Building DBus Explorer on LMDE
Nice easy build today. DBus Explorer is a handy C# application for probing DBus.
DBus Explorer is developed on GitHub: https://github.com/garuma/dbus-explorer
DBus Explorer relies on DBus-Sharp-GLib, which relies on DBus-Sharp, so all three will need to be built.
git clone https://github.com/mono/dbus-sharp.git git clone https://github.com/mono/dbus-sharp-glib.git git clone https://github.com/garuma/dbus-explorer.git
Build and install DBus-Sharp. Expect a few warnings, but it should compile successfully.
cd dbus-sharp ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
Build and install DBus-Sharp-GLib. I was able to compile this library without errors.
cd ../dbus-sharp-glib ./autogen.sh make sudo make install
Build DBus Explorer
cd ../dbus-explorer ./autogen.sh make
If you just want to run DBus Explorer, you can launch it from the terminal right now.
mono --runtime=v4.0 src/bin/Debug/DBusExplorer.exe
If you want a shortcut, two more steps must be performed.
Open src/bin/Debug/dbus-explorer in a text editor and change exec mono to exec mono --runtime=v4.0
The modified file should look like this:
#!/bin/sh exec mono --runtime=v4.0 "/usr/local/lib/dbus-explorer/DBusExplorer.exe" "$@"
DBus Explorer can now be installed (Run from the dbus-explorer/ directory)
