Red Hat Motif 2.1 for Linux
Last but not least, you can use your Motif libraries to compile programs which are dynamically linked, which should make the binaries smaller and quicker.
An example I suggest trying is NEdit. This is a nice WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor available from ftp://ftp.fnal.gov/. If you don't have Motif, you can still use the statically linked version of this editor, or try to compile it with Lesstif. Compiling this program on my system gave me errors of this type:
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so: undefined reference to 'XpEndJob' /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so: undefined reference to XpSelectInput /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so: undefined reference to XpGetPdmStartParams
The libXp library comes in XFree86-devel, so the Makefiles which come with NEdit must be modified to include -lXp. You can examine the Makefiles which come with the demo programs (see Figure 3) to give you clues to other libraries which are not properly linked.
Motif isn't a necessity for the average Linux user, but it does provide you with a clean interface and a standard GUI model for the UNIX environment. It is especially nice for programmers who want to use their Linux boxes to write software that will easily port to proprietary UNIX systems.
