Installation of Babl

Install Babl by running the following commands:

make

To test the results, issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/babl/graphics &&
install -v -m644 docs/*.{css,html} /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/babl &&
install -v -m644 docs/graphics/*.{html,png,svg} /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/babl/graphics

Command Explanations

--disable-docs: This switch disables BablFishPath.html and index.html generation. Remove it, if you want them. Note that generating the docs takes a long time, up to as much as 2.8 SBU.

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/babl/graphics: This and the subsequent commands install the library html documentation under /usr/share/gtk-doc/html where other gtk packages put the programmer-oriented documentation.
