Hey there,

I'Ve just started learning DBUS and wanted to create a simple python 
prog for receiving messages when I plug in my usbdisk.

The first thing what I've tested is starting dbus-monitor and plug in my 
  usbdisk.... uhhmm.. no messages, but why ??

As far as I know gnome-volume-manager uses dbus to receive such signals, 
or not ??

So it should be possible for me too to receive them....

regards, Alex
