mc-wait-for-name – run until a D-Bus name appears on the session bus
mc-wait-for-name runs until a bus name appears, then exits success‐
fully. This can be used as a service-activation helper for a bus name
that is not directly activatable, but will be provided automatically
(after a while) by the desktop session.
0 The bus name eventually appeared.
Invocation error (too many or too few arguments, or the bus name
given was not a syntactically valid well-known bus name).
mc-wait-for-name was unable to connect to the session bus.
The name did not appear within a reasonable time.
There are no additional command-line options.
The “reasonable time” to wait is currently hard-coded.
