How do I install Synfig libraries properly (32/64 bit)

I tried both on:

  • Autotools
./configure --prefix=/my/local/path
  • CMake
cmake ... -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/my/local/path

After building and successfully installing by executing

make all -j 4 && make install

on my local path I noticed all Synfig’s lib goes to /my/.../lib instead of /my/.../lib64 directory.

How do I properly install the 64-bit libraries onto the lib64 directory?

Googling around didn’t help much. Most links point to the downstream way of packaging a software project (rpm, apt, etc)

You should try to “Binging” around once and check if you get something.
“Duckduckgoing” around sometimes gets you to your destination as well.

I’m just playing around :rofl:

Thanks for taking the time to help me out.

The answer was right there in your suggested StackOverflow post :slight_smile:

./configure --prefix=/my/local/path --libdir=/my/local/path/lib64

You’re welcome .:grinning: :grinning::grinning:
