G-Star is written in C and should compile on most UNIX systems. Although
I am not aware of any portability problems, G-Star has only been tested on
GNU\Linux. The following additional libraries are also required:
- GNOME - At least 1.0 (however it has only been tested on 1.2, if it

- libglade - You must have libglade installed with GNOME support
- GdkPixbuf - At least version 0.7.0
The most recent version of the G-Star sources are available
RPMs and .debs are planned.

- Go to the directory where you downloaded the tarball.
- Run su to enable superuser access.
- Unpack the tarball with tar -xzvf gstar-0.1.3.tar.gz.
- Change to the directory into which the sources were unpacked with
- Run the configure script with ./configure.
- Build the program with make.
- Install the program with make install.
- Run the program with gstar.
The latest sources can be gotten via anonymous cvs by typing the following:
- %cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/gstar login
- %cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/gstar co
This will create a directory called `gstar' and copy all the source files
into it. You can then run the `autogen.sh' shell script to generate the
