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
       consists of a central database for events such as file  usage,  browser
       history, 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
       activities. Its purpose is  enabling  an  activity-aware  desktop  with
       adaptive user interfaces.

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

OPTIONS

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

       --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,
              CRITICAL.

       --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
              ~/.local/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/activity.sqlite.

       ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_BACKUP_PATH
              This variable lets you specify an override for the filename of a
              possible    database    backup.    The    default    value    is
              $ZEITGEIST_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
              activation  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.
