    QDBus - Cannot register Service name on System Bus


    How do I register service on to the System Bus.

    qDebug() << "Failed to register alias Service on DBus";

    The connection happens correctly and everything works, the only trouble is that I can't register a service. Calling that on the session Bus works as expected, but the system Bus simply refuses to register it.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    There is an old thread on the same issue, but no solution given

    I have the same issue that you do with the System Bus.

    Have you found a solution?

    Old post but I was stuck with the same problem, so for anyone else interested the solution is you need to create a DBus policy conf.

    For example:


    <!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
     "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
      <!-- Only user root can own the foo helper -->
      <policy user="root">
        <allow own="org.kde.foohelper"/>
      <!-- Allow anyone to call into the service - we'll reject callers using PolicyKit -->
      <policy context="default">
        <allow send_interface="org.kde.foohelper"/>
        <allow receive_sender="org.kde.foohelper"/>
        <allow receive_interface="org.kde.foohelper"/>
