Re: Can we install a gtk program without root privileges?

My Nim editor can be launced from the
directory with the binary by typing

./ned file.nim

For testing that is fine. But to make it work from an arbitrary
directory something like

# And for making gsettings available system wide one method is, as root
# /usr/share/gnome:/usr/local/share:/usr/share:/usr/share/gdm
# cd /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas
# cp org.gtk.ned.gschema.xml .
# glib-compile-schemas .

# as root
cp nimdark1.xml /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles/
cp nim.lang /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs/

is necessary as described in the doc. That is fine for myself, but I
can understand that other people fear to damage their system when doing
root actions.

For GSettings you can keep them local (but do compile) and export
GSETTINGS_SCHEMA_DIR [1] to where you have stored them. Unfortunately
the api docs make no reference to [1] so very few will actually find it.

For the language definition you can copy them to
|~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs/| and it should get
picked up automatically, see [2].

With that you should be able to keep root out :-).
