Installation of GNOME2 User Docs



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 GNOME2 User Docs by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&
chmod -v 644 `pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/share/gnome/help/\

Command Explanations

--localstatedir=/var/lib: This switch puts ScrollKeeper files in /var/lib/scrollkeeper instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/var/scrollkeeper.
