    Hi, is there a way to tell setup.py to install into user defined "root"? It would be a easy way to create a package.

      Hi,
      gtkrawgallery uses the standard installation method  of python applictions. That permit to install the software on every distribution and creates a link into the main menu.
      There are many python applications packaged for many distributions using the same method(maybe all),  so you could see at them.

      Regards

      Thanks for hint.

      python setup.py install --prefix=/usr --root=$pkgdir

      This seems to be the right way.
