I am trying to write a basic volume application. Since I'm writing this in Ruby I don't want to extend the C library or use ffi, instead I trying to write this with ruby-dbus I got the Address Property with /org/pulse_audio/server_lookup1 but the file the address points to doesn't exist. Is Pulse Audio properly configured for dbus?

I found that the DBus Module was not loaded.

if you're using Ruby you can call:

%x{pacmd load-module module-dbus-protocol}

Works on the command line too:

pacmd load-module module-dbus-protocol

I think /org/pulse_audio/server_lookup1 is an internal path for PulseAudio's ServerLookup1 Object. You will not find this "file" in your computer's directory.
