Installation of GTK Xfce Engine

Install GTK Xfce Engine by running the following commands:

sed -i 's/\xd6/\xc3\x96/' gtk-3.0/xfce_style_types.h &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-gtk3              &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

sed -i 's/\xd6/\xc3\x96/' ...: The script glib-mkenums has now been rewritten from perl to python and will crash when it encounters an ISO-8859-1 character in a comment. This sed converts that character to UTF-8.
