dbus-1.12.20p1v0 – message bus system (cvsweb github)

Description

D-Bus is a message bus system, a simple way for applications to talk to
one another. In addition to interprocess communication (IPC), D-Bus
helps coordinate process lifecycle; it makes it simple and reliable to
code a "single instance" application or daemon, and to launch
applications and daemons on demand when their services are needed.

To start a session bus instance of dbus-daemon (needed by applications
installing ${PREFIX}/share/dbus-1/services/*.service files), add the
following lines to your Xsession script before starting the window manager
(see dbus-launch(1) for more info) -- note that some session/login managers,
like gnome-session(1) already handle this automatically.

e.g. console login: ~/.xinitrc
if [ -x ${PREFIX}/bin/dbus-launch -a -z "${DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS}" ]; then
	eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session`
fi

e.g. graphical display manager: ~/.xsession
if [ -x ${PREFIX}/bin/dbus-launch -a -z "${DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS}" ]; then
	eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-x11`
fi
