[Solved] Building xfce

Hi I want to install thunar I have read the building page, I,m just making the system compatiable. 1 thing I have noticed is the commands to install, ./configure --prefix=${PREFIX} && make && make install. Is this all done by USER or ROOT. When I have been installing Packages I have installed the 1st part by user then make install by root

Hello,

Configure and make should be run as user then make install as root if you select a prefix like /usr (you need to be root ro install something there).

Cheers,

Jérôme

Re: [Solved] Building xfce

The INSTALL file that you've seen with other source code is not the actual command or script that installs the program.  The INSTALL file is a text document that gives installation instructions.

The compile/install for garcon should be the same as for Thunar.  Configure (via autogen) and make as user, then 'make install' as root.  Make install is the actual command that will place the files into your system, and it doesn't depend on the INSTALL doc (it was probably left out as unneccessary).  This process (configure, make, make install) is pretty uniform -- what changes are specific configuration options.

Re: [Solved] Building xfce

Releases contain ./configure, git clones only ./autogen.sh (which generates the ./configure file and friends and then runs it).

Re: [Solved] Building xfce

Oops, sorry about that, I should have paid better attention to your post, where you specified that you had an autogen.  Good luck! smile

Re: [Solved] Building xfce

Ok how do I install it from autogen.sh I installed the xfce4-dev-tools. I am building this on Linux from scratch. As far as I know I have all the dependencies required. I downloaded all as tarballs. I have installed everything until xfce4-panel with

./configure --prefix=/usr

I need the garcon dependencie now, which is causing the problem. Thks for help
