Hi,

Thanks! I totally forgot that one, I have set this property with all the rest of my dBus calls and I forgot it here.

Cheers,
Dylan

Hi,

With the risk of being totally wrong (I'm not really into DBus): according to the DbusInterface example in this page: [Nemo Mobile D-Bus QML Plugin — Nemo Mobile D-Bus QML Plugin 2.0.0 documentation](http://nemo-qml-plugin-dbus.readthedocs.io/en/latest/#dbusinterface), you should set signalsEnabled = true.

Hi,

I'm trying to listen to the MCE DBUS API for changes from the display and the radios.
For some reason, I won't receive the signals while writing on the /request endpoint works perfectly.
Someone an idea?

Seems that Slava can make this work: https://github.com/monich/harbour-lib/blob/master/src/HarbourSystemState.cpp

DBusInterface {

id

:

dbusFlight

bus

:

DBus.SystemBus

service

:

"com.nokia.mce"

path

:

"/com/nokia/mce/signal"

iface

:

"com.nokia.mce.signal"

//

Signals

function

radio_states_ind

(state)

{

console

.log(

JSON

.stringify(

"MCE

radio

state=

"

+

state

))

}

function

display_status_ind

(state)

{

console

.log(

JSON

.stringify(

"MCE

display

state=

"

+

state

))

}

}

Cheers,
Dylan

Yes, in that respect the changes are backward compatible. Whatever you are getting from GetProperties can be monitored by handling the PropertyChanged signals. You just need to be prepared that SetProperty and other calls (Connect, Disconnect etc.) may respond with net.connman.Error.PermissionDenied if your process doesn't have enough privileges for that.

The idea is that the user has to be reasonably sure that a random app pulled from Jolla Store doesn't mess with the system configuration (e.g. doesn't enable mobile data behind your back). Most likely, a similar fate is awaiting ofono and a few other D-Bus interfaces. Right now Jolla Store apps can do way too much over D-Bus. We (well, at least I) will try not to not break backward compatibility of D-Bus APIs except when the breakage is absolutely inevitable, even though those are not officially supported APIs.

And as always, all these changes are open for close examination at git.merproject.org.

Can I still monitor for changes and read properties? Can you give a more complete view what will change exactly? I am building an universal bridge between Python and QML with integrated Platform APIs based on DBUS and other stuff.

And keep in mind that starting with Sailfish OS 2.1.1 non-privileged processes won't be able to set this property (as well as do a few other connman things, e.g. manipulate the services). In order to be able to use the restricted D-Bus APIs you would have to ask the launcher to run your app under nemo:privileged but that would automatically disqualify the app from getting accepted to Jolla Store. Sailfish OS is getting security conscious!

You’re missing the property name. You need:

string:Powered variant:boolean:true

ref:
https://together.jolla.com/question/56437/i-would-like-to-toggle-internet-connectivity-via-terminal-with-dbus/

typedCall('SetProperty', [ {'type':'s', 'value': 'Powered'}, {'type':'v', 'value': valuet}], …);

Hi devs,

I'm playing around with the Nemo DBus QML plugin but I'm a little bit stuck when using the function typedCall().

DBusInterface

{

id

:

wifi

bus

:

DBus.SystemBus

service

:

'net.connman'

path

:

'/net/connman/technology/wifi'

iface

:

'net.connman.Technology'

signalsEnabled

:

true

function

setState

(powered)

{

var

value

=

powered

?

'true'

:

'false'

typedCall(

'SetProperty'

,

{

'type'

:

's'

,

'value'

:

value

},

function

()

{

console

.log(

'[INFO]

wifi

power

state set'

)

},

function

()

{

console

.log(

'[ERROR]

wifi

power

state failed'

)

})

}

function

propertyChanged

(name,

value)

{

console

.log(

"WiFi

changed

NAME=%1

VALUE=%2"

.arg(

name

).arg(

value

))

}

}

But it seems that I'm doing something wrong when I try to enable/disable wifi. It's my first attempts with DBus but I have managed to read the signals with the plugin without any issues.

Cheers,

Dylan
