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.

signal to all running instances of zeitgeist-daemon. DBus acti‐
vation will make sure the updated software is automatically
restarted when needed.
