Dbus bindings

Hi,

I’d like to use dbus from ruby, I found dbus-ruby [1] but it seems old
(01/2005) and deserted. It does not compile on my Ubuntu system; I think
because the dbus api changed significantly and dbus-ruby is no longer
compatible.

Does anyone know how to get dbus working from ruby?

Hi Eyal,

I had a look at this a few weeks ago and yes the dbus api seems to
have changed a lot. Some of it is simply a matter of renaming some
constants/functions and I did get a version that almost worked, but
I got distracted before I got it finished. Unfortunately I don’t have
time to go back to it now, but I would be interested if you or anyone
else can get this working again. Sorry not to be more help.

I’m also looking for a way to use dbus from Ruby. Since a lot of
applications under Linux (GNOME, KDE, and more) are starting to provide
information and control this way, there’s a lot of cool things possible,
and of course I’d like to use ruby for this. :slight_smile:

Dbus is looking to be a really important technology on Linux and
possibly other *nixes (and there’s even a Windows port now).

Here’s to hoping someone has the time to update the bindings…
