How to Compile the Manual for Bluefish from CVS source

The source for the bluefish manual is in the bluefish-doc directory of bluefish, but the manual for is not produced during the compiling of bluefish. It must be compiled separately.

In order to do this, you need to first download the source from the bluefish directory. The cvs is in the same directory at sourceforge.

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.bluefish.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bluefish login

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.bluefish.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bluefish checkout bluefish-doc

The two directories, bluefish-gtk2 and bluefish-doc should be in the same parent directory on your computer just as they are in the cvs.

The README in bluefish-doc tells you what you need to have to make it work. In part it says to download docbook-xsl-1.67.2.tar.gz (or later), then unpack it in the bluefish-doc directory. docbook-xsl can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/docbook/.

From the bluefish-doc directory, run 'make html' to produce a chunked version in html format.

See the README for details and other formats.
