Installation of Nautilus

Install Nautilus by running the following commands:

sed s/\'libm\'/\'m\'/ -i meson.build &&
mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson --prefix=/usr      \
      --sysconfdir=/etc  \
      -Dselinux=false    \
      -Dpackagekit=false \
      .. &&

ninja

To test the results, issue: ninja test. The tests need to be run in a graphical environment.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install &&
glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas

Command Explanations

sed s/\'libm\'/\'m\'/ -i meson.build: Fix the build system so that it finds the Math library.

-Dselinux=false: This switch disables the use of selinux which isn't supported by BLFS.
