Install LessTif by running the following commands:
find -name Makefile.in | \ xargs sed -i 's@$(prefix)/LessTif@$(prefix)/share/LessTif@g' && ./configure --prefix=/usr \ --enable-build-21 \ --disable-debug \ --enable-production \ --disable-build-tests \ --with-xdnd && make && make install
sed -i 's@$(prefix)/LessTif@$(prefix)/share/LessTif@g': This moves the location of the non-FHS compliant /usr/LessTif directory to /usr/share/LessTif.
--enable-build-21: Build the Motif 2.1 compatible version of the LessTif libraries.
--disable-debug: Do not generate debugging information.
--enable-production: Build the release version of the LessTif libraries.
--disable-build-tests: Do not build the test/ tree (see Testing LessTif).
--with-xdnd: Enable XDND GNOME compatibility support.
As with most libraries, there is no configuration to do, save that the library directory i.e., /opt/lib or /usr/local/lib should appear in /etc/ld.so.conf so that ldd can find the shared libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run while logged in as root.
It is advisable to test the installation of LessTif with the test suite located in lesstif-0.94.0/test. It is not required to install any of the resulting binaries to validate the installation. The following commands executed from the source directory will suffice:
cd test && ./configure && make
The LessTif package contains mxmkmf, mwm, xmbind, uil and LessTif libraries.
uil is a user interface language compiler which translates a plain text description of the user interface of a Motif application into a machine-readable form.
