1.1 Introduction
This file documents the installation of the GNUstep GUI Library,
`gnustep-gui'. If you are installing this package as part of the
GNUstep core package, read the file GNUstep-HOWTO for more complete
instructions on how to install the entire GNUstep package (including
this library). GNUstep-HOWTO is located at `'
and in the gnustep-make package (which you should install first).
You must have installed gnustep-base and gnustep-make before
building this library. GNUstep Make version 2.0.0 or greater is
required. GNUstep Base version 1.15.0 or greater is required.
Other external libraries that you should have installed include:
* tiff (REQUIRED)
* gif or ungif (OPTIONAL)
* aspell (OPTIONAL)
* cups (OPTIONAL)
* audiofile (OPTIONAL)
* portaudio, v19 which has several API changes previous version
Read the GNUstep-HOWTO for more information. After installing this
library, install gnustep-back.
1.2 Configuration
Configuration is performed by running the `configure' program at a
shell prompt. You may want to use some of the optional arguments to the
`configure' program. Type `configure --help' for a list. GNUstep
specific options are at the end of this list (if any).
1.3 Compilation
To compile this library, type make. After this is complete, type make
install (make sure you are the root user). Some additional options you
can use with make are `debug=yes' to make a debugging version of the
library and `shared=no' to make a static version of the library. See
the gstep-make package for more information on these options.
1.4 Installing
To install, type
make install
1.5 Post Installation
GNUstep gui comes with a tool called `make_services' which builds a
list of installed applications and services. This list is used to find
services for the services menu, for instance. This tool should be run
after a new service or application is installed in the system.
Theoretically, a workspace application, such as GWorkspace, should do
this automatically. But this is not done at the current time. You
might consider running this service automatically, perhaps in a login
script, to make sure the service and application lists are updated
