Installation of GConf

Install GConf by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --sysconfdir=/etc \
            --disable-orbit \
            --disable-static &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&
ln -s gconf.xml.defaults /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system

Command Explanations

--disable-orbit: This switch is required if ORBit2 is not installed. ORBit2 is a deprecated package.

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

--enable-gtk-doc: Use this parameter if GTK-Doc is installed and you wish to rebuild and install the API documentation.
