Existing Interfaces

This page will describe existing interfaces that you can use in Fedora.

  • Disks
    • udisks (previously named DeviceKit-disks)
  • Power
    • upower (previously named DeviceKit-power)
  • Users
  • Printers
    • CUPS can be configured using extensions to the IPP protocol
    • cups-pk-helper adds PolicyKit support on top of the existing IPP mechanism
    • system-config-printer Python module "cupshelpers" provides useful functions for configuring CUPS servers
      • Would love to refactor some of that as a D-Bus service, especially the cupshelpers.PPDs module
  • Networking
  • Notification
  • Sessions
    • ConsoleKit is a framework for defining and tracking users, login sessions, and seats.
