Binary packages built by this source

dbus: simple interprocess messaging system (daemon and utilities)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 D-Bus supports broadcast messages, asynchronous messages (thus
 decreasing latency), authentication, and more. It is designed to be
 low-overhead; messages are sent using a binary protocol, not using
 XML. D-Bus also supports a method call mapping for its messages, but
 it is not required; this makes using the system quite simple.
 .
 It comes with several bindings, including GLib, Python, Qt and Java.
 .
 This package contains the D-Bus daemon and related utilities.
 .
 The client-side library can be found in the libdbus-1-3 package, as it is no
 longer contained in this package.

dbus-1-doc: simple interprocess messaging system (documentation)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 This package contains the API documentation for D-Bus, as well as
 the protocol specification.
 .
 See the dbus description for more information about D-Bus in general.

dbus-dbgsym: debug symbols for dbus
dbus-tests: simple interprocess messaging system (test infrastructure)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 This package provides automated and manual tests for D-Bus, and the
 dbus-test-tool utility. It also provides copies of the D-Bus libraries and
 executables compiled with extra debug information and logging.
 .
 See the dbus package description for more information about D-Bus in general.

dbus-tests-dbgsym: debug symbols for dbus-tests
dbus-udeb: simple interprocess messaging system (minimal runtime)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 .
 This package is a minimal version of the dbus and dbus-x11 packages,
 for use in the Debian installer. It can run a session bus, but is not
 suitable for use as a system bus.

dbus-user-session: simple interprocess messaging system (systemd --user integration)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 On systemd systems, this package opts in to the session model in which
 a user's session starts the first time they log in, and does not end
 until all their login sessions have ended. This model merges all
 parallel non-graphical login sessions (text mode, ssh, cron, etc.), and up
 to one graphical session, into a single "user-session" or "super-session"
 within which all background D-Bus services are shared.
 .
 Multiple graphical sessions per user are not currently supported in this
 mode; as a result, it is particularly suitable for gdm, which responds to
 requests to open a parallel graphical session by switching to the existing
 graphical session and unlocking it.
 .
 To retain dbus' traditional session semantics, in which login sessions
 are artificially isolated from each other, remove this package and install
 dbus-x11 instead.
 .
 See the dbus package description for more information about D-Bus in general.

dbus-x11: simple interprocess messaging system (X11 deps)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 This package contains the dbus-launch utility which is necessary for
 packages using a D-Bus session bus.
 .
 See the dbus description for more information about D-Bus in general.

dbus-x11-dbgsym: debug symbols for dbus-x11
libdbus-1-3: simple interprocess messaging system (library)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 D-Bus supports broadcast messages, asynchronous messages (thus
 decreasing latency), authentication, and more. It is designed to be
 low-overhead; messages are sent using a binary protocol, not using
 XML. D-Bus also supports a method call mapping for its messages, but
 it is not required; this makes using the system quite simple.
 .
 It comes with several bindings, including GLib, Python, Qt and Java.
 .
 The daemon can be found in the dbus package.

libdbus-1-3-dbgsym: debug symbols for libdbus-1-3
libdbus-1-3-udeb: simple interprocess messaging system (minimal library)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 .
 This package is a minimal version of the libdbus-1-3 package,
 for use in the Debian installer.

libdbus-1-dev: simple interprocess messaging system (development headers)

 D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
 Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
 terms of complexity.
 .
 See the dbus description for more information about D-Bus in general.
