1 Installation
**************

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 `http://www.gnustep.org'
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)

   * jpeg (RECOMMENDED)

   * png (RECOMMENDED)

   * gif or ungif (OPTIONAL)

   * aspell (OPTIONAL)

   * cups (OPTIONAL)

   * audiofile (OPTIONAL)

   * portaudio, v19 which has several API changes previous version
     (OPTIONAL)

   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
regularly.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
