Tips for Using the DCOP CLI client

Giving a QStringList argument

The QStringList class needs to be delimited from the rest of the DCOP command with delimiters of your choosing: [], (), $$, etc.

E.g. To add labels to a file, issue:

dcop amarok collection addLabels /path/to/song.mp3 [ "Electronica" "Not Very Good" ]

DCOP should return 2 assuming both labels were new to the song. If your formatting is incorrect, you'll likely see an error like:

Not enough arguments (expected 2, got 2).

Check that you have a space between the delimiter and the quotation marks.
