Currently there is no dbus-support in lcdproc as Markus said. Of course
support could be added to the lcdproc-daemon itself. Another way is to
write a client for lcdproc that is also connected to dbus and reacts on
dbus-messages, making lcdproc show them on the display. This way, dbus
doesn't need to be in lcdproc's core.
Please don't conclude that I don't want dbus in lcdproc - I would really
like that but it should be done in a clean way with a specification and
covering all of the features the TCP-connection has now. Doing this as
"dirty hack for a custumer" might not have that much future.
