NAME

       aptd - package managing daemon proving a D-Bus interface

SYNOPSIS

       aptd [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       aptd  allows  to  perform  package management tasks, e.g. installing or removing software,
       using a D-Bus interface. The privileges are handled by PolicyKit so the client application
       doesn't  need to run as root. Furthermore aptd is started by D-Bus activation only when an
       user calls a method.

OPTIONS

       -d, --debug
              Show additional information on the command line.

       -h, --help
              Show information about the usage of the command.

       -r, --replace
              Replace another aptd instance if it is running.

       -p PROFILE_FILE
              Write profiling data to PROFILE_FILE using Python's profiler. This is only  of  use
              to developers.

       -t, --disable-timeout
              Do not shutdown the daemon after an idle time.

       --dummy
              Instead  of applying the changes to the system only show a progress. This option is
              only usable for developers to locate problems in client applications.

FILES

       /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20dbus
              Adds a small post update  hook  which  will  emit  the  org.debian.apt.CacheChanged
              signal  on  the  system  D-Bus  to  indicate  that the cache has been changed and a
              possible running aptd instance should reloade its internal cache.

       /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.debian.apt.policy
              The PolicyKit definitions of the privileges used  by  aptdaemon,  e.g.  to  install
              packages. To change the privileges please have a look at PolicyKit.conf(1).

       /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.debian.apt.conf
              The D-Bus configuration of the org.debian.apt name space.

DIAGNOSTICS

       By default aptdaemon logs to the syslog facility AptDaemon. Furthermore you can use the -d
       option to get additional information on the command line.
