Galeon is a work in progress. This means that it will crash,
it won't work as expected and it may damage random files of your 
system. However, we encourage you to test it and report any bug you
find, and send us patches if you feel that you can help. You can go to for more info.

	This are the steps to install Galeon:

1. Gnome libs installation

You need a full installation of the Gnome 2 libraries in order to
compile galeon. You can find more info about Gnome 2 at:

2. Mozilla Installation
	Galeon depends on Mozilla, so you have to have a working
Mozilla installed. If you can't start Mozilla there are very little
chances that you could run Galeon. 
	You can go to to get info about
Mozilla and about how to install it. 

At the moment the easiest way to install a gtk2 mozilla that works with
galeon is to:

- Download mozilla 1.3b source from

Once you have downloaded the mozilla source, compile mozilla using
--enable-default-toolkit=gtk2 (and as usual --disable-debug)

  For example:
  ./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2 --disable-debug
  make install

NOTE: If you want anti aliased fonts you have to use also the --enable-xft
option.  (Using this option requires fontconfig and Xft2, so beware.)

3. Galeon installation

- Checkout galeon cvs (head) from
- Compile and install

  For example:
  ./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome
  make install
NOTE: If your GNOME2 is installed through the Garnome system
then you will probably need to set your ACLOCAL_FLAGS
appropriately before running, e.g.

export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I $HOME/garnome/share/aclocal"

NOTE: You may also need to pkg-config where you have installed mozilla.  You
can do this by setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point to the directory where 
it can find the mozilla-gtkmozembed.pc file, e.g.

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig

4. Starting Galeon
	Type "galeon" in a terminal or select "Galeon" from your Gnome 
foot menu (it should be under Net, Internet or similar, depending of
your locale).

NOTE: If you get an error like "Bonobo couldn't locate the
GNOME_Galeon_Automation.server" it usually means you have installed galeon
using a different prefix than the rest of the GNOME2.  You can fix this by
letting Bonobo know where to find the GNOME_Galeon_Automation.server -file,

bonobo-activation-sysconf --add-directory=/opt/gnome/lib/bonobo/servers
