SYNOPSIS

       spice-vdagent [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       The  spice  guest agent for Linux consists of 2 parts, a system wide daemon spice-vdagentd
       and a X11 session agent spice-vdagent of which there is one per X11 session.
       spice-vdagentd gets started through a Sys-V initscript or a systemd unit.

FEATURES

       The spice guest agent adds the following features to spice Linux guests:

       Client mouse mode (no need to grab mouse by client, no mouse lag)

       Automatic  adjustment  of  the  X11  session's  number  of  virtual  monitors,  and  their
       resolution, to the number of client windows and their resolution

       Support of copy and paste (text and images) between the active X11 session and the client,
       this supports both the primary selection and the clipboard

       Support for transferring files from the client to the agent

OPTIONS

       -h     Print a short description of all command line options

       -d     Log debug messages (use twice for extra info)

       -f     Treat uinput device as fake; no ioctls.  This is useful in combination with Xspice.

       -o     The daemon will exit after processing a single session.

       -x     Don't daemonize

       -X     Disable session info usage, spice-vdagentd needs to know which spice-vdagent is  in
              the  currently  active  X11  session.   spice-vdagentd uses console kit or systemd-
              logind (compile time option) for this; The -X option disables this, if  no  session
              info is available only one spice-vdagent is allowed

FILES

       /etc/default/spice-vdagentd
              Default  cmdline  options  can  be  passed to spice-vdagentd by setting them in the
              SPICE_VDAGENTD_EXTRA_ARGS variable in this file
