dcop [options] [application [function [arg1] [arg2] ... ] ]
This manual page documents briefly the dcop command.
dcop is a console DCOP (Desktop Communications Protocol) client.
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (‘-’). A summary of options is
Send to all sessions found. Only works with the --user and
Send the same DCOP call to all users with a running DCOP
server. Only failed calls to existing DCOP servers will
generate an error message. If no DCOP server is available at
all, no error will be generated.
--help Show help about options.
List all active KDE session for a user or all users.
--pipe Call DCOP for each line read from stdin.
Send to the given KDE session. This option can only be used
in combination with the --user option.
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.
Return number of the current desktop, e.g. 2
dcop kwin KWinInterface currentDesktop
Jump to the next dektop
dcop kwin KWinInterface nextDesktop
