    Changing Install Directory


    Hey, I'm trying to install this programme, and I've configured it and now I'm at the make install step. How do I specify another install directory (not /usr/bin and preferable desktop). What's the exact syntax pm on Fedora.

    PHP Code:
    su make install /home/Desktop 
    I know that's not exactly right, but what is?

    Hi and welcome to the forums.

    What you are asking for should be done during ./configure e.g.

    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/home/someuser/somedir
    make 
    make install
