gnome-mag provides a command-line interface for standalone use. gnome-mag's primary goal is to provide a set of magnification services for use by other client applications and assistive technologies.

For information on the "magnifier" command=line utility, type

"magnifier --help" or "magnifier --usage" after installing


In order to get CVS gnome-mag installed on your system, you need to have the most recent CVS versions of libbonobo installed as well. Note that gnome-mag also requires gtk+ and gnome-commonr.


To compile a CVS version of libgail-gnome on your system, you will need to take several steps to setup the tree for compilation. You can do all these steps at once by running:

cvsroot/gnome-mag# ./

Basically this does the following for you:

cvsroot/gnome-mag# aclocal; automake; autoconf

The above commands create the "configure" script. Now you can run the configure script in cvsroot/gnome-mag to create all the Makefiles.

Before running or configure, make sure you have libtool in your path.

Note that runs configure for you. If you wish to pass options like --prefix=/usr to configure you can give those options to and they will be passed on to configure.
