Docker gst-plugin installation - Error - "gst/gst.h: No such file or directory"

Hello,
I’m installing gst-python on DeepStream SDK- Docker container to integrate the python bindings for the C sample apps. The image I’m using is '5.0-dp-20.04-samples’
I’m compiling gst-plugin version 1.14.2 following the guide here –

I’m facing this error while make .

These are the precise compilation steps –
apt-get install python-gi-dev
export GST_LIBS="-lgstreamer-1.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0"
export GST_CFLAGS="-pthread -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer1.0 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/glib-2.0/include"
git clone https://github.com/GStreamer/gst-python.git
cd gst-python
git checkout 1a8f48a
./autogen.sh PYTHON=python3
./configure PYTHON=python3
make
make install

Is this a known issue? Looks like it doesn’t pick the existing gstreamer installation in the container.

  • #include <gst/gst.h>*

you should set like this:
export GST_CFLAGS="-pthread -I/usr/include/gstreamer-1.0 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/glib-2.0/include"

Hi @amycao,
We faced the same issue again.
We had to install the package ‘libgstreamer1.0-dev’ on the container. This package is missing in the original image.

You may use 5.0-dp-20.04-devel, it have libgstreamer1.0-dev installed.
