Aquiring a service

I'm trying to aquire a service called manix.windowmanager, but I get the 

Connection ":1-2" is not allowed to own the service "" due to security 
policies in the configuration file

I've checked the string that I pass to dbus_bus_acquire_service and it 
is indeed manix.windowmanager. I also tried to put a manixwm.service 
file in the /etc/dbus-1/system.d folder, with the following lines

[D-BUS Service]

But I get the same error. I've read the DBus specification more than 
once, but I can't find how it's supposed to work. If anyone can shed 
some light on this I'd appreciate it.
