Install paps by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
To test the results, issue: src/test_libpaps > test.ps. View the output file in any available PostScript viewer and visually compare it to doc/example-output.png. The results of the output will be more robust with DejaVu, Arphic, and Kochi fonts installed as explained in the Xft Font Protocol Section of the X Window System configuration.
Now, as the root user:
make DOXYGEN=true; make DOXYGEN=true -k install: Use these commands if Doxygen is not installed. Documentation will not be installed.
