  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.
  1. Download and unpack the Geomview source code (version 1.8.0 or greater). Don't run 'configure' yet.

  2. Download XFORMS for your system. XFORMS is available from:
    http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/xforms

    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 http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/xforms is recommended instead.

  3. 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. Then:
    cd xforms
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    .

  4. 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.

For more information about XFORMS, see http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/xforms
