NAME

zenity – display GTK+ dialogs

SYNOPSIS

zenity [options]

DESCRIPTION

zenity is a program that will display GTK+ dialogs, and return (either
in the return code, or on standard output) the users input. This allows
you to present information, and ask for information from the user, from
all manner of shell scripts.

For example, zenity –question will return either 0, 1 or 5, depending
on whether the user pressed OK, Cancel or timeout has been reached.
zenity –entry will output on standard output what the user typed into
the text entry field.

Comprehensive documentation is available in the GNOME Help Browser.

ZEITGEIST-DATAHUB(1) General Commands Manual ZEITGEIST-DATAHUB(1)

NAME

zeitgeist-datahub – passive loggers for Zeitgeist

SYNOPSIS

zeitgeist-datahub [OPTION]

DESCRIPTION

zeitgeist-datahub is a daemon which centralizes all passive data
sources into a single process, and interfaces between said data sources
(also known as loggers) and zeitgeist-daemon (with which it communi‐
cates via D-Bus).

Passive data sources are those which run in the background and look for
activities independently to the programs they monitor, whereas Zeit‐
geist can also work with active data sources which are those in-build
into other applications (either natively or through extensions).

OPTIONS

The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with options
starting with two dashes (`–‘). A summary of options is included
below.

Currently there are no options available.

ZEITGEIST-DAEMON(1) General Commands Manual ZEITGEIST-DAEMON(1)

NAME

zeitgeist-daemon – D-Bus interface providing a log of activities

SYNOPSIS

zeitgeist-daemon [OPTION]

DESCRIPTION

zeitgeist-daemon is daemon providing an activity log. That is, it con‐
sists of a central database for events such as file usage, browser his‐
tory, calendar entries, etc.

All this information is made available to external applications which
communicate with zeitgeist-daemon over D-Bus. Interested applications
can request information, insert new events or delete existing events.

Zeitgeist is also capable of establishing relationships between activi‐
ties. Its purpose is enabling an activity-aware desktop with adaptive
user interfaces.

By default, zeitgeist-daemon will also start the bundled logging appli‐
cation zeitgeist-datahub.

OPTIONS

The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with options
starting with two dashes (`–‘). A summary of options is included
below.

–no-datahub
Do not start zeitgeist-datahub together with this daemon.

-r, –replace
Replace any existing Zeitgeist instance if there is one already
running. If this option isn’t used, zeitgeist-daemon will refuse
to start if another running instance is found.

–log-level=LOG_LEVEL
Specifies how much information should be printed to the standard
output. Possible values are: DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR, CRIT‐
ICAL.

–log-file=LOG_FILE
Specifies a file to which log output will be appended.

-q, –quit
Stop a currently running Zeitgeist instance and exit. This lets
Zeitgeist finish any operation it may currently be doing.

-v, –version
Shows which version of Zeitgeist is being executed.

-h, –help
Shows a short help message listing all supported options.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
ZEITGEIST_DATA_PATH
Overrides the directory where user data files are placed. The
default value is that of XDG’s data dir (usually
~/.local/share/zeitgeist).

ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_PATH
This variable lets you specify an override for the filename of
the main database. The default value is $ZEIT‐
GEIST_DATA_PATH/activity.sqlite.

ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_BACKUP_PATH
This variable lets you specify an override for the filename of a
possible database backup. The default value is $ZEIT‐
GEIST_DATA_PATH/activity.sqlite.bck.

ZEITGEIST_DISABLED_EXTENSIONS
This variable lets you specify comma separated list of extension
names which shouldn’t be loaded. The names are extracted from
type names of the extensions, so to disable extension with type
name ZeitgeistDataSourceRegistry, value of the variable should
be DataSourceRegistry.

SIGNALS
SIGHUP: zeitgeist-daemon will shut itself down in a clean way.
It is recommended that system updates of Zeitgeist send this
signal to all running instances of zeitgeist-daemon. DBus acti‐
vation will make sure the updated software is automatically
restarted when needed.

EXIT CODES
0 Zeitgeist terminated normally.

1 An unspecified error occurred.

10 There is already a running Zeitgeist instance.

21 Could not access the database file.

22 The database file is locked.

NAME

yuvtoppm – convert Abekas YUV bytes into a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS

yuvtoppm width height [imagedata]

DESCRIPTION

Reads raw Abekas YUV bytes as input. Produces a portable pixmap as
output. The input file is just YUV bytes. You have to specify the
width and height on the command line, since the program obviously can’t
get them from the file. The maxval is assumed to be 255.

NAME

yuvsplittoppm – convert a Y- and a U- and a V-file into a portable

SYNOPSIS

yuvsplittoppm basename width height [-ccir601]

DESCRIPTION

Reads three files, containing the YUV components, as input. These
files are basename.Y, basename.U, and basename.V. Produces a portable
pixmap on stdout.

Since the YUV files are raw files, the dimensions width and height must
be specified on the command line.

OPTIONS

-ccir601
Assumes that the YUV triplets are scaled into the smaller range
of the CCIR 601 (MPEG) standard. Else, the JFIF (JPEG) standard
is assumed.
