ZEITGEIST-DAEMON(1)	    General Commands Manual	   ZEITGEIST-DAEMON(1)

NAME
       zeitgeist-daemon	- D-Bus	interface providing a log of activities

SYNOPSIS
       zeitgeist-daemon	[OPTION]

DESCRIPTION
       zeitgeist-daemon	 is daemon providing an	activity log. That is, it con-
       sists of	a central database for events such as file usage, browser his-
       tory, calendar entries, etc.

       All  this  information is made available	to external applications which
       communicate with	zeitgeist-daemon over D-Bus.  Interested  applications
       can request information,	insert new events or delete existing events.

       Zeitgeist is also capable of establishing relationships between activi-
       ties. Its purpose is enabling an	activity-aware desktop	with  adaptive
       user interfaces.

       By default, zeitgeist-daemon will also start the	bundled	logging	appli-
       cation zeitgeist-datahub.

OPTIONS
       The program follows the usual GNU command  line	syntax,	 with  options
       starting	 with  two dashes (`--'). A summary of options is included be-
       low.

       --no-datahub
	      Do not start zeitgeist-datahub together with this	daemon.

       -r, --replace
	      Replace any existing Zeitgeist instance if there is one  already
	      running. If this option isn't used, zeitgeist-daemon will	refuse
	      to start if another running instance is found.

       --log-level=LOG_LEVEL
	      Specifies	how much information should be printed to the standard
	      output.  Possible	values are: DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR, CRIT-
	      ICAL.

       --log-file=LOG_FILE
	      Specifies	a file to which	log output will	be appended.

       -q, --quit
	      Stop a currently running Zeitgeist instance and exit. This  lets
	      Zeitgeist	finish any operation it	may currently be doing.

       -v, --version
	      Shows which version of Zeitgeist is being	executed.

       -h, --help
	      Shows a short help message listing all supported options.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       ZEITGEIST_DATA_PATH
	      Overrides	 the  directory	 where user data files are placed. The
	      default  value  is  that	of  XDG's  data	 dir  (usually	~/.lo-
	      cal/share/zeitgeist).

       ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_PATH
	      This  variable  lets you specify an override for the filename of
	      the main database. The default value is $ZEITGEIST_DATA_PATH/ac-
	      tivity.sqlite.

       ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_BACKUP_PATH
	      This variable lets you specify an	override for the filename of a
	      possible	database  backup.  The	 default   value   is	$ZEIT-
	      GEIST_DATA_PATH/activity.sqlite.bck.

       ZEITGEIST_DISABLED_EXTENSIONS
	      This variable lets you specify comma separated list of extension
	      names which shouldn't be loaded. The names  are  extracted  from
	      type  names of the extensions, so	to disable extension with type
	      name ZeitgeistDataSourceRegistry,	value of the  variable	should
	      be DataSourceRegistry.

SIGNALS
       SIGHUP: zeitgeist-daemon	will shut itself down in a clean way.
	      It  is  recommended  that	 system	updates	of Zeitgeist send this
	      signal to	all running instances of zeitgeist-daemon. DBus	 acti-
	      vation  will  make  sure	the  updated software is automatically
	      restarted	when needed.

EXIT CODES
       0      Zeitgeist	terminated normally.

       1      An unspecified error occurred.

       10     There is already a running Zeitgeist instance.

       21     Could not	access the database file.

       22     The database file	is locked.
