Implemented Interfaces

PolkitUnixSession implements PolkitSubject, GInitable and GAsyncInitable.

Description

An object that represents an user session.

The session id is an opaque string obtained from ConsoleKit.

Functions

polkit_unix_session_new ()

PolkitSubject *
polkit_unix_session_new (const gchar *session_id);

Creates a new PolkitUnixSession for session_id .

Parameters

session_id

The session id.

 

Returns

A PolkitUnixSession. Free with g_object_unref().

[transfer full]


polkit_unix_session_new_for_process ()

void
polkit_unix_session_new_for_process (gint pid,
                                     GCancellable *cancellable,
                                     GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                                     gpointer user_data);

Asynchronously creates a new PolkitUnixSession object for the process with process id pid .

When the operation is finished, callback will be invoked in the

thread-default main loop of the thread you are calling this method

from. You can then call polkit_unix_session_new_for_process_finish() to get the result of the operation.

This method constructs the object asynchronously, for the synchronous and blocking version use polkit_unix_session_new_for_process_sync().

Parameters

pid

The process id of the process to get the session for.

 

cancellable

A GCancellable or NULL.

[allow-none]

callback

A GAsyncReadyCallback to call when the request is satisfied

 

user_data

The data to pass to callback .

 

polkit_unix_session_new_for_process_finish ()

PolkitSubject *
polkit_unix_session_new_for_process_finish
                               (GAsyncResult *res,
                                GError **error);

Finishes constructing a PolkitSubject for a process id.

Parameters

res

A GAsyncResult obtained from the GAsyncReadyCallback passed to polkit_unix_session_new_for_process().

 

error

Return location for error.

[allow-none]

Returns

A PolkitUnixSession for the pid passed to polkit_unix_session_new_for_process() or NULL if error is set. Free with g_object_unref().

polkit_unix_session_new_for_process_sync ()

PolkitSubject *
polkit_unix_session_new_for_process_sync
                               (gint pid,
                                GCancellable *cancellable,
                                GError **error);

Creates a new PolkitUnixSession for the process with process id pid .

This is a synchronous call - the calling thread is blocked until a reply is received. For the asynchronous version, see polkit_unix_session_new_for_process().

Parameters

pid

The process id of the process to get the session for.

 

cancellable

A GCancellable or NULL.

[allow-none]

error

Return location for error.

[allow-none]

Returns

A PolkitUnixSession for pid or NULL if error is set. Free with g_object_unref().

[allow-none][transfer full]


polkit_unix_session_get_session_id ()

const gchar *
polkit_unix_session_get_session_id (PolkitUnixSession *session);

Gets the session id for session .

Parameters

session

A PolkitUnixSession.

 

Returns

The session id for session . Do not free this string, it is owned by session .


polkit_unix_session_set_session_id ()

void
polkit_unix_session_set_session_id (PolkitUnixSession *session,
                                    const gchar *session_id);

Sets the session id for session to session_id .

Parameters

session

A PolkitUnixSession.

 

session_id

The session id.
