I wanted to start using BMPx and Tapioca. They both need dbus. I managed to launch both of them with dbus-launch.
I read on the BMPx wiki and on this forum that in order to create a dbus for all programs in an x session I need to launch my WM with dbus-launch. So I added this line to my .xinitrc
exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session openbox
I also tried it with --auto-syntax and --sh-syntax.
I also tried xfce and fluxbox.
In all above casses both BMPx and Tapioca complained with :
beep-media-player-2: Couldn't connect to session bus: Unable to determine the address of the message bus
unless launched with dbus-launch.
And dbus-montior claimed there's no bus
I tried it also while running the dbus daemon and while not running it...
when I do
I get nothing but when I run dbus-launch with no paramaters in a xterm I get :
I'm running out of ideas, is anyone experiencing the same problems and/or knows the solution?
I have also troubles with tapioca and the dbus.
** (tapiocaui:19304): WARNING **: failed to open connection to dbus
I'm running kde 3.5.2-2 and started dbus and then hal before I restarted X.
