[edit] Configuring for Services

[edit] All KDE-4 versions

If you instlled KDE-4.x.y in: "/opt/KDE-4, the default location where D-Bus services will be installed is "/opt/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/services". D-Bus needs to find these services and use them.

You can either change the default to install them in:

/usr/share/dbus-1/services

by adding the CMake parameter:

-DDBUS_SERVICES_INSTALL_DIR:PATH=/usr/share/dbus-1/services
Or, you can add, for example:
  <servicedir>/opt/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/services</servicedir>

{use the actual path from your system}

to your: "/etc/dbus-1/session-local.conf" file.

NOTE: Although you can place multiple paths for services in the "/etc/dbus-1/session-local.conf" file, if the services have the same name, only the last one will be used. This may or may not cause problems if you have multiple versions of KDE on your system.

[edit] KDE >= 4.4 and TRUNK

The current KDE-4.4 BRANCH and TRUNK also install a: "system-services" directory. If you installed KDE-4.x.y in: "/opt/KDE-4, the D-Bus system services will be installed in "/opt/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/system-services". D-Bus needs to find these services and use them.

You can either change the default to install them in:

/usr/share/dbus-1/system-services

by adding the CMake parameter:

-DDBUS_SYSTEM_SERVICES_INSTALL_DIR:PATH=/usr/share/dbus-1/system-services
Or, you can add, for example:
  <servicedir>/opt/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/system-services</servicedir> 

{use the actual path from your system}

to your: "/etc/dbus-1/system-local.conf" file.

NOTE: Although you can place multiple paths for system services in the "/etc/dbus-1/system-local.conf" file, if the services have the same name, only the last one will be used. This may or may not cause problems if you have multiple versions of KDE on your system.

[edit] SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR

You can use the parameter: "SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR" when running CMake to place the configuration directories where you want them which would normally be: "/etc/kde-4" or if installing multiple versions: "/etc/kde-<version>"

For example, if you use:

-DSYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR=/etc/kde-4

Then you must configure D-Bus to find these directories.

First if one or both of the directories:

/etc/kde-<version>/dbus-1/session.d
/etc/kde-<version>/dbus-1/system.d

doesn't/don't exist, create it/them.

Then add:
  <includedir>/etc/kde-4/dbus-1/session.d</includedir>

to your: "/etc/dbus-1/session-local.conf" file.

If you don't have the: "session-local.conf", create it:

------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------
<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
 "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
 "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/dbus/1.0/busconfig.dtd">
<busconfig>

  <!-- Search for .conf files in /etc/kde-4/dbus-1/session.d -->
  <includedir>/etc/kde-4/dbus-1/session.d</includedir>

</busconfig>

------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------

And add:
  <includedir>/etc/kde-4/dbus-1/system.d</includedir>

to your: "/etc/dbus-1/system-local.conf" file.

If you don't have the: "system-local.conf", create it:

------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------
<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
 "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
 "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/dbus/1.0/busconfig.dtd">
<busconfig>

  <!-- Search for .conf files in /etc/kde-4/dbus-1/system.d -->
  <includedir>/etc/kde-4/dbus-1/system.d</includedir>

</busconfig>

------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------

[edit] Policy files

It is not possible to configure the location of the "*.policy" files. therefore, you must build KDE-4 and: "polkit-kde-1" with:

-DKDE4_AUTH_POLICY_FILES_INSTALL_DIR:STRING=/usr/share/PolicyKit/policy

{for PolicyKit installed with a prefix of: "/usr"}
