DBus is like a remote control for your programs. You no longer need to click, you can control a program from within a script or the console. This topic demonstrates how you can get to know more about your dbus interfaces.
dbus ... org.freedesktop.DBus org.kde.karm_18291
okay, we have a program running that we can control, it is named org.kde.karm_18291. Let's see what it provides:
from the output, we can tell that one node is /Karm. Let's see what we can do with it:
dbus org.kde.karm_18291 /Karm ... method void org.kde.karm.Karm.quit()
let's try to call the method quit - it will probably quit the running application:
dbus org.kde.karm_18291 /Karm org.kde.karm.Karm.quit
and it quits the application!
