Project Description

For D-Bus there are several command-line tools that differ in usability and availability.

  • dbus-send, the original tool from libdbus
  • busctl from systemd
  • gdbus from GLib

dbus-translate can be put in front of such a call to translate between these tools.

Example (spaces added to aid comparison):

$ dbus-translate dbus-send --print-reply --dest=a.service /object an.interface.Method string:an_arg
dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest\=a.service               /object          an.interface.Method string:an_arg
busctl    --user             call         a.service               /object          an.interface Method      s an_arg
gdbus     call --session           --dest a.service --object-path /object --method an.interface.Method      \"an_arg\"
