#16992 new patch

Port libpurple Python scripts to pydbus and Python 2+3

Reported by: lew21 Owned by:
Milestone: Patches Needing Review Component: libpurple
Version: 2.10.12 Keywords:


All the scripts are currently using the "dbus-python" package. dbus-python is essentialy dead, has a incorrect API ("For compatibility reasons, its API involves a lot of type-guessing (despite "explicit is better than implicit" and "resist the temptation to guess").") and is based on unmantained libdbus-glib library.

pydbus is a modern, pythonic D-Bus library built on top of PyGI and GDBus:

Also, most of the scripts aren't currently supporting Python 3. This patch makes them support both Python versions at the same time.
