Question dbus daemon not working with KDE3.5 and dbus-1.0.2


I followed the HOWTO:
http://www.howtoforge.com/dbus_kde_integration or
(same author) in order to activate the sessionwide part of the dbus-daemon. Great article!

However, using $HOME/.dbus-session relies on the output of dbus-launch. I have installed version 1.0.2, which returns:
which is similar to that stated in the document under the second link above.

The problem is that the statement:
is missing in the output of dbus-launch!!

Hence, when the file $HOME/.dbus-session is sourced, this variable is not published to the other applications and they will fail to identify the DBUS-daemon. Also, the scripts inserted in /etc/session.d/kdm/scripts/... will fail, since $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID is empty!

I wonder wether this is a bug of dbus-launch or whether I have to insert the export command manually.

Default dbus error: no export for pid var???


first thanks for your feedback!

Second in my version (0.62) there is also no export for the variable
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID. But the scripts I've written can handle that.

When sourcing the ~/.dbus-session file, the variable is set. No explicit export command is necessary. When you open a new bashsession, and source the file in your homedirectory you'll see this.

Why the scripts run into trouble I do not know.
