Installation of GNOME System Monitor

Install GNOME System Monitor by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome &&
make &&
make install


make install will need path access to $GNOME_PREFIX/bin. If your preinstallation changes were made only to the user account, you will need to adjust root's path prior to running make install.

Command explanations

--localstatedir=/var/lib: This switch puts ScrollKeeper files in /var/lib/scrollkeeper instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/var/scrollkeeper.

--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome: This switch puts configuration files in /etc/gnome instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/etc.


The GNOME System Monitor package contains gnome-system-monitor.



gnome-system-monitor displays the process tree and hardware meters.
