I have no problem using dbus_bus_get on a session bus. I run dbus-monitor and I can see the registration going on. when I send a message it did show in the dbus-monitor that it get the message.

I will check if there is some kind of firewall in Ubuntu.
looking below now.

thank you John for being so patient with a newbie.
