Install GWorkspace To Fedora

Hi, I have recently upgraded my Fedora Workstation to version 27. I've been
trying out the GNUStep Window Maker desktop and "want more". I am aware of
the GWorkspace "add-on" that needs to be compiled (why isn't there a ready
made Binary for Fedora!?).

In searching various web forums, including the Google Group for GNUStep, I
found that there is no Binary pkg. for GWorkspace and that I do indeed have
to Compile this thing myself.

So in reading the Gworkspace Download page at:
Which says to:
 To enable all the GWorkspace features you need also:

    The PDFKit framework (version >= 0.9) downloadable here.
    PDFKit is needed to build the pdf contents inspector and to extract
metadata from pdf files. 

So I download PDFKit too and go into that directory, type:

Then I get an error message saying:

configure: error: You must run the GNUstep initialization script first!

OK, so I find out what to do to run the GNUstep initialization script. The
instructions are WRONG. The correct path to the script is:


Have to run this as root or it won't do anything or will complain.

Run script. Go back to try to run ./configure for PDFKit and I get the same
run GNUStep init script error message again.

This is so frustrating. I am not a programmer. I don't compile things. This
is not the early days of Linux in the 90s anymore. Why can't we have a ready
made RPM install file for GWorkplace so that we can get on with our life?
