1.3. Installing from the Source Code

To install BlazeBlogger from the source code, download the latest source package from the official homepage, and unpack it:
tar xfz blazeblogger-1.2.0.tar.gz
A directory called blazeblogger-1.2.0 will appear in the current working directory. Switch to superuser, get into the newly created directory, and type the following at a shell prompt:
make install
This will install executables, manual pages, documentation, and application data to the /usr/local/ directory, and place Bash completion file to /etc/bash_completion.d/. To use a different installation directory, change the value of prefix on the command line. For example, if you want to install BlazeBlogger to /usr/, type the following command:
make prefix=/usr install
Alternatively, you can choose to install exacutables only. For instance, to install BlazeBlogger into your home directory, type:
make prefix=$HOME install_bin
Finally, if you prefer to install all available files, but you do not have superuser privileges, change the value of compdir to a directory you have access to. For example:
make prefix=$HOME compdir='$(prefix)/etc' install
