It is often reported that users find GNUstep difficult to install. This may be a result of lacking information.
Generic installation instructions
To install a standard configuration you need only 3 steps:
- Download the package "GNUstep Startup" (i. e. gnustep-startup-0.18.3.tar.bz) from the download page (http://wwwmain.gnustep.org/resources/downloads.php). Unpack it into a directory of your choice.
- cd into that directory. To build and install, type: sudo ./compile-all
- add the following line to your ~/.bashrc: . /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh
This is all.
GNUstep Applications and additional libs can be installed via sudo make install.
