Has anybody used D-Bus to communicate with and/or control instruments using Labview?

Hi All,
Using Labview, I'd like to control some devices that already use D-Bus. I don't know anything about Dbus yet, but I was wondering if anybody has done this? Would it be possible to create something like the instrument drivers for GPIB - only in the Dbus protocol? Just some vauge questions before I get really deep into this. Thanks!

DBus is a BSH specific bus protocol, I have done some implementations.

Please contact me directly (CODI)

This seems to be an old post but hopefully you are still around. it seems like finally somebody has used D-Bus with LV. i couldn't find your contact info to send you an email directly. It would be great if you can share your suggestions or if you have any comments. Please email me at mani99_ AT or let me know how to get in touch with you.
