The installation of this program is pretty straightforward:

0. PREREQUISITIES
==============
You will need the following libraries to compile this program:

- GTK+ >= 2.0 (tested on 2.10.13)
- glib >= 2.0 (tested on 2.12.13)

You will need both the libraries (either in static or dynamic form),
and their header files (which may not be installed on your system
by default; for example, check for gtk+-devel, glib-devel and XFree86-devel
packages on Red Hat Linux or Mandrake Linux). This also assumes that the
"pkg-config" command is in your PATH.

The source of screentest is available at the screentest homepage:
    http://screentest.sourceforge.net/

You will also need the ISO C9x-compliant C compiler. This program uses
ISO C9x-style structure initializers, so this is a NECESSARY CONDITION.
You can use for example gcc-3 or later, which is available on most
Unices.

The build process has been tested on Debian unstable (www.debian.org),
but should work on any recent version of UNIX-compatible system.

1. PREPARING THE SOURCES
=========================
Unpack the distribution using the following command:
    zcat screentest-<version>.tar.gz
Change the directory to the source directory:
    cd screentest-<version>
Set it up for your system:
    ./configure
You can run "./configure --help" for details of the configuration process.

2. COMPILING THE PROGRAM
========================
Run "make". This will compile the "screentest" programs. Since the program is
mostly standalone, you can now verify their function by running them in the
current directory (calling "./screentest").

3. INSTALLING
=============
Run "make install".

4a. IF YOU LIKE IT
==================
This program is postcardware. Read the top of the file "COPYING" and send
me a postcard, if you want. Let me know on what system you have tested it,
so I can estimate the userbase and portability of the program.

4b. IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT
========================
Please let me know what can I do for improving screentest. Use the
e-mail <tobias@portfolio16.de>. If you want to add new modes, see the NEW_TESTS
file for details.

	Hope you find this program useful.
