Installation of libdbusmenu-qt

Install libdbusmenu-qt by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  \
      -DWITH_DOC=OFF .. &&

To test the results (QJson must be installed), issue: make -k check.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release: This switch is used to build without debugging symbols and apply a higher level of compiler optimizations.

-DWITH_DOC=OFF: This option is set to avoid building the API documentation. Omit it if you have doxygen installed and want the documentation.
