GNOME 1.4 Libraries

This section contains additional GNOME 1.4 libraries, needed by some applications that have not yet been ported to GNOME 2.x. None of these libraries are needed for a GNOME desktop install.

Pre-installation configuration

Add to your system or personal profile:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig
export GNOME_LIBCONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib

Add to your /etc/

cat >> /etc/ << "EOF"
# Begin gnome addition to /etc/


# End gnome addition

Remember to execute ldconfig after installation of libraries to update the library cache.

Add to your /etc/man.conf:

cat >> /etc/man.conf << "EOF"
# Begin gnome addition to man.conf

MANPATH /opt/gnome/man

# END gnome addition to man.conf
