DCOP(1)                     General Commands Manual                    DCOP(1)



NAME
       dcop -- Console DCOP client

SYNOPSIS
       dcop [options]  [application [function [arg1] [arg2] ... ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the dcop command.

       dcop is a console DCOP (Desktop Communications Protocol) client.

OPTIONS
       This  program  follows  the  usual  GNU  command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (`-').   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.

       --all-sessions
                 Send  to  all  sessions found. Only works with the --user and
                 --all-users options.

       --all-users
                 Send the same DCOP call to all  users  with  a  running  DCOP
                 server.  Only failed calls to existing DCOP servers will gen-
                 erate an error message. If no DCOP  server  is  available  at
                 all, no error will be generated.

       --help    Show help about options.

       --list-sessions
                 List all active KDE session for a user or all users.

       --pipe    Call DCOP for each line read from stdin.

       --session session
                 Send  to  the given KDE session. This option can only be used
                 in combination with the --user option.

       --user user
                 Connect to the given user's DCOP  server.  This  option  will
                 ignore  the  values  of  the environment vars $DCOPSERVER and
                 $ICEAUTHORITY, even if they are set. If  the  user  has  more
                 than  one  open session, you must also use one of the --list-
                 sessions, --session or --all-sessions command-line options.

EXAMPLES
       Return number of the current desktop, e.g. 2

              dcop kwin KWinInterface currentDesktop


       Jump to the next dektop

              dcop kwin KWinInterface nextDesktop
