Configuring for Services

All KDE-4 versions

If you instlled KDE in: "/usr/KDE-4, the D-Bus services will be installed in "/usr/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/services". D-Bus needs to find these services and use them.

You need to add, for example:
  <servicedir>/usr/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/services</servicedir>

{use the actual path from your system}

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

If your system doesn't yet have that file, 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>
  <servicedir>/usr/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/services</servicedir>
</busconfig>
------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------

{use the actual path from your system}

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.

KDE-4.4 and TRUNK

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

You need to add, for example:
  <servicedir>/usr/KDE-4.4/share/dbus-1/system-services</servicedir> 

{use the actual path from your system}

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

If your system doesn't yet have that file, 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>
  <servicedir>/usr/KDE-4/share/dbus-1/system-services</servicedir>
</busconfig>
------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------8<------

{use the actual path from your system}

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.

SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR

If you install two different versions of KDE-4 (including TRUNK) you will need to use the parameter: "SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR" when running CMake. Otherwise, you will be installing files with the same names from the two versions in the same location.

For example, if you install KDE-4.3 and KDE-4.4 use:

-DSYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR=/etc/kde-4.3
-DSYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR=/etc/kde-4.4

respectively.

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

For example for "SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR=/etc/kde-4.4", first if the directory:

/etc/kde-4.4/dbus-1/session.d

doesn't exist, create it.

Then add:
  <includedir>/etc/kde-4.4/dbus-1/session.d</includedir>

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

And add:
  <includedir>/etc/kde-4.4/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 as above.
