## Building
We use the meson and thereby Ninja. The quickest way to get going is
to do the following:
meson ../calls-build
meson -Dprefix=/usr/local/stow/calls-git ../calls-build
ninja -C ../calls-build
ninja -C ../calls-build install
## Running
Calls depends on oFono Modem objects being present on D-Bus. To run
oFono with useful output:
Calls has a variety of backends. The default backend is "mm", which
utilises ModemManager. To choose a different backend, use the -p
command-line option. For example, to run with the dummy backend and
some useful debugging output:
export G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=all
/usr/local/stow/calls-git/bin/calls -p dummy
If using ModemManager, Calls will wait for ModemManager to appear on
D-Bus and then wait for usable modems to appear. The UI will be
inactive and display a status message until a usable modem appears.
### oFono
There is also an oFono backend, "ofono". This was the first backend
developed but has been superceded by the ModemManager backend so it
may suffer from a lack of attention.
The ofono backend depends on oFono Modem objects being present on
D-Bus. To run oFono with useful output:
