Hello Max,

Do you have a bit more information about that? I went to the Wiki page
about D-Bus: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/D-Bus but this is outdated or
incomplete (again); I've played around with this:

# dbus-send --print-reply --dest="org.openmoko.Dialer" /org/openmoko/Dialer org.openmoko.Dialer.Dial string:08961308351
Failed to open connection to session message bus: dbus-launch failed to
autolaunch D-Bus session: Autolaunch requested, but X11 support not
compiled in.
Cannot continue.

# export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-GJbsqe78BO,guid=c08c2c056c7ef84e3fc4a09048f59782

(the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS I've got by just doing 'cat /proc/*/environ | fgrep DBUS')

# dbus-send --print-reply --dest="org.openmoko.Dialer" /org/openmoko/Dialer org.openmoko.Dialer.Dial string:08961308351
Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name
org.openmoko.Dialer was not provided by any .service files

So, now I'm lost :-(
