DeviceKit 003

DeviceKit is an abstraction for enumerating devices and listening to
device events. Any application on the system can access the
org.freedesktop.DeviceKit service via the system message bus. On
GNU/Linux, DeviceKit can be considered a simple D-Bus frontend to


   glib-2.0    >=  2.12
   dbus-glib-1 >=  0.76
   libudev     >=  130

NOTE NOTE NOTE: This is probably the last release of DeviceKit. The
                functionality of DeviceKit is going to be merged into the
                udev-extras with the only changes being the D-Bus name
                as well as the prefix for the GObject library and the
                command line tool.
