NAME

mc-wait-for-name - run until a D-Bus name appears on the session bus  

SYNOPSIS

mc-wait-for-name WELL-KNOWN-NAME

[D-BUS Service]
Name=org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Client.Something
Exec=/usr/bin/mc-wait-for-name org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Client.Something
 

DESCRIPTION

mc-wait-for-name runs until a bus name appears, then exits successfully. This can be used as a service-activation helper for a bus name that is not directly activatable, but will be provided automatically (after a while) by the desktop session.  

EXIT STATUS

0
The bus name eventually appeared.
64 (EX_USAGE)
Invocation error (too many or too few arguments, or the bus name given was not a syntactically valid well-known bus name).
69 (EX_UNAVAILABLE)
mc-wait-for-name was unable to connect to the session bus.
75 (EX_TEMPFAIL)
The name did not appear within a reasonable time.
 

OPTIONS

There are no additional command-line options.  

BUGS

The "reasonable time" to wait is currently hard-coded.
