KDE Infrared remote control problem.
i'm really confused why doesn't the kwin dbus method "org.kde.KWin.circulateDesktopApplications" works
while the other methods for changing desktop like "org.kde.KWin.nextDesktop" ... work !!
i use this command "dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.kde.kwin /KWin org.kde.KWin.nextDesktop"
with irexec and it's working perfectly
but this one "dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.kde.kwin /KWin org.kde.KWin.circulateDesktopApplications" does nothing.
i also tried using alt-tab and alt-f1 with irxevent. i don't know what i'm missing. if anyone has any ideas how i can control kwin with my remote control please help.
also does anyone know about a dbus method to start the K-menu simulating the pressing of alt-f1 and alt-tab on the keyboard or any other way that makes it possible to send those commands to the desktop from a remote control.
i have a working lirc and i'm happily controlling all the functionality i need of Kaffeine with my infrared remote control. but it would be great if i can control KDE too.
i'm using KDE 4.4 by the way.
