Installation of AT SPI

Install AT SPI 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 the rebuilding of the documentation during the make command.


The AT SPI package contains libspi, libcspi and libloginhelper libraries, the GTK+ module, ORBit-2.0 Accessibility modules and at-spi-registryd.



at-spi-registryd is the registry daemon that allows communication between the UI and assistance devices.
