what's the way to get monitor hotplug events in a user desktop session?
I want to setup ICC profiles during monitor connections and
deconnections. Currently this is done inside Compiz. But I want to put
the setup code into a speperate application. Ideally this application
would be called on demand.

Is DBus the right thing to register to? If yes, how?

Code examples are welcome too if any.

kind regards
