Gtranslator in openSUSE 11.1

You can install kbabel under Gnome still, but I just wanted to use gtranslator for the first time.
First thing to do is logging as root. Then install the following packages:

  • gconf2-devel
  • gtkspell-devel
  • gtksourceview18-devel
  • gtk2-devel
  • glib2-devel
  • libsoup-devel
  • gucharmap-devel
  • libglade2-devel
  • gdl-devel
  • db43-devel
  • make
  • gcc
  • gnome-common
  • autoconf
  • automake
  • libtool
  • intltool
  • gtk-doc
  • gnome-doc-utils-devel
  • libgtksourceviewmm-2_0-devel
  • libdb-4_5-devel

I take for granted you already have installed the subversion package. If you don’t have it, now is a good time to get it. (zypper in subversion).

Now you can create a new folder where you can download gtranslator’s source. I decided to create the new folder in /home/ricardo/gtranslator. Then run a terminal session, go to the just created folder and type:

svn co gtranslator

Now we are ready to compile and install gtranslator, so we need to type:

  • cd gtranslator
  • ./
  • make
  • make install

And gtranslator should be in the directory /usr/local/bin. Off to contribute! =)
