Installing Support Files

Complete Gnome applications consist of more than just code. They have online help, are listed on the Gnome panel's menu, have translations, and have a desktop icon. They might come with pixmaps as well: a logo for the "about" dialog, a graphic for a "wizard," or a small icons to help the user rapidly distinguish menu items or list elements. This section tells you how to ship some of these files.

Installing Datafiles: Documentation and Pixmaps

Documentation and pixmaps are installed in much the same way; automake allows you to install datafiles to arbitrary locations, and you can use variables defined by configure to decide where they should go.
