       Version - daemon for ''lcd'' display devices


       lcd4linux [OPTIONS...]


       LCD4Linux  is  a  small program that grabs information from the kernel and some subsystems
       and displays it on an external liquid crystal display.

       /etc/lcd4linux.conf  and  daemonize.  Please make sure your configuration file is owned by
       the user you run lcd4linux (typically root) and has permissions 600.

              another file than /etc/lcd4linux.conf.
