Cannot find the library `/usr/lib/`

I got this error while compiling Peekabot from source. If you get this error for the same reason or for any other reason: Installing pixbuf from source package is the workaround for now.

apt-get source libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0
cd gdk-pixbuf-2.22.0/
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

If you install from the repos you get the shared library but not the static which peekabot seems to require!! 

Good luck!
