qdbus

a communication-interface for qt-based applications

qdbus [--system] [--literal] [servicename] [path] [method] [args]

qdbus provides an interface to Qt-based applications communicating over D-Bus. See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information about the big picture.

By default qdbus will list all service names of services that are running and you can manipulate at the moment. You can also manipulate and run several types of methods for each dbus-enabled application.

servicename
the service to connect to (e.g., org.freedesktop.DBus)
path
the path to the object (e.g., /)
method
the method to call, with or without the interface
args
arguments to pass to the call

--system
connect to the system bus
--literal
print replies literally

Here is an example of using qdbus to list all status information about a service: % qdbus org.ktorrent.ktorrent

dbus-cleanup-sockets(1), dbus-launch(1), dbus-send(1), dbus-daemon(1), dbus-monitor(1), dbus-uuidgen(1)
