Installation of Colord GTK

[Warning]

Warning

If building the documentation ninja -j1 must be used.

Install Colord GTK by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson --prefix=/usr       \
      --buildtype=release \
      -Dgtk2=true         \
      -Dgtk4=true         \
      -Dvapi=true         \
      -Ddocs=false        \
      -Dman=false ..      &&
ninja

To test the results, issue: ninja test. The tests need to be run from an X session, and may require a color profile for your primary display.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install

Command Explanations

--buildtype=release: Specify a buildtype suitable for stable releases of the package, as the default may produce unoptimized binaries.

-Dvapi=true: This switch enables building of the Vala bindings. Remove this switch if you don't have Vala-0.56.1 installed.

-Dgtk2=true: This switch enables building the GTK+-2 bindings for colord.

-Dgtk4=true: This switch enables building the GTK-4 bindings for colord. Set this option to 'false' if you do not have GTK-4.6.5 installed.

-Ddocs=false: This switch disables building gtk-doc based documentation. Even if gtk-doc is installed, you will need the namespaced versions of the Docbook XSL stylesheets.

-Dman=false: This switch disables generating the manual pages for this package. Remove this switch if you have namespaced versions of the Docbook XSL stylesheets installed.
