I been through the kde 2.0 api, kde 3.5 api, etc.. and I haven't been able to find a specific reference to when Unique is allow, honored, etc.. The whole search has been rather frustrating in that there isn't a single collection of information that seems to address what service types are allowed when. The most information in one place I could find was at: http://api.kde.org/3.5-api/kdelibs-apidocs/dcop/html/index.html http://api.kde.org/3.5-api/kdelibs-apidocs/dcop/html/classes.html See, in general, http://api.kde.org/ (bottom of page) There are a bizillion posts of list the entry as part of a .desktop file, but nothing on point. You may see something I missed in the api, but it looks like you are down to grepping headers and code. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
