Installation of JasPer

[Note]

Note

The package source is distributed in .zip format and requires unzip, but it has been correctly packaged and will create the jasper-1.900.1 directory when you unzip it.

patch -Np1 -i ../jasper-1.900.1-security_fixes-1.patch &&
./configure --prefix=/usr    \
            --enable-shared  \
            --disable-static \
            --mandir=/usr/share/man &&
make

This package does not come with a testsuite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

If you wish to install the PDF files for the Reference Manual and a tutorial on the JPEG-2000 standard, run the following commands as the root user:

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/jasper-1.900.1 &&
install -v -m644 doc/*.pdf /usr/share/doc/jasper-1.900.1

Command Explanations

--enable-shared: This command causes the shared library to be built.

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.

--x-includes=DIR --x-libraries=DIR: These tell the configure script where to find Xorg if it is not in /usr/X11, /usr/X11R6, or /usr.
