    Try sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-dev
    by the way this should have been installed by the Build-Ubuntu.sh, Are you using that to install and build Vrui?

    Dear Michael,

    thanks for your suggestion, I tried sodu apt-get install libdbus-1dev, however the system told me it already installed,
    —————-
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    libdbus-1-dev is already the newest version (1.10.6-1ubuntu3.3).
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 271 not upgraded.
    —————-

    can you tell me any other ways to fix it

    Try this command. It will tell you where it put the file.
    dpkg -L libdbus-1-dev

    here is the output of mine. I removed all the lines that are not the file
    we are looking at.

    /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dbus-1.0/include/dbus/dbus-arch-deps.h

    If you find the file, then the issue becomes why is your compile not pointing to the correct directory to find it.
    You may have to compile with VERBOSE=1 and get all the output of the failed compile including the g++ command to compile.

    Michael
