Dear all:

I am new to dbus, and I have some problem when using it.

firstly ,I downloaded "dbus-0.92.tar.gz" from web site 
  "" , and installed it.

then I use command "dbus-daemon --system --print-address ", and get the 
following error: 


Failed to start message bus: Could not get UID and GID for username 
"messagebus" "

why I can not start message bus , what I need to do?

Question 2:

when I use command " dbus-monitor --system" and I get the following error:

"Failed to open connection to system message bus: Failed to connect to 
socket /usr/local/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory 
I wonder  system_bus_socket is located at /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket, 
why trying to connect to /usr/local/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket.what I 
should do?

what I  want is to get the signal of device added or device removed

thank you for your help.
