Installation of Extra Cmake Modules

Install Extra Cmake Modules by running the following commands:

sed -i '/"lib64"/s/64//' kde-modules/KDEInstallDirs.cmake &&

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .. &&

This package does not come with a test suite.



Unlike other KF5 packages, this module is installed in /usr because it can be used by some non-KF5 packages.

Now, as the root user:

make install
