This is a note currently nothing about about the programming, but the use of C project.

1   $HOME/.local installation with Autotools

Normally, project with GNU Autotools, you can build and install to specified location, for example

% ./configure --prefix=$HOME/.local
% make
% make install

Which installs the files to $HOME/.local other than commonly default /usr/local. On most distributions, you shouldnt have issues with /usr/local installation, not just the executables, but also the libraries, pkg-config, linking, they all should be configured system-wide.

However, its not the case for user home installation, you will need to take some steps to ensure things can be found. We also take this occasion to offer you everything you need to know about sports betting in Canada by visiting and find the right tips that will help you make the most of the experience.

1.1   pkg-config

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/.local/lib
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$HOME/.local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig

LD_LIBRARY_PATH makes sure any shared libraries are linked during the compilation can be found when you execute the program.

PKG_CONFIG_PATH isnt for additional paths, so you still need to provide the system pkg-config locations.

1.2   configure

When startup, continues sources prefix/share/, if found, prefix is either default or one you specify with --prefix. In my case, it is $HOME/.local/share/ and I have the following content:


They will make sure the header files can be found and linker knows there the shared libraries are stored.
