-- INSTALL for Idesk

Compilation and Installation:
--------------------------------

The simplest way to compile this package is:

 $ ./configure
 $ make
 $ make install

   The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for
various system-dependent variables used during compilation.  It uses
those values to create a `Makefile' in the directory src.

Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that you can run
in the future to recreate the current configuration, a file
`config.cache' that saves the results of its tests to speed up
reconfiguring, and a file `config.log' containing compiler output
(useful mainly for debugging `configure').

   If you need to do unusual things to compile Idesk please try
to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail
diffs or instructions to idesk-developers list (see idesk.sourceforge.net) 
so they can be considered for the next release.  If at some point 
`config.cache' contains results you don't want to keep, you may remove 
or edit it.

   The file `configure.in' is used to create `configure' by a program
called `autoconf'.  You only need `configure.in' if you want to change
it or regenerate `configure' using a newer version of `autoconf'.

The completed process is:

  1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
     `./configure' to configure the package for your system.  If you're
     using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
     `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
     `configure' itself.

     Running `configure' takes awhile.  While running, it prints some
     messages telling which features it is checking for.

  2. Type `make' to compile the package.

  3. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
     documentation.

  4. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
     source code directory by typing `make clean'.  To also remove the
     files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
     a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. 


Compilers and Options:
----------------------
   Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that
the `configure' script does not know about.  You can give `configure'
initial values for variables by setting them in the environment.  Using
a Bourne-compatible shell, you can do that on the command line like
this:
     CC=c89 CFLAGS=-O2 LIBS=-lposix ./configure

Or on systems that have the `env' program, you can do it like this:
     env CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-s ./configure


Optional Features:
------------------
  Idesk supports the XShape extension of X11R6.  This support is enabled by
default, but may be overridden by specifying `--disable-shape' on the configure
script's command line.

  Idesk provides startup notification support. This change the default X cursor for a clock cursor (in wait form), when you click an icon and the application launch, the cursor change and wait for application finished for startup. You need the libraries for startup notification, you can download that from:
 
 http://www.freedesktop.org/software/startup-notification

It is disabled by default, but may be overridden by specifying
'--enable-libsn' on the configure script's command line.  

Please read the README file also.
