You probably need to use dbus-glib's parameterized GTypes instead of
G_TYPE_BOXED. I'm not going to go into the details here, because
dbus-glib is basically awful[1].

It would also help if you spelled "signal" correctly :-)

I strongly recommend using GDBus, part of GIO, instead - you already
depend on GLib/GObject/GIO via dbus-glib.


[1] It is unmaintained, and I am its unmaintainer. I recommend not using
it. Run away while you still can.
