Geomview For Windows?
Some of Geomview's external modules use the XFORMS GUI library.
Geomview itself does not use XFORMS, so if all you want is Geomview
itself, you do not need XFORMS. If you do want XFORMS, it's
easy to install an XFORMS release for your system.
- Download and unpack the Geomview source code (version 1.8.0 or
greater). Don't run 'configure' yet.
- Download XFORMS for your system. XFORMS is available from:
If you're using a system other than GNU/Linux, you can download the
XFORMS binary distribution for your system from the
old XFORMS home page. Downloading source from
is recommended instead.
- Unpack the XFORMS distribution into the top-level directory
of your Geomview source tree (e.g. the directory called
geomview-1.8.0 that was created when you unpacked Geomview).
This will create a subdirectory thereof called 'xforms'.
If you are compiling from source, you will need to move xforms-1.0.90 to xforms.
- You're done. Now when you cd .. and run Geomview's './configure' script, it will notice
the presence of the xforms subdirectory and will use it
when building Geomview's modules. You don't need to use the
'--with-xforms' argument to './configure'. See INSTALL.Geomview
and INSTALL for general instructions on configuring Geomview.
