User Notes:

Installation of libgnomeui

Install libgnomeui by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) \
            --libexecdir=$(pkg-config \
                --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0)/lib/libgnomeui &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

If your GNOME installation prefix is anything other than /usr, create the following symbolic link as the root user:

ln -v -s $(pkg-config \
      --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0)/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/filesystems \

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.

--libexecdir=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0)/lib/libgnomeui: This parameter causes the libexec files to be installed in the preferred location of $GNOME_PREFIX/lib/libgnomeui instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.

--with-kde-datadir=$KDE_PREFIX/share: Use this parameter if you have KDE installed in any prefix other than /usr.

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

Configuring libgnomeui

Configuration Information

Some applications cannot properly discover the libglade interface library installed by libgnomeui. Get around this problem by initializing an environment variable which identifies the location of the library. Add the following line to the system-wide /etc/profile file, or to individual user's ~/.profile or ~/.bashrc files:

export LIBGLADE_MODULE_PATH=$GNOME_PREFIX/lib/libglade/2.0


Installed Programs:
Installed Libraries: libgnomeui-2.{so,a}, the libgnome.{so,a} Glade library, and the libgnome-vfs.{so,a} GTK+ library
Installed Directories: The following subdirectories of $GNOME_PREFIX/: include/libgnomeui-2.0, lib/{gtk-2.0/2.4.0/filesystems, libgnomeui} and share/gtk-doc/html/libgnomeui
