1. How do I compile from source?

First of all, you will need GTKmm, Glib, DBus (optional) and pkg-config.

Then you unpack the tarball source, enter the directory, create a new

directory like 'simpleman_build', enter the new directory, and type:

../configure --enable-dbus --enable-debug

make

So, change user to root, and type:

make install

2. How do I use command line arguments?

You can use the follow command to print the help:

simpleman --help
