Guake README file ================= INTRO ~~~~~ Guake is a dropdown terminal made for the GNOME desktop environment. Its style of window is based on an fps games, and one of its goals is be easy to reach. Guake is written mostly in python and has a little piece in C (global hotkey stuff). The code is placed in the src directory. Files and images are in the data directory. If you're looking for translation stuff, you should take a look at the po directory.

DEPENDENCIES ~~~~~~~~~~~~ * Python2.4+ * pygtk2.10 (gtk.StatusIcon) * python-vte * python-notify * python-dbus * python-gconf To build guake, you will need the following packages too: * python-dev * gtk+-2.0-dev * pygtk-dev * gconf2-dev (to use some autoconf stuff) INSTALLATION ~~~~~~~~~~~~ We are using an autotools based installation, so if you got the source of guake from a release file, please do the following:: $ gunzip -c guake-x.x.x.tar.gz | tar x $ cd guake-x.x.x $ ./configure && make $ su (give the root password here!) # make install If you receive a message asking you if you have installed guake.schemas properly when launching guake, it means that your default sysconfdir is different from the one choosen by autotools. To fix that, you probably have to append the param `--sysconfdir=/etc' to your `./configure' call, like this:: $ ./configure --sysconfidir=/etc && make If it is not enought you can call, you can install the gconf schemas file by hand doing the following:: # gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule data/guake.schemas For more install details, please read the `INSTALL` file.
