: gconf/gconf-client.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[3]: *** [tray.lo] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/gilnaa/Downloads/evolution-tray-0.0.8/src'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/gilnaa/Downloads/evolution-tray-0.0.8/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gilnaa/Downloads/evolution-tray-0.0.8'
make: *** [all] Error 2

See the following line:

tray.c:28:32: fatal error: gconf/gconf-client.h: No such file or directory

How can I solve this problem?

I have exactly the same problem!!!! – andrewmh20 Jun 6 '13 at 0:08

This means that you need to install the C header files (aka development library) for gconf. Try installing the package libgconf2-dev, then try again.
