Compile and install xcoral from sources files:
Basically the following commands builds and install xcoral
- tar zxf xcoral-3.47.tar.gz
- cd xcoral-3.47
- make install (as root)
The executable file will be installed in the standard directory /usr/local/bin
and Smac files in /usr/local/lib/xcoral. The configure script allows you to customize the
configuration for your site; for details on how you can do this, type "./configure --help".
The default installation directory is "/usr/local". If you want to specify another
directory we suggest you to use "--prefix" option.
So if you don't have access to root
privileges, type "./configure --prefix=$HOME" then xcoral executable file will be installed
in $HOME/bin and SmacLib files in $HOME/lib/xcoral.
Install xcoral from the rpm package:
- rpm -U xcoral-3.47-0.i586.rpm
If you have a keyboard with accentued chars, use the LANG environment variable (ie. fr_FR).
Xcoral uses setlocale function which looks at LANG variable. Problems appear with UTF-8 code,
so good luck.
We also suggest to use 'focus under the mouse' as Focus Policy.
