+The following steps assume at least the GNUnet and Gtk+ dependencies are installed.
+First, unpack the gnunet-gtk tarball and change into the resulting directory.
+Then, use the following commands to build and install gnunet-gtk:
+.. code-block:: console
+ $ ./configure [--prefix=$PFX] \
+ [--with-gnunet=$GNUNETPFX]
+ $ # Each dependency can be fetched from non standard locations via
+ $ # the '--with-<LIBNAME>' option. See './configure --help'.
+ $ make
+ # make install
+It is highly recommended to use the same prefix ($PFX) for gnunet-gtk that was
+used for GNUnet ($GNUNETPFX). If you did not specify a prefix, gnunet-gtk
+will be installed to ``/usr/local``, which requires you to run the last step
+as ``root``.
+You have to specify ``--with-gnunet=/usr/local`` if you installed
+GNUnet to ``/usr/local`` in the previous steps.
+Depending on the prefixes you specified for the installation and the
+distribution you are using, you may have to edit ``/etc/``, adding
+lines for ``$GNUNETPFX/lib/`` and ``$PFX/lib/`` (replace the prefixes with the
+actual paths you used). Afterwards, you should run ``ldconfig``. Without this
+step, it is possible that the linker may not find the installed libraries and
+launching gnunet-gtk would then fail.
