Installation of Gnumeric

Install Gnumeric by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr  &&
make

This package must be installed before the test suite is run.

Now, as the root user:

make install

To run the tests, issue make check. Tests should be run from an active X session, and DConf-0.40.0 should be installed to prevent some failures. Four tests are known to fail, one due to a changed test file and three related to valgrind.

Command Explanations

--enable-pdfdocs: Use this switch if you have installed dblatex and wish to create PDF docs.
