Installation of LXSession

Optionally apply the following patch to be able to put your system into “Suspend” or “Hibernate” state.

patch -Np1 -i ../lxsession-0.5.2-hibernate_consolekit-2.patch

Install LXSession by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-man &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--disable-man: This switch disables building of the manual pages. Remove it if you have installed optional dependencies and wish to build the manual pages.

--enable-gtk3: Builds against GTK+-3 instead of GTK+-2, which is required anyway by libunique.
