NAME

       cockpit-desktop - Cockpit Desktop integration

SYNOPSIS

       cockpit-desktop {URLPATH}

DESCRIPTION

       The cockpit-desktop program provides secure access to Cockpit pages in an already running
       desktop session. It starts a web server (cockpit-ws) and a web browser in an isolated
       network namespace, and a cockpit-bridge(8) in the running user session.

       This avoids having to log into Cockpit, and having to enable cockpit.socket system-wide.
       The network isolation ensures that no other user, and not even other processes in the
       user's session, can access this local web server.

       URLPATH is the Cockpit page to open, i. e. the path component of Cockpit URLs. It is
       highly recommended to only open a particular page frame[1], not the entire Cockpit
       navigation and menu. For example, the path /cockpit/@localhost/storage/index.html will
       open the Storage page.

ENVIRONMENT

       The BROWSER environment variable specifies the browser command (and possibly options) that
       will be used to open the requested Cockpit page. If not set, cockpit-desktop uses xdg-
       open(1).

BUGS

       Please send bug reports to either the distribution bug tracker or the upstream bug
       tracker[2].
