The LessTif package contains an Open Source version of OSF/Motif®.

Project Homepage: Unknown

Dependencies

Required

Optional

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

sed -i -e 's:-L$L/lib:-L@libdir@:' \
       -e 's:-L/usr/X11R6/lib:$XL:' \
       scripts/motif-config.in &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-debug \
    --enable-production --with-xdnd &&
make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2

Install the package

make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2 install

Command Explanations

--disable-debug: Do not generate debugging information.

--enable-production: Build the release version of the LessTif libraries.

--with-xdnd: Enable XDND GNOME compatibility support.

rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2: This installs the documentation into an appropriate directory instead of the non-FHS compliant /usr/LessTif directory.

mv -v /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/mwm /etc/X11: The mwm configuration directory is moved to its proper FHS location in /etc/X11.

ln -v -s ../../../../etc/X11/mwm /usr/X11R6/lib/X11: A symlink required by some legacy applications is created pointing to the mwm configuration directory moved in the previous command.

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the package:

sed -i -e 's:-L$L/lib:-L@libdir@:' \
       -e 's:-L/usr/X11R6/lib:$XL:' \
       scripts/motif-config.in &&
CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" USE_ARCH=32 \
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-debug \
    --enable-production --with-xdnd &&
make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2

Install the package

make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2 install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/motif-config{,-32}

N32

Compile the package:

sed -i -e 's:-L$L/lib:-L@libdir@:' \
       -e 's:-L/usr/X11R6/lib:$XL:' \
       scripts/motif-config.in &&
CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" USE_ARCH=n32 \
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib32 --disable-debug \
    --enable-production --with-xdnd &&
make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2 libdir=/usr/lib32

Install the package

make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2 libdir=/usr/lib32 install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/motif-config{,-n32}

64Bit

Compile the package:

sed -i -e 's:-L$L/lib:-L@libdir@:' \
       -e 's:-L/usr/X11R6/lib:$XL:' \
       scripts/motif-config.in &&
CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" USE_ARCH=64 \
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --disable-debug \
    --enable-production --with-xdnd &&
make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2 libdir=/usr/lib64

Install the package

make rootdir=/usr/share/doc/lesstif-0.95.2 libdir=/usr/lib64 install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/motif-config{,-64} &&
ln -sfv multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/motif-config

Short Descriptions

motif-config is used to find out configuration information for packages needing to link to the LessTif libraries.
mwm is a window manager that adheres largely to the Motif mwm specification.
mxmkmf is the LessTif version of xmkmf which creates a Makefile from an Imakefile.
uil is a user interface language compiler which translates a plain text description of the user interface of a Motif application into a machine-readable form.
xmbind configures the virtual key bindings of LessTif applications.
libXm.so is an OSF/Motif® source code compatible library for the X Window System. You can download an excellent reference guide (mainly for programmers) for the Motif-2.1 specification from http://unc.dl.sourceforge.net/lesstif/6B_book.pdf.
