Herostratus’ legacy

words from a lazy coder

devhelp and jhbuild

When I started to use jhbuild I resolved to not compile a whole new Gnome desktop because my work laptop is too slow and freeze easily: I had to reduce the dependencies at minimum and try reuse the libraries already provided by my distro (Ubuntu by the way).The first trouble I had was to have access to the gtk-doc API documentation through the installed devhelp. The solution is simply, but not obvious (at least for me):

Append in ~/.profile



Well, you know you’ve to change the path to your jhbuild deployment directory
