The Facebook protocol plugin for bitlbee. This plugin uses the Facebook Mobile API.
General usage instructions are available in the bitlbee wiki:
Installing from APT repo
An APT repo for several recent debian/ubuntu versions is available here:
Building from source
Make sure bitlbee and its headers have been installed. If bitlbee came from the distribution's repository, it will most likely need the development package, usually bitlbee-dev.
If bitlbee was built by hand (or alike via a script), ensure the make
install-dev is invoked. This target is not called by default,
and will install the headers that are needed.
Do not use the source tree headers unless you know what you are doing. This can lead to mismatched header versions, which often times will lead to bad things.
$ git clone https://github.com/jgeboski/bitlbee-facebook.git $ cd bitlbee-facebook
With a "global" (or system) bitlbee installation:
$ ./autogen.sh $ make $ make install
Or with a "local" bitlbee installation (location: $HOME/bitlbee):
$ export BITLBEE_CFLAGS="-I$HOME/bitlbee/include/bitlbee" $ export BITLBEE_LIBS="" $ ./autogen.sh --with-plugindir=$HOME/bitlbee/lib $ make $ make install
One of the two supported environment variables can be defined to enable debugging output. This can be used in unison with debuggers such as GDB, which should enable easier tracing of bugs.
When posting to the issue tracker, please ensure any sensitive information has been stripped.
