NAME

       hcid - Bluetooth Host Controller Interface Daemon

SYNOPSIS

       hcid [ -n ] [ -f config-file ]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page documents briefly the hcid daemon, which manages all
       the Bluetooth devices.  hcid itself does not accept  many  command-line
       options,  as  most  of its configuration is done in the hcid.conf file,
       which has its own man page.  hcid can also provide a number of services
       via the D-BUS message bus system.

OPTIONS

       -n     Don’t fork to run daemon in background.

       -f config-file
              Use      alternate     configuration     file     instead     of
              /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
