       g15daemon  -  provides  access  to  extra  keys  and the LCD available on the logitech G15


       G15Daemon allows users access to all extra keys by decoding them  and  pushing  them  back
       into  the kernel via the linux UINPUT driver.  This driver must be loaded before g15daemon
       can be used for keyboard access.

       The G15 LCD is also supported.  By default, with no other clients active,  g15daemon  will
       display a clock.  Client applications and scripts can access the LCD via a simple API.


       The current version of G15Daemon understands the following options:

       -v     Show version info.

       -s     By default, g15daemon uses the L1 key to switch between client screens.  Using this
              switch on the cmdline alters this, making MR (Macro Record) the button  to  achieve
              this function.

       -k      Stop a previously running copy of G15Daemon.  For the keys and LCD to work, you'll
              have to restart the daemon manually.

       -h     Show a brief summary of commandline options available.


       G15Daemon must be run as the root user, either from a startup script (sample  scripts  are
       available in the contrib folder) or manually, via the su command.

       To run the daemon with default options, run:



            g15daemon -s to have the MR key as the client screen switch.

       If  all  required libraries are installed and in locations known to your operating system,
       the daemon will slip quietly into the background and a  clock  will  appear  on  the  LCD.
       Congratulations!  The linux kernel will now output keycodes for all your extra keys.

       G15daemon  was  written by Mike Lampard and uses the libg15
       library  by  Philip  Lawatsch  and  Anthony  J.  Mirabella  of   the   g15tools   project.

       The Python bindings for libg15daemon_client were written by Sven Ludwig.
