NAME

pbbcmd - command line tool to communicate with pbbuttonsd.

SYNOPSIS

pbbcmd [-hvi] <command>
pbbcmd [-hvi] query <tag>
pbbcmd [-hvi] config <tag> <data>

DESCRIPTION

pbbcmd is a tool to communicate with pbbuttonsd. It is possible to send single commands to the daemon or ask it for certain information. It is useful for scripts or for debugging and therefore the results of queries and arguments for config operations are very basic and raw. Pbbcmd won't interpret the results for you.

OPTIONS

pbbcmd accepts the following options:
-h, --help
Show summary of options.
-v, --version
Show version of pbbcmd.
-i, --ignore
With this option given pbbcmd will not wait for answers from the server after a config command has been sent. It returns immediately.

The command tells pbbcmd what should be done. Only the commands 'query' and 'config' needs additional arguments. All other stand for themselves. Pbbcmd supports following commands:

query

Reads parameters from the server and print them to terminal. This command needs the name of the desired parameter as argument. Multiple names are possible. See chapter TAGS for possible parameter names.
config

Change server options on the fly. This command needs the parameter name and the new value as command. Multiple parameters can be changed at once. See chapter TAGS for possible parameter names.
listclients

Receiving this command pbbuttonsd will return a list of currently attached clients. Pbbcmd will print a table containg useful information of these clients.
saveconfig

Save current configuration to disc. This works only if all security conditions were fulfilled and pbbuttond has config writing enabled.
reinit

This command triggers reinitialization setting of hardware components under control of pbbuttonsd (for example the trackpad and keyboard on PowerBooks). The PMCS script to set the power policy will also be lauched after this command.
ejectcd

Eject the CDROM.
sleep

Suspend the machine to RAM.
hibernate

Suspend the machine to Disk. This will trigger the kernel to write the memory and all necessary process data to swap space on disk and shut the machine down. After next reboot, the system should be restored in state the system had at the time this command was triggered. This might not work on all machines. Please read the kernel documentation for more details.

TAGS to use with 'config' or 'query'

Not every tag could be used with config and query operations. The 'List of Tags' below shows how each tag could be used. The structure of this list is described as follows:
<TAGNAME> <datatype> <usable with>

<description>

The <datatype> field shows what sort of data is returned or expected. Following datatypes are defined:

command
This tag is a command and the argument wouldn't be evaluated. Nevertheless the config operation expected one and 0 would be ok in this cases.
string
String of characters. The string must be quoted if it contains white spaces.
integer
32-bit integer values. The description would say if the value range was restricted.
bool
A boolean value. A '0' means false and a '1' means true. Any other values are invalid.
keycode
A keycode is an 8-bit integer. Each keycode has it's equivalent key on the keyboard. Don't confuse this with ASCII code. You could get keycodes with the program showkey.
modifier
A modifier is an bit-field with one bit for each modifier key: Bit 0 = 1 = shift, bit 1 = 2 = alt and bit 2 = 4 = ctrl. The three modifiers cold be combined through adding their single values. In result we get an value between 0 and 7.

LIST OF TAGS for query and config

TAG_AUTORESCAN bool config/query

Enable or disable periodically scan of event devices to detect new or lost keyboards automatically.
TAG_VERSION string query

Get version string of the server

Get or set the timeout for launched scripts or helper programs.
TAG_TIMEREMAINING integer query

Get the current time in seconds the battery will last.
TAG_CHARGETIME integer query

Get the time until the batteries are fully charged.
This option would only be available, if pbbuttonsd was compiled with IBaM support.
TAG_POWERSOURCE bool query

Get the current power source the machine is running on. '0' represents battery and '1' stands for AC.
TAG_SLEEPSUPPORTED bool query

Check if the machine supports sleep mode. The result is '0' if not.
TAG_PMUDEVICE string config/query

Get or set the pmu device. This is only useful on Apple PowerBooks and compatible.
TAG_ADBDEVICE string config/query

Get or Set the ADB device. This is only useful on Apple PowerBooks and compatible.
TAG_TPMODEUPKEY keycode config/query

Get or set keycode used for trackpad mode up.
TAG_TPMODEUPMOD modifier config/query

Get or Set modifier used with TPMODEUPKEY.
TAG_TPMODEDOWNKEY keycode config/query

Get or set keycode used for trackpad mode down.
TAG_TPMODEDOWNMOD modifier config/query

Get or set modifier used with TPMODEDOWNKEY.
TAG_TPMODE integer config/query

Get or set trackpad mode. Supported modes are: 0=notap, 1=tap, 2=drag. All other values are invalid.
TAG_NOTAPTYPING bool config/query

Enable or disable trackpad configuration while typing. Normally the trackpad would stay in it's current mode if key on the keyboard were hit. With this option enabled the trackpad will be configured to 'notap' while the keyboard is used.
TAG_KBDMODE integer config/query

Get or set the keyboard mode. Supported values are 0=disabled, 1=fkeyslast and 2=fkeysfirst. All other values are invalid.

Fn can only be disabled on PowerBooks with an USB keyboard. If you own a machine with a ADB keyboard you have to choose 'fkeyslast' or 'fkeysfirst'. PBButtonsd will force this setting to 'fkeyslast' if necessary.

TAG_BATTERYPRESENT integer query

Get the batteries currently present. The return value is bit-oriented. Bit 0 shows left battery and bit 1 shows the right battery. A value of 1 means only the left battery is plugged in, a value of 3 means both batteries are available.
