XSwiftBus doesn't work properly if xsquawkbox is also installed. Ideally XSwiftBus could detect this situation and somehow tell the user "please disable/remove xsquawkbox".
For reference, the conflicted state is: XSwiftBus is available in the plugins menu, and the moment you hit "start server on session bus", then the swift gui shows "Simulator plugin loaded: X-Plane", and Settings/Simulator/Loaded goes from "No plugin" to "Support for the X-Plane simulator via the XSwiftBus plugin" but nothing else works: the gui's "sim" light remains off, the radio and transponder are not synchronised between GUI and x-plane; the aircraft type does not fill in even if you change it after connection.
Not validated: Installation in Application failt, but in XPlane directory it works.
A bug in Mac OS packaging currently blocks launching any swift application on Mac OS. Run the following steps to get it working:
Create config file with unique machine id for dbus by running
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/var/lib/dbus echo "eec798facbde2ad4b0c9c5b15900eabe" > /tmp/machine-id sudo cp /tmp/machine-id /usr/local/var/lib/dbus/machine-id
Run the launcher via
cd /Applications/swift-0.8.0/bin/ swiftlauncher.app/Contents/MacOS/swiftlauncher --bootstrapurl https://datastore.swift-project.org/shared/
All other applications can be launched via the launcher GUI.
