DrKonqi: Enable DBus-Interface for debugging with KDevelop

Authored by croick on Jan 30 2018, 10:25 PM.


  • register a DBus service to make it work at all
  • service name unique by debuggee pid
  • switch hierarchy of adaptor and launcher
    • a single adaptor keeps track of multiple launchers
    • the debugger should provide a unique identification
  • only works with a corresponding patch in KDevelop
Test Plan
  • apply KDevelop patch D10196 and start a new KDevelop session "test"
  • enable the DrKonqi debug button
  • enable ptrace
  • start a kde program (kate for instance)
  • start "drkonqi --dialog --appname kate --pid xxxx"
  • check Debug options: gdb, KDevelop (GDB) - test, KDevelop (LLDB) - test
  • start another KDevelop session "test2" -> additional debug options are now available
  • end session "test2" -> additional options vanished again
  • select "KDevelop (GDB) - test" -> KDevelop raises, DrKonqi buttons are disabled
  • use the GDB console to detach the process and end GDB
  • DrKonqi buttons are reenabled again
