INSTALLING
==========
This project is configured for waf; waf is shipped in the
distributable tarball but not in the repository.
If you need to get waf, run:

    wget -O waf http://waf.googlecode.com/files/waf-1.5.8
    chmod +x waf

Installation follows the steps:

    ./waf configure --prefix=PREFIX
    ./waf

then
    ./waf install

or 
    sudo ./waf install

here `PREFIX` assigns an installation spot. For all users,
programs are normally installed with prefix as /usr/local.
Installing only for your user, the prefix ~/.local is often
used; you just have to check that
`~/.local/bin` is in your $PATH
`~/.local/lib/python2.*/site-packages` is in python's sys.path
(if not, you can add it by setting $PYTHONPATH)

SPAWNING
========
Kupfer is installed as `kupfer` into $PREFIX/bin.

KEYBINDER MODULE
----------------

Kupfer uses tomboy's keybinder code, just like many other
applications do for global keybindings.
I had to break out the python wrapping of the code into a
standalone python module [keybinder][kb] that you need to install
first:

[kb]: http://kaizer.se/wiki/python-keybinder
[kb]: http://github.com/engla/python-keybinder

Now you can set kupfer's keybinding by editing kupfer's config.
See `kupfer --help` for how to do that.

You can use kupfer without the keybinder module, for example
by assigning a global keybinding to the `kupfer` binary; it is
not recommended.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
