Note

If you installed the package to your system using a DESTDIR method, /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled was not updated/created. Create (or update) the file using the following command as the root user:

glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas

One test would fail if this package is not installed, so it's better to run the test suite after installation. To test the results, issue ninja test. The tests must be run from a graphical session.
