       cinnamon-settings-daemon - Cinnamon settings daemon


       cinnamon-settings-daemon [OPTION...]


       cinnamon-settings-daemon provides many session-wide services and functions that require a
       long-running process. Among the services implemented by cinnamon-settings-daemon are an
       XSettings manager, which provides theming, font and other settings to GTK+ applications,
       and a clipboard manager, which preserves clipboard contents when an application exits.
       Many user interface elements of cinnamon and cinnamon-settings rely on
       cinnamon-settings-daemon for their functionality.

       The internal architecture of cinnamon-settings-daemon consists of a number of plugins,
       which provide functionality such as printer notifications, software update monitoring,
       background changing, etc. For debugging purposes, these plugins can be individually
       disabled by changing the gsettings key, where plugin-name is the name of
       the plugin. To see a list of all plugins, use the command
        gsettings list-children org.cinnamon.settings-daemon.plugins

       cinnamon-settings-daemon takes the name org.cinnamon.SettingsDaemon on the session bus to
       ensure that only one instance is running. Some plugins export objects under this name to
       make their functionality available to other applications. The interfaces of these objects
       should generally be considered private and unstable.

       cinnamon-settings-daemon is a required component of the Cinnamon desktop, i.e. it is
       listed in the RequiredComponents field of
       /usr/share/cinnamon-session/sessions/cinnamon.session. It is started in the initialization
       phase of the session, and cinnamon-session will restart it if it crashes.

           Enables debugging code.

           Exits after a timeout (30 seconds) for debugging.
