Installation of libgnomeui

Install libgnomeui by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin \
    --disable-gtk-doc &&
make &&
make install

Command explanations

--libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin: This switch puts libexec files in $GNOME_PREFIX/sbin instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.

--disable-gtk-doc: This switch prevents rebuilding the documentation during the make command.

Configuring libgnomeui

Configuration information

Some applications cannot properly discover the libglade interface library installed by libgnomeui. Get around this problem by initializing an environment variable which identifies the location of the library. Add the following line to the system-wide /etc/profile file, or to individual user's ~/.profile or ~/.bashrc files:

export LIBGLADE_MODULE_PATH=$GNOME_PREFIX/lib/libglade/2.0


The libgnomeui package contains gnome_segv2, libgnomeui libraries, libgnome-vfs GTK+ libraries and libgnome glade libraries.
