Description

libdbus-1(3lib)                                                libdbus-1(3lib)



NAME
       libdbus-1, libdbus-glib-1 - D-Bus Library and GLib bindings

DESCRIPTION
       D-Bus is a message bus system, a simple way for applications to talk to
       one another.  The libdbus-1 library provides low-level API.  The  dbus-
       glib-1  library  provides  C-language  bindings  for using D-Bus with a
       higher-level approach.  The higher level approach is  possible  because
       GLib  defines  a main loop, an object/type system, and an out-of-memory
       handling policy (it exits the program).

       D-Bus supplies both a system daemon (for events such as  "new  hardware
       device  added" or "printer queue changed") and a per-user-login-session
       daemon (for general IPC needs among user applications).  Also, the mes-
       sage bus is built on top of a general one-to-one message passing frame-
       work, which can be used by any two apps to communicate directly  (with-
       out going through the message bus daemon).
