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


       zeitgeist-daemon [OPTION]


       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


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

              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.

              Specifies  how much information should be printed to the standard output.  Possible
              values are: DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR, CRITICAL.

              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.


              Overrides the directory where user data files are placed. The default value is that
              of XDG's data dir (usually ~/.local/share/zeitgeist).

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

              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.

              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.


       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.


       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.
