*system-wide* KDE install, how?


The README that comes with Konstruct only tells you how to install KDE to your $HOME directory. But how can I install it system-wide?

Instead of installing it in $HOME, install it in /usr/local/kde, for example. That's all you need to change.

Thanks for the reply -- but I don't know how to do that

With Konstruct, you pretty much just download it, and "make install". How can I tell it to install it somewhere other than my home?

hte README file tells you how to do it. What you need to do is edit a file in the konstruct directory.

Hey, you're right! I must've read that thing 20 times and never saw the bit about editing your gar.conf.mk.

Okay, so I'm on the right track now. But what about the fact that I've already compiled/installed this thing into my $HOME dir? Do I really have to recompile the whole thing just to change the location?

yo ucould copy the whole thing over to /usr/local/kde or whatever. It should work. You might wanna put a link from the old location to the new location, though. So if the old location is ~/kde and the new one /usr/local/kde, make
ln -s /usr/local/kde ~/kde
