Installation of libshumate

Install libshumate by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson setup --prefix=/usr          \
            --buildtype=release    \
            --wrap-mode=nodownload \
            -Dgtk_doc=false        \
            ..                  &&

If you have Gi-DocGen-2023.3 installed and wish to build the API documentation for this package, issue:

sed -e 's/lib_version/version/' \
    -e '/fatal-warnings/d'      \
    -i ../docs/      &&
meson configure -Dgtk_doc=true  &&

To test the results, issue: ninja test.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install

Command Explanations

--buildtype=release: Specify a buildtype suitable for stable releases of the package, as the default may produce unoptimized binaries.
