dcopstart(1) Start a KDE service and return its DCOP reference


dcopstart service [...]


dcopstart starts a KDE service (i.e. an application that is registered in the KDE system of .desktop files) and returns its reference for later use in shell scripts. If the service is not scriptable via DCOP, dcopstart returns nothing, but starts the service.
