There seems to be a bug in Net::DBus::ASyncReply, which makes it impossible to make nonblocking dbus requests. Namely, is_ready() always seem to return false, no matter what. $asyncreply->wait_for_result() however seems to work as expected. I basically re-created your example, almost exactly as it is, inserting real values. Tested on two machines: Archlinux, 2.6.25-ARCH perl version v5.10.0 built for i686-linux-thread-multi Net::DBus version: 0.33.6 ubuntu 8.04, 2.6.24-19-generic perl version v5.8.8 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi Net::DBus version: 0.33.5 In the attached example, i'm trying to talk to pidgin, which should return an integer as response. this works just fine using the blocking calls, however, i couldn't get the nonblocking ones to work.
