User Notes:

Installation of libgnomeprintui



The instructions below are based on installing the package into a GNOME-2 environment. If, for whatever reason, you're installing this package without having ORBit2 and the core GNOME-2 libraries installed, you'll need to modify the --prefix= parameter on the configure script to point to your desired installation path (e.g., --prefix=/usr).

Install libgnomeprintui by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0): Setting the prefix using this parameter instead of with $GNOME_PREFIX will ensure that the prefix is consistent with the installation environment and the package will be installed in the correct location.

--enable-gtk-doc: Use this option if you have GTK-Doc installed and wish to build the API documentation, as the source tarball does not contain any pre-built docs.


Installed Programs: None
Installed Library: libgnomeprintui-2-2.{so,a}
