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``.  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`_ that you need to
install first.

.. _`keybinder`: http://kaizer.se/wiki/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, but it not the
recommended way.
