Yes, they will work. systemd provides systemd-bus-proxyd which is automatically launched by systemd for any dbus1 client. It acts as a bidirectional proxy, allowing "legacy" dbus1 users to work in the absence of the traditional dbus-daemon.

I don't know if QtDbus will be ported to support kdbus natively. I do know that there is already work ongoing to add support to gdbus, and there's sd-bus, distributed with systemd, which supports both dbus1 and kdbus.

@falconindy: thanks. This won't work with applications based on QtDbus though, right?

@AnAkkk: You cannot possibly use a release of systemd with kdbus -- the ABI is under heavy flux. You *must* follow the git repos of systemd and kdbus in lockstep (and yes, build with --enable-kdbus).

@drevilt: I'm not sure how else I can explain to you that Greg's repository is a mirror without any automatic push mechanism. It lags behind the googlecode repo. When there's an ABI break in kdbus, people following Greg's repo find their way into #systemd on freenode and ask why kdbus isn't working. Inevitably, it's because they thought their kdbus repo was up to date, when it really wasn't.

Thanks, it compiles fine now.

Does it just need systemd to be recompiled with -enable-kdbus to work?

i have added the version-string into the /usr/src/* path. that should help.

@falconindy to me it looks like both repositories have the same commits. What is the difference?

The PKGBUILD was updated after my last message, now it creates the package but it fails to install:

Error! Could not find module source directory.
Directory: /usr/src/kdbus-2121.77d54a9 does not exist.

Please do not follow this repo -- it lags behind the real upstream at:

It fails to create the package due to the "tools" folder which was added.

I am running 3.15-7 and this package currently will not load properly... oddly depending on the path I take, I sometimes get a kdbus.ko file which loads, but nothing works and all the tests fail.

I had to downgrade the kdbus version from the latest git version(419166844240515e380fd90e00373783e5aa6b89 at this moment) to commit hash e62195a - which is the one listed on this package.

In PKGBUILD, change:
package() {
cd "$srcdir/kdbus"
rm -fr test

package() {
cd "$srcdir/kdbus"
git checkout e62195a
rm -fr test

Also make sure if you build the test tools manually, make sure to compile the same git hash version!
