when I look at the processlist with ps on my machine, I see something like:
dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 6 --print-address 8 --session
It's launched by the dbus-launch program, right?
If I've understood this dbus-launch program on his turn is started by
the system dbus-daemon,
when it recieves an call from an user without dbus-daemon running for
Is it really neccesary that the dbus-daemon for a session is started by
dbus-launch? I've read that
the filedescriptors are used by programs that launch the message bus.
Is this mandatory??
Some time ago I've used a construction to start the dbus-daemon for a
session just by a script,
writing the output to a file (which then contains the address and the
pid) which is sourced by the bash
shell when it starts. Is there something against this construction?
Thanks in advance,
