inpcontrol - InPerson control tool
inpcontrol is used as a command line interface to InPerson. It passes
commands specified in the commandstring to InPerson. This is useful for
applications that want to initiate InPerson calls, or for users who wish
to create InPerson shortcuts.
Placing and Receiving Calls
inpcontrol sends commandstring to InPerson.
InPerson accepts a number of commands in the following formats:
call [ -f whiteboardfile ] user1@host1, user2@host2, ...
author [ -f whiteboardfile ]
Examples [Toc] [Back]
/usr/lib/InPerson/inpcontrol "call -f foo.wb eho@xxx"
This will call user eho at machine xxx and use the InPerson
whiteboard file foo.wb in the conference.
This will cause the user to answer the current incoming call if one
exists. Otherwise it will bring up the InPerson "Let's Make A Call"
You must have InPerson running in order for inpcontrol to work
Your DISPLAY variable must be set to the X display of the inperson
instance that you wish to control.
Please see the InPerson release notes for known bugs and workarounds.
Currently inpcontrol does not return valid values indicating the success
or failure of any commands it sends. InPerson will display the error
dialogs for any connection errors encountered.
