libxcb-1.11

Introduction to libxcb

The libxcb package provides an interface to the X Window System protocol, which replaces the current Xlib interface. Xlib can also use XCB as a transport layer, allowing software to make requests and receive responses with both.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.

Installation of libxcb

Install libxcb by running the following commands:

sed "s/pthread-stubs//" -i configure &&
./configure $XORG_CONFIG    \
            --enable-xinput \
            --docdir='${datadir}'/doc/libxcb-1.11 &&
make

To test the results, issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

sed "s/pthread-stubs//" -i configure: This sed removes dependency on libpthread-stubs package which is useless on Linux.

--enable-xinput: This switch enables XCB Xinput extension.

--without-doxygen: This switch can be used to disable the API documentation if Doxygen-1.8.8 is installed.
