I spent much of last night learning about D-Bus in an attempt to prepare myself for writing my IrDA monitoring tools. Both myself and Livejournal:keybuk believe that D-Bus is the right thing to try and use for this, all I have to do is work out how. Unfortunately this is made less than easy by a total lack of any good tutorial or examples. Even given the dbus-monitor and dbus-send tools I have been unable to actually demonstrably send a D-Bus message from one app to another. If anyone has any clues/ideas, I’d be grateful. Otherwise it’s going to be a case of blindly coding in a desperate attempt to get somewhere.
