Installing Qtime

To install Qtime, perform these steps:

Figure 2.1: Steps to installing Qtime

Line 1 unpacks the Qtime tarball. A directory named qtime-1.0 is created beneath the current directory containing the Qtime distribution. Line 2 instructs you to change to the qtime-1.0 directory. Line 3 instructs you to edit the Makefile. There are instructions in the Makefile to tell you how to prepare for installation. You must be sure to set the appropriate environment variables to tell the ``make'' process where your qwish executable is located. The information you specify in the fields: YOUR_COMPANY, YOUR_STREET, YOUR_CITY, YOUR_STATE, etc tell Qtime the default information that first appears in the ``User information'' window. This information can be modified at any time from the xqtime ``User information'' window through the xqtime configuration menu option. xqtime displays this information on the printed and email reports.

After you've saved your changes to ``Makefile'', Line 4 starts the ``make install'' process. After this step, you've completed your installation and are ready to run the Qtime programs: newqtime and xqtime.
