KDEINIT5(8)		    kdeinit5 User's Manual		   KDEINIT5(8)

NAME
       kdeinit5	- Launcher for applications built with kdeinit support,	and
       for KIO slaves.

SYNOPSIS
       kdeinit5	[--help] [[--no-fork] |	[--no-kded] | [--suicide]]
		[[+programs] | [programs]]

DESCRIPTION
       kdeinit5	is a process launcher somewhat similar to the famous init used
       for booting UNIX. It executes KDE programs and kdeinit loadable modules
       (KLMs) starting them more efficiently.

       Using kdeinit5 to launch	KDE applications makes starting	a typical KDE
       application a couple times faster and reduces memory consumption	by a
       substantial amount.

       kdeinit5	is linked against all libraries	a standard KDE application
       needs. With this	technique, starting an application becomes much	faster
       because now only	the application	itself needs to	be linked whereas
       otherwise both the application as well as all the libraries it uses
       need to be linked.

DISADVANTAGES
       The process name	of applications	started	via kdeinit5 is	"kdeinit5".
       This problem can	be corrected to	a degree by changing the application
       name as shown by	ps. However, applications like killall will only see
       kdeinit5	as the process name. To	workaround this, use kdekillall	(from
       kdesdk/scripts) for applications	started	via kdeinit5.

OPTIONS
       --help
	   Show	help about options

       --no-fork
	   Do not fork,	i.e. do	not exit until all the executed	programs ends

       --no-kded
	   Do not start	kded

       --suicide
	   Terminate when no KDE applications are left running

       +programs
	   runs	the programs handling requests

       programs
	   runs	the programs without handling requests

USAGE
       A standard way to run this program is by	simply specifying the
       following command at the	prompt kdeinit5	program	or kdeinit5 +program

FILES
       /tmp/kde-$USER/kdeinit5_$INSTANCE
	   ...

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       $HOME
	   Specifies the home directory	of the current user

       $KDE_HOME_READONLY
	   Specifies if	the home directory of the current user is read only

       $KDE_IS_PRELINKED
	   If set, tells kdeinit5 that the KDE programs	are pre-linked.

	   (Prelinking is a process that allows	you to speed up	the process of
	   dynamic linking.)

       $KDE_DISPLAY
	   If set, tells kdeinit5 that it is running on	a KDE desktop.
