No sorry, I'm afraid you do not understand.
The script to find out the dbus address runs under a complete other user 
(aka root), and
the problem here is that it has to find out the dbus session address for 
all user using my construction.

So all the users are known, as well as the display device (for every 
individual user ).

How to determine to dbus session address for these users, to send a 
message using dbus.notify.
