User Notes:

Installation of GtkHTML

Install GtkHTML by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) \
            --libexecdir=$(pkg-config \
                --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0)/lib/gtkhtml &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--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.

--libexecdir=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0)/lib/gtkhtml: This parameter causes the libexec files to be installed in the preferred location of $GNOME_PREFIX/lib/gtkhtml instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.
