[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] activating individual control panel applets

Hi all.

I am trying to activate the display control panel applet via dbus and I
am kind of stuck.

Entering the command

   dbus-send --session --print-reply /com/nokia/controlpanel/rpc \
     com.bokia.controlpanel.rpc.run_applet \
     string:disp_ap_application_title boolean:true

prints the following error:
  Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "run_applet"
  with signature "sb" on interface "com.nokia.controlpanel.rpc" doesn't

Since this signature is what is checked in hcp_rpc_handler() I right now
guess that I am missing something else wrong. Also, since the method
apparently is not found, I suspect that the problem is not with the
arguments itself (although I am pretty unsure about the

Can anybody help me out? Some C-Code to do the same would help me a lot
as well...


PS: Oh, btw. If I do this command the control panel crashes:
   dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest=com.nokia.controlpanel \
     /com/nokia/controlpanel/rpc com.bokia.controlpanel.run_applet \
     string:disp_ap_application_title boolean:true
