I tried again, with system_dbus running, then started kde, and I also saw the 
notification-daemon running. SimpleAgenda started up fine, and told me about 
the DBusBackend. In the preferences I chose the DBus Alarm backend. Then 
created an appointment, and told it to alarm me 15 minutes before, I chose the 
display method in the alarm editor. Then 15 minutes before, I was watching the 
screen, but nothing happened. Also nothing on the console from simpleagenda, no 
error/warning...
Is there a dbus-send example command I could use to see whether it would work 
generally?
