kdbus is a D-BUS service browser for KDE. Is like kdcop, but for D-BUS instead.

kdbus is being developed in KDE SVN, at /trunk/playground/utils/kdbus.

A few things which need attention:

The GUI is kinda ugly
Only a subset of the D-BUS spec is used; e.g., properties can’t be read or set. That being said, kdbus supports enough to be able to use every method exported by dbus-daemon.

Another important thing to note is that only D-BUS objects which implement org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable.Introspect can be enumerated by kdbus. Out of the small set of D-BUS aware programs, the subset which implement that interface is even smaller, so at the moment, you won’t be able to do anything to most D-BUS apps with kdbus.

D-BUS. You don’t need D-BUS Qt bindings.

What's New in This Release:
Fix compilation for dbus-0.50.
