I'm compiling the dock and plugins and trying to run it without installing into my system for testing/debugging etc... but I can't get the plugins to install in a test location.

Whenever I try to run cmake on the plugins I get:
~/cairo-dock-plug-ins/build $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_DATAROOTDIR=cairo-inst-data -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/tmp/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib64 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug

-- It seems that the current CMAKE_INSTALL_{PREFIX,LIBDIR,DATAROOTDIR} flags are not the same that you have used with the core.
-- It will be replaced by this value: /usr
CMake Warning at CMakeLists.txt:95 (message):
Plug-ins should be installed in the same directory as the core, that is to say in /usr/lib64/cairo-dock


Even though I use the exact same command when from both the core and the plugins folders and the core makes and installs into ~/tmp/usr just fine.

It looks like I lost a large portion of my message yesterday, my question was this:

Is there some variable or technique I'm missing that will allow me to install plugins in a local directory?

Thanks,
Ted Ward

Hello,

I'm compiling the dock and plugins and trying to run it without installing into my system for testing/debugging etc... but I can't get the plugins to install in a test location.
It's possible to install the dock and its plugins to any directory but note that you have to install (make install) the core (cairo-dock) first.

e.g.:
cd cairo-dock-core/build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$USER/tmp/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
make
make install
cd ../cairo-dock-plug-ins/build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$USER/tmp/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
make
make install
cd ~/tmp/usr/bin
./cairo-dock


PS: this bug is maybe due to this char: '~'.
What's the content of this file? ~/tmp/usr/lib/pkgconfig/gldi.pc (you should indicate the same prefix for the plugins)

I get the same thing, I ran the same procedure on cairo-dock-core first and it installed in the proper location. (by the way, cairo-dock-plugins is not a sub-folder of cairo-dock-core is it? I assume your "cd ../cairo-dock-plug-ins/build" should be "cd ../../cairo-dock-plug-ins/build")

~/cairo-dock-core/build $ cd ../../cairo-dock-plug-ins/build/
~/cairo-dock-plug-ins/build $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/tward/tmp/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug

~/cairo-dock-plug-ins/build $ cat ~/tmp/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/gldi.pc

exec_prefix = /home/tward/tmp/usr
libdir = /home/tward/tmp/usr/lib64

Oops, yes it was a mistake

pluginsdatadir = /home/tward/tmp/usr/cairo-inst-data/cairo-dock/plug-ins
This is strange! You should have /home/tward/tmp/usr/share/cairo-dock/plug-ins.

Did you do something special? e.g. did you use this flag:-DCMAKE_INSTALL_DATAROOTDIR=cairo-inst-data? You can do that but then, you'll have to reuse the same flag in the plugins.

Can you try to reinstall core and plugins but first, purge the build directory:
cd cairo-dock-core
rm -rf build
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$USER/tmp/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
make
make install
cd ../../cairo-dock-plug-ins
rm -rf build
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$USER/tmp/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
make
make install
cd ~/tmp/usr/bin
./cairo-dock

Deleting the build directory did the trick. There were some files that had some sort of elevated permissions on them for whatever reason, that may have been the source of the issue.
I also had to delete the build folders in order to load the projects from qt-creator as it wants to create its own, but it seems to have fixed that issue as well.
