In Makefile.am, instead of this:
SUBDIRS = $(TOPSUBDIRS)
SUBDIRS = lib daemon_generic daemon_kde test
Your move comes at a good time, as I was about to suggest some kind of
prototyping as well.
I have been working on a similar solution for some time now.
It started out as a library to let Qt applications do such things like
starting preferred applications in a crossplatform way.
However I started moving over to an out-of-process modell using DBus, thus
enabling service implementation in the desktop's preferred way (like you do
as well) and make it accessible to non-Qt applications (the service API is
now a DBus interface)
My suggestion would be to do a simple prototype interface in DBus, try to
implement it for the common DEs, find current restrictions/implementation
problems, get feedback from application developers, repeat.
I am volunteering to work on the KDE service implementation and keeping the
Qt3 DBus binding in shape for the necessary requirements as we move along.
(current downloads are still the old non-DBus release, I can create a
development snapshot if there is interest but the sources can also be fetched
via Berlios' anonymous SVN)
