The instructions below are based on installing the package into a GNOME-2 environment. If, for whatever reason, you're installing this package without having ORBit2 and the core GNOME-2 libraries installed, you'll need to modify the --prefix= parameter on the configure script to point to your desired installation path (e.g., --prefix=/usr).
Install libgnomecanvas by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) && make
To test the results, issue: make check.
Now, as the root user:
--prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0): Setting the prefix using this parameter instead of with $GNOME_PREFIX will ensure that the prefix is consistent with the installation environment and the package will be installed in the correct location.
--enable-gtk-doc: Use this parameter if GTK-Doc is installed and you wish to rebuild the API documentation.
