There's a page on the dbus homepage which lists implementations (see
those marked M). It's unfortunately down at the moment but here's the
google cache:


The README in the the mono directory of the dbus source has provides a
brief explanation. There's also a couple of examples in the example

In fact, if it's plain old RPC then there really isn't much you need to
add to your code other than some MethodAttributes on the server side and
a couple of lines to get your object on the client side. 

If, on the other hand, you want to write some client code which uses an
existing dbus service then you just need to write stubs for the server-
side functions. In the HAL source tree on freedesktop.org is a module
called hal-sharp which does this.

For a larger example you could look at permovi
<http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfmod/project/?permovi> although it's
fairly non-functional and probably a little hard to see the woods for
the trees.
