I cannot get cdemu 1.4.0 to run in Debian Wheezy 64-bit.

Well I managed to install cdemu by building first .deb packages and then installing them on my system.

First I downloaded the tarballs the correspondent versión 1.4.0 from the CDemu sourceforge site:

Then as the official website suggests I opted to build the build the .deb packages with this command for each package:

First, I decompressed the files, then in the current program diretory I did:

dpkg-buildpackage -b -tc
made the packages in this order:


Everything compiled and packaged without problems, And I had no problem installing them.

then I created the file /etc/udev/rules/99-vhba.rules

with this content:
KERNEL=="vhba_ctl", MODE="0660", OWNER="root", GROUP="cdemud"
I created the group cdemud and added my user in there.


Then I tried to start the cdemu daemon by typing as normal user, as it is especified by the cdemu site, and the error:
Starting CDEmu daemon with following parameters:
 - num devices: 1
 - ctl device: /dev/vhba_ctl
 - audio driver: null
 - bus type: session

cdemud: Daemon: failed to get session bus: Unable to autolaunch when setuid!
Daemon initialization failed: Failed to connect to D-BUS bus.
Then I followed the indications related to Dbus from this thread:

created the file /etc/default/cdemud

given permissions to it
#chmod ugo+x cdemud
Added the line
/usr/bin/cdemud --bus=session &
in my .bashrc file

Restarted again with nothing new.

The only thing that I have everytime I open a Terminal window is the error message with dbus.

Maybe I'm missing somthing but I really don't know what could it be, I tried practically everything, but the daemon fails to connect to dbus.

I remember That I installed it in Debian Squeeze long time ago, but I NEVER got it working by compiling it myself, thus I added this repository:

And installed the packages of it, and then cdemu magically worked.
