Re: About the mini-howto I'm writing

Hi Bill, Michael & others,

Then, what to indicate finally in my little text ? 
Users are not going to build gtk+ 2.2 from cvs because the entire GNOME 2
environment is been built with GARNOME. The solution I described (check out
gnome-mag from gnome 2.0 branche) worked well for me. But if you think it's
better to disable magnification in gnopernicus before building it what is
to be done to do athat ? Which file to modify ?  And then gnopernicus will
compile without gnome-mag installed ?
