That set me onto the right path! But dang it was hard for me to find out anything remotely resembling documentation! I first
com.nokia.profiled files, ended up finding
profiled.service systemd system service file, which in turn just starts
/usr/bin/profiled (which outputs nothing with ´–help´). Armed with that binary name, I googled my way to its source code using which I was finally able to, uh, nothing. I don’t know DBus…
But then I found this lovely page in Maemo wiki! Using that as a template I was finally able to come up with something useful!
First I have to check the active profile:
$ dbus-send --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=com.nokia.profiled /com/nokia/profiled com.nokia.profiled.get_profile
Then I can query the actual ringtone volume (until the response was
silent which automatically means: don’t make a sound):
dbus-send --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=com.nokia.profiled /com/nokia/profiled com.nokia.profiled.get_value string:"general" string:"ringing.alert.volume"
So there you go. This is how you can query the active profile and get the ringtone volume. Another interesting query was listing the profiles:
$ dbus-send --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=com.nokia.profiled /com/nokia/profiled
So far I have been able to set only
silent. If the volume is not zero, the profile is
general. If the Silent top-menu button is activated, or volume slider dragged to zero, the profile is switched to
silent without the
general volume getting set. So it’s a bit illogical, but at least I got that figured out before I got into actually writing the code for this!
I think I have earned a beer.
