DESCRIPTION

mc-tool’s usage depends on its first argument (the "command")

    SPECIFYING ACCOUNTS

Where an account name is needed, it may be given as a full object path (e.g. /org/freedesktop/Telepathy/Account/gabble/jabber/example), or as the unique account-specific suffix (e.g. gabble/jabber/example).

    SPECIFYING PARAMETER SETTINGS

Many commands take arguments that represent Telepathy connection manager parameters (see the Telepathy Specification for details of these). Each argument has the following form:

TYPE:NAME=VALUE

where TYPE is either int, uint, bool, or string (other parameter types exist, but are currently unsupported by mc-tool), NAME is the name of the connection manager parameter (e.g. account or password), and VALUE is the parameter’s value (with integers in decimal, and booleans as 0 or 1).

The update command also accepts arguments of the form clear:NAME which delete the named parameter from the account configuration.

    LIST

mc-tool list lists the available accounts.

    ADD

mc-tool add adds an account. The connection manager and protocol can either be given as the name of a Mission Control profile, (e.g. gtalk), or as a slash-separated connection manager name and protocol (e.g. gabble/jabber).

    DISPLAY

mc-tool display ACCOUNT DISPLAY-NAME sets the DisplayName property of ACCOUNT to DISPLAY-NAME.

    NICK

mc-tool nick ACCOUNT NICKNAME sets the Nickname property of ACCOUNT to NICKNAME.

    SERVICE

mc-tool service ACCOUNT SERVICE-NAME sets the Service property of ACCOUNT to SERVICE-NAME.

    ICON

mc-tool icon ACCOUNT ICON sets the Icon property of ACCOUNT to ICON.

    SHOW

mc-tool show ACCOUNT shows information about ACCOUNT.

    GET

mc-tool get ACCOUNT PARAMETER [PARAMETER...] shows the values of the given parameters of ACCOUNT.

    ENABLE

mc-tool enable ACCOUNT sets the Enabled property of ACCOUNT to True.

    DISABLE

mc-tool disable ACCOUNT sets the Enabled property of ACCOUNT to False.

    AUTO-PRESENCE

mc-tool auto-presence ACCOUNT STATUS [MESSAGE] sets the AutomaticPresence property of ACCOUNT to STATUS with optional message MESSAGE.

    REQUEST

mc-tool request ACCOUNT STATUS [MESSAGE] sets the RequestedPresence property of ACCOUNT to STATUS with optional message MESSAGE; this is how you tell an account to connect or go offline, for example.

    AUTO-CONNECT

mc-tool auto-connect ACCOUNT on sets the ConnectAutomatically property of ACCOUNT to True. mc-tool auto-connect ACCOUNT off sets it to False.
