To compile and install qnotify from source apply the following steps:

  1. You need to have the qt-libraries and qt-headers installed, there are no kde-libs needed
  2. Unpack the downloaded tarball e.g. with tar or a graphical frontend like ark
  3. cd into the directory where you have unpacked the files
  4. Do a ./configure (./configure --help gives further instructions)
  5. Type "make"
  6. Login as root with "su root"
  7. Type "make install"
  8. That's it
