Installation of Nautilus CD Burner

Install Nautilus CD Burner by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin \
    --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin: This switch puts libexec files in $GNOME_PREFIX/sbin instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.

--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome: This switch puts configuration files in /etc/gnome instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/etc.

--disable-hal: Use this switch if you have HAL version >0.4.7 installed, as the build will fail with higher versions due to the D-BUS/HAL ABI changes.
