<title>Owning bus names</title>

Using dbus-glib, you typically call RequestName manually
to own a name, like in the following excerpt:
<informalexample><programlisting><![CDATA[
static gboolean
acquire_name_on_proxy (DBusGProxy *system_bus_proxy,
gboolean replace)
{
GError *error;
guint result;
gboolean res;
gboolean ret;
guint flags;
ret = FALSE;
flags = DBUS_NAME_FLAG_ALLOW_REPLACEMENT;
if (replace)
flags |= DBUS_NAME_FLAG_REPLACE_EXISTING;
error = NULL;
res = dbus_g_proxy_call (system_bus_proxy,
"RequestName",
&error,
G_TYPE_STRING,
NAME_TO_CLAIM,
G_TYPE_UINT,
flags,
G_TYPE_INVALID,
G_TYPE_UINT,
&result,
G_TYPE_INVALID);
if (!res) {
if (error != NULL) {
g_warning ("Failed to acquire %s: %s",
NAME_TO_CLAIM, error->message);
g_error_free (error);
}
else {
g_warning ("Failed to acquire %s", NAME_TO_CLAIM);
}
goto out;
}
if (result != DBUS_REQUEST_NAME_REPLY_PRIMARY_OWNER) {
if (error != NULL) {
g_warning ("Failed to acquire %s: %s",
NAME_TO_CLAIM, error->message);
g_error_free (error);
}
else {
g_warning ("Failed to acquire %s", NAME_TO_CLAIM);
}
goto out;
}
dbus_g_proxy_add_signal (system_bus_proxy, "NameLost",
G_TYPE_STRING, G_TYPE_INVALID);
dbus_g_proxy_connect_signal (system_bus_proxy, "NameLost",
G_CALLBACK (name_lost), NULL, NULL);
ret = TRUE;
out:
return ret;
}

While you can do things this way with GDBus too, it is much nicer
to use the high-level API for this:
