When configuring a software (subversion) on Ubuntu Linux (10.04 lucid), I get an error:

configure: error: cannot find D-Bus

I restarted dbus service:

#service dbus restart
dbus start/running, process 14688

but still get the same configure error.

Looks like the daemon, not the dbus development package. You can grab it from spm.

apt-get says cannot find package dbus-devel. (I had installed dbus itself using apt-get). – tanon May 14 '11 at 5:01
libdconf-dbus-1-dev is what you're looking for. It has some deps though – Blomkvist May 14 '11 at 5:03
Thanks. That didnt work, but finally, libdbus-1-dev worked for me. – tanon May 14 '11 at 5:15
I though libdconf would grab libdbus as a dep but your right, it doesn't. Seems odd but I guess they had their reasons for doing it like that. – Blomkvist May 14 '11 at 5:35
