Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a graphical tool or maybe a command-line one that lists all the messages and parameters/arguments that I can send to a DBUS-enabled program?? I really want to try scripting some DBUS things but I can hardly find any documentation for the DBUS capabilities of most applications.

I've been using dbus-monitor, which is really useful. It provides a --profile mode, which provides a quick summary of all the signals bouncing around.

Another useful D-Bus debugging and profiling tool is Bustle.
