    Which 'dbus' directory are they reffering to ?

    This could be a simple qustion for somebody who done this before to answer. ( Please no RTFM suggestions at this point) This is a text of original dbus session,conf file - located in /etc/dbus-1 folder. It clearly REPLACES the original session.conf with /usr/DBUS/share/dbus-1/session.conf...

    Where to change DBus naming "security"?

    The enclosed error tells me to change dbus "configuration" file. There are few problems with such laconic error. #1 There are no such things as single "configuration " files. #2 What I assume is main x.config ( NOT configuration - just conf ) has been deleted and replaced by others in...

    Making "system" calls from within C++ code

    I like to use “system” calls to utilize “bluetoothctl” tool in C++ code. I have no problem with this code system("bluetoothctl help | tee /tmp/A_test_file.txt >&2"); It works as expected , outputting “help” to a file and to stderr. Then it returns to “normal” C++ code processing. I...

    Implementing bluetooth in C++

    I am lacking some basic understanding of terminology when it comes to implementing Bluetooth. Would it be OK to ask few general questions here ? I am essentially basing my C++ code on "bluez" package - specifically using "hcI " functions. ( I may do d-bus later ) I am trying to make sense...

    How to delete "uninstalled" package

    I may be jumping the gun, but may need some pointers before I start. I used "checkinstall" and it did not finished. Brief look at the error posted tells me there is conflict with depended package used by another (package). The problem is - dpkg lists the "uninstalled" failed / package and apt...

    Why two diffretn answers for "architecture"?

    Why two different answers for "architecture"? I get "armhf" is architecture used for mobile devices from the web. I do not detect any wheels on my Raspberry Pi so why "mobile"?

    Linux /usr/ local folders - silly question

    "The /usr/local directory is where locally compiled applications install to by default – this prevents them from mucking up the rest of the system." So when I run "default configure" - which is pretty much standard way to get from zipped source to executable - why do some options specify...
