Running the program

On default installations of most Debian-based distributions, you'll most likely need to run Dwarf Therapist with sudo. This is due to the

Yama ptrace LSM
_ enabled by default on such distros. You can explicitly give Dwarf Therapist permission to ptrace on Debian-based distributions with::
sudo apt-get install libcap2-bin && sudo setcap cap_sys_ptrace=eip ./bin/release/DwarfTherapist

Or, you can create a script that will run Dwarf Therapist as a child of Dwarf Fortress::

set -e
cd df_linux
./df &
cd ../dwarftherapist
exec ./bin/release/DwarfTherapist

Alternatively, you can use the

wrapper to automatically grant DT permissions to attach to a running DF process.


Primary support is available at the

Dwarf Therapist thread
_ at the Bay 12 Forums; if you are sure you have found a bug, file an issue at the
GitHub issue tracker
. Provide as much information as possible to help reproduce the issue. Most runtime bugs will require you to send a save, preferably uploaded at
. You may also be requested to provide a log, which is saved in
on Windows and OSX and output to stderr on Linux systems (use
2> log.txt
to collect).
