Re: emacs-23.2-3 and DBus

Maybe you could also try to send a notification:

(notifications-notify :title "Hello world" :body "from Emacs")

This results in the error "The name org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files", as you predicted. So I don't think it points to any problem with D-BUS support in Emacs.

I wanted to try myself, and I've downloaded emacs-23.2-3 from the curr branch. When I do start it via "/usr/bin/emacs -Q -l dbus", it results in the well known frozen state :-(

Works fine for me.

Switching to the exp branch, there is no other package offer.

That's right. emacs-23.2-3 is current, and there is no experimental version.

The binary has the following checksum:

$ cksum /usr/bin/emacs
658187514 16254990 /usr/bin/emacs

That's not actually the binary; it's a symlink that resolves to either /usr/bin/emacs-X11.exe or /usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe, depending on whether or not you've installed the emacs-X11 package. Is it possible that you upgraded the emacs package but are still using an old emacs-X11? If not, I don't know what the problem could be. If you can't figure it out, you could try giving the command

cygcheck -svr > cygcheck.out

and sending the resulting cygcheck.out as an attachment. Maybe I (or someone) will be able to spot something.
