NAME

       org.debian.apt - the main interface of aptdaemon

SYNOPSIS

       The  daemon  is  accessed  through the D-Bus object at /or/debian/apt.  Which provides the
       following interface.

DESCRIPTION

   METHODS
       AddRepository
              AddRepository  (in 's' type,
                        in 's' uri,
                        in 's' dist,
                        in 'as' comps,
                        in 's' comment,
                        in 's' sourcesfile)

              Add a new repository to the sources list file. The repository  has  to  define  the
              type  (e.g.  deb  or  deb-src),  uri  (e.g.  http://archive.debian.org/debian), the
              distribution (e.g. stable) and a list of components (e.g. main).

              Optionally a comment and an alternative sources.list file can be specified.

       EnableDistroComponent
              EnableDistroComponent    (in 's' comp)

              Enable a component for all distro repositories, e.g. main or universe.

       GetTrustedVendorKeys
              GetTrustedVendorKeys     (out 'as' keys)

              Return the GnuPG keys which are used to authenticate packages.

       GetAtiveTransactions
              GetActiveTransactions    (out 'as' tids)

              Return an array of the currently queued transactions.

       Quit
              Quit ()

              Request the shutdown of the daemon. The daemon  will  finish  a  currently  running
              transaction before.

   TRANSACTION BASED METHODS
       The  following  methods  are  handled  by  transactions.  By  calling  the  methods  a new
       transaction will be created for the task. The return value of  the  method  is  the  D-Bus
       object  path  of the corresponding transaction. The transaction can be modified, to use an
       http proxy or to run in a specific language by setting the corresponding properties on the
       org.debian.apt.transaction(7)  interface.  Afterwards the transaction has to be queued for
       processing by calling its Run method on the org.debian.apt.transaction(7) interface.

              Return  the id of a newly created transaction which will fetch the latest meta data
