That's not a Connection, but delete the ".ImChannel2" from the end and you'll
get the Connection's bus name.
That looks like a correct Channel, though. Channels are "smaller than"
Connections; that example expects you to specify a Connection, followed by a
Channel belonging to that Connection.
One possible sequence to demonstrate the "low-level" examples, which I should
put in examples/README or something, is:
(1) run examples/client/telepathy-example-list-connections (which does not need
any command line arguments) to list all connections by their bus name,
for instance I get:
** Message: Found 6 connections:
** Message: org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.gabble.jabber.simon_2emcvittie_40collabora_2eco_2euk_2fEmpathy
** Message: - CM gabble, protocol jabber
(2) run examples/client/telepathy-example-inspect-connection with one of those
bus names as parameter; one of the things it lists is all the channels.
For instance I'd run this:
and I get this output:
Handle: type 3, #1
(3) run examples/client/telepathy-example-inspect-channel and give it the
connection name from (1), and the channel path from (2). For instance I'd
As for examples/client/telepathy-example-inspect-contact, it expects to be
given the bus name or object path of a Connection (as used in (2)), optionally
followed by a contact ID (a JID if you're using XMPP, a Passport if you're
using MSN, and so on). It'll tell you a bit about that contact, or if you
didn't give it a contact, it'll tell you a bit about yourself.
Hope this helps,
