Installation of File Roller

Install File Roller by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson --prefix=/usr --buildtype=release -Dpackagekit=false .. &&
ninja

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install &&
chmod -v 0755 /usr/libexec/file-roller/isoinfo.sh
[Note]

Note

If you installed the package to your system using a DESTDIR method, /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled was not updated/created. Create (or update) the file using the following command as the root user:

glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
[Note]

Note

This package installs icon files into the /usr/share/icons/hicolor hierarchy and desktop files into the /usr/share/applications hierarchy. You can improve system performance and memory usage by updating /usr/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme and /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache. To perform the update you must have GTK+-2.24.33 or GTK+-3.24.34 installed (for the icon cache) and desktop-file-utils-0.26 (for the desktop cache) and issue the following commands as the root user:

gtk-update-icon-cache -qtf /usr/share/icons/hicolor &&
update-desktop-database -q

Command Explanations

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

-Dpackagekit=false: This switch disables the use of PackageKit which isn't suitable for BLFS.
