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.
