NAME

       elogind - Login manager

SYNOPSIS

       elogind [OPTIONS...] {COMMAND}

DESCRIPTION

       elogind is a system service that manages user logins. It is responsible for:

       ·   Keeping track of users and sessions, their processes and their idle state

       ·   Providing PolicyKit-based access for users to operations such as system shutdown or
           sleep

       ·   Implementing a shutdown/sleep inhibition logic for applications

       ·   Handling of power/sleep hardware keys

       ·   Multi-seat management

       ·   Session switch management

       ·   Device access management for users

       User sessions are registered in elogind via the pam_elogind(8) PAM module.

       See logind.conf(5) for information about the configuration of this service.

       See Multi-Seat on Linux[1] for an introduction into basic concepts of logind such as
       users, sessions and seats.

       See the logind D-Bus API Documentation[2] for information about the APIs logind provides.

       For more information on the inhibition logic see the Inhibitor Lock Developer
       Documentation[3].
