I'm trying to install Mapnik on Debian using the instruction at https://github.com/mapnik/mapnik/wiki/DebianInstallation. It says to install do:

apt-get install libmapnik2-2.0 mapnik-utils

I did that but the very first thing the "Getting Started" tutorial at the same site (https://github.com/mapnik/mapnik/wiki/GettingStartedInPython) says is to run:

mapnik-config -v # should return a version number.

The tutorial goes on to say you need 2.x, which I assume mean 2.0 or greater, and that you may get error in 2.0. But I don't get errors - the program just does not exist. I also tries to install from wheezy backports but that didn't work either. Surely someone else has had this issue but I can't find anything.

According to packages.debian.org the binary mapnik-config is contained in the package libmapnik2-dev.

Ah thx. Thought it might be. I was yet confirm that as I can't get that installed just yet as I have some dep conflicts to sort out. Should be OK though.
