Help with autotools

Hi all! I need help with autotools stuff..

My directory structure:

project_name
src
main.py
others.py
data
ui.glade
images.png
po
translations.po

I'd like to do something like that:

The files in "src" should be installed at: $prefix/lib/project_name
The files in "data" should be installed at: $prefix/share/project_name

At $prefix/bin should be create a slink:
$prefix/bin/project_name -$prefix/lib/project_name/main.py

The listen (http://listengnome.free.fr/) does this, but it doesn't use
autotools...

Can anyone help me?
I've tried a lot to make this work, but with no success...

Thanks,

Prior to the reformatting, I copied the help.rtf file onto a CD and checked the box to...

Hi folks, I am developing a apache2 so module in c++. At the moment, I'm trying to get it to compile with automake & friends, but don't get it to work.

(That's not where I want to let them in the end, but I thought it might be easier in the beginning) Then I copied the sample...

Missing Help Files When I enter "recordset" as the keyword and search the Visual Basic Help index, I get many topics of interest in the resulting list. But there isn't any information available from clicking on many of the available topics (mostly methods but some properties are also unavailable). This same problem occurs with many, if not most, keywords. Is there any way I can activate these "missing" help topics? HELP!

I don't know much about autotools or Berkeley db (bdb) but they are being used by a program I'm trying to compile and it's causing me problems. The line which is the culprit is in a configure.ac file and it's: AC_CHECK_LIB(db, db_create, ,AC_MSG_ERROR()) This is what ends up causing the configure script to fail. The thing is, I am pretty sure I have the newest bdb installed on my system. I am able to compile the following bdb-dependent...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
