NAME

upstart-dbus-bridge - Bridge between Upstart and D-Bus

SYNOPSIS

upstart-dbus-bridge [OPTIONS]...

DESCRIPTION

upstart-dbus-bridge receives information about D-Bus signals and creates init(8) events for them.
With no options, monitors signals on the D-Bus system bus and emits an Upstart event called dbus via a D-Bus system bus connection to Upstart.
When run with --user, monitors signals on the users D-Bus session bus and emits Upstart events via the private D-Bus connection to the users Session Init.
See dbus-daemon(1) and for further details.

OPTIONS

--always
Always emit events on receipt of D-Bus signal regardless of whether jobs care about them.
--daemon
Detach and run in the background.
--debug Enable debugging output.
--help Show brief usage summary.
--session
Monitor signals on the D-Bus session bus.
--system
Monitor signals on the D-Bus system bus.
--user User-session mode: connect to Upstart via the user session rather than over the D-Bus system bus.
--bus-name
Set a name for the bus to be passed as an additional argument to the event under the property BUS. Used to distinguish multiple D-Bus bridges.
--verbose
Enable verbose output.

RESTRICTIONS

D-Bus signals emitted by Upstart itself are ignored.
