Summary: We begin our exploration of D-Bus.
gdbusto communicate with the server.
qdbusto see what's available
gdbus introspectto find out more about the sample server
$ gdbus introspect -e -d org.gtk.GDBus.TestServer -o /org/gtk/GDBus/TestObject
gdbus monitor org.gtk.GDBus.TestInterface
1. Look at the sample D-Bus server (Example 2) at
http://developer.gnome.org/gio/2.28/GDBusConnection.html. I do not expect you to understand all of the code (or even much of it).
2. Pick some part of the code that you think you can understand and be ready to explain it. You might choose a chunk of code, a function, or even a high-level overview of the code. I'd prefer that you choose something that you think will challenge you.
3. Pick some part of the code that looks important but that you can't understand. Email me to let me know what it is. (Send email by Tuesday night.)
I usually create these pages
on the fly, which means that I rarely
proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details.
It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for
more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
