DESCRIPTION

mc-wait-for-name runs until a bus name appears, then exits success‐

that is not directly activatable, but will be provided automatically
(after a while) by the desktop session.

EXIT STATUS
0 The bus name eventually appeared.

given was not a syntactically valid well-known bus name).

69 (EX_UNAVAILABLE)
mc-wait-for-name was unable to connect to the session bus.

75 (EX_TEMPFAIL)
The name did not appear within a reasonable time.

OPTIONS

BUGS

The “reasonable time” to wait is currently hard-coded.
