Pitti, I believe you are working on this? Opening this bug so there's a note on the versions page.

https://launchpad.net/~pitti/+archive/ppa has a D-BUS 1.5.12 merge with Debian. It's mostly working fine, but it makes some indicators disappear (or at least did so a few weeks ago when I tried it). Can you guys coordinate with DX the fixing of the indicators?

For dbus 1.6.0, the global menu doesn't work either.

i tried dbus-1.6.2 from debian (but without systemd build-dep and with debian/dbus.upstart). indicators and global menu are still broken. the ppa with 1.6.2 is here: https://launchpad.net/~toabctl/+archive/testing

Here's a 'proper' merge (with disabled upstart-activation patches)


which also has the noted effects. I'll see about getting DX to look at it.

seb128 found that http://cgit.freedesktop.org/dbus/dbus/commit/?id=a940e7b1d1b6b832e2ec732a11f495240156fb31 was the commit which broke it. We'll probably revert that for now and get the proper fix (likely in Unity) ASAP.

Neil said he would have a look to the unity-panel-service issues, something there seems to be confused by the eavesdropping limitations

This bug was fixed in the package unity - 6.0.0-0ubuntu6

  * Don't specify a specific destination for the dbus signals, that
    creates issues with the new dbus eavedropping behaviour,
    thanks Neil J. Patel for the fix! Required for the new dbus version.

This bug was fixed in the package dbus - 1.6.4-1ubuntu1

dbus (1.6.4-1ubuntu1) quantal-proposed; urgency=low

  * Upload to quantal (lp: #1014850)
  * debian/control:
    - use "Breaks: unity-services (<< 6.0.0-0ubuntu6)", the new dbus
      eavedropping protection was creating issues with previous versions

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * Merge with Debian experimental for the new stable series. Remaining Ubuntu
    - Install binaries into / rather than /usr:
      + debian/rules: Set --exec-prefix=/
      + debian/dbus.install, debian/dbus-x11.install: Install from /bin
    - Use upstart to start:
      + Add debian/dbus.upstart.
      + debian/control: Add upstart dependency.
      + debian/dbus.postinst: Use upstart call instead of invoking the init.d
        script for checking if we are already running.
      + debian/control: versioned dependency on netbase that emits the new
        deconfiguring-networking event used in upstart script.
    - 20_system_conf_limit.patch: Increase max_match_rules_per_connection for
      the system bus to 5000 (LP #454093)
    - 81-session.conf-timeout.patch: Raise the service startup timeout from 25
      to 60 seconds. It may be too short on the live CD with slow machines.
    - Add 0001-activation-allow-for-more-variation-than-just-system.patch,
      0005-activation-implement-upstart-activation.patch: Patches from Scott
      James Remnant to implement Upstart service activation. Not upstream.
      Disable patches since they do not apply and this facility is unused
  * Remove systemd BDs; not appropriate for Ubuntu.

dbus (1.6.4-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * gbp.conf: switch to experimental branch
  * New upstream stable release
    - remove incorrect assertion and have correct default for developer mode
      (Closes: #680027, differently)

dbus (1.6.2-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Disable "developer mode", which was intended to be off-by-default,
    but was incorrectly on-by-default in 1.6.2, causing an incorrect
    assertion to be hit when starting fcitx before dbus-launch.
    (Closes: #680027)

dbus (1.6.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream stable release
    - dbus-launch --exit-with-session no longer monitors its stdin if
      run under X11 (Closes: #453755)
  * Remove the workaround for #453755 from dbus-Xsession

dbus (1.6.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Merge from "experimental" (1.5.12 was accidentally uploaded to unstable)
  * New upstream stable release
  * debian/watch: only match stable (0.even.x) releases

dbus (1.5.12-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Merge from unstable
  * New upstream release
    - adds new API
  * Standards-Version: 3.9.3 (no changes)
  * Remove lintian override for #629648, hopefully the ftpmasters are using
    lintian 2.5.1 by now
  * Add lintian overrides for the empty directories we (intentionally) ship
  * Don't run dh_makeshlibs on dbus-1-dbg, nothing should be linking to its
    extra-debug-enabled build of the ...
