Hello All,

I am trying to run the following example from the PackageKit FAQ and I
cannot get it to compile. What compilation flags should I be using? Are
there any extra libraries (not standard with PackageKit) that I may need?


#include <dbus/dbus-glib.h>

DBusGConnection *connection;
DBusGProxy *proxy;
GError *error = NULL;
gboolean ret;

connection = dbus_g_bus_get (DBUS_BUS_SESSION, NULL);
proxy = dbus_g_proxy_new_for_name (connection,
/* execute sync method */
ret = dbus_g_proxy_call (proxy, "InstallPackageName", &error,
                         G_TYPE_STRING, "openoffice-clipart",
                         G_TYPE_INVALID, G_TYPE_INVALID);
if (!ret) {
        g_warning ("failed: %s", error->message);
        g_error_free (error);
