NAME

aptd – package managing daemon proving a D-Bus interface

SYNOPSIS

aptd [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

aptd allows to perform package management tasks, e.g. installing or
removing software, using a D-Bus interface. The privileges are handled
by PolicyKit so the client application doesn’t need to run as root.
Furthermore aptd is started by D-Bus activation only when an user calls
a method.

OPTIONS

-d, –debug
Show additional information on the command line.

-h, –help
Show information about the usage of the command.

-r, –replace
Replace another aptd instance if it is running.

-p PROFILE_FILE
Write profiling data to PROFILE_FILE using Python’s profiler.
This is only of use to developers.

-t, –disable-timeout
Do not shutdown the daemon after an idle time.

–dummy
Instead of applying the changes to the system only show a
progress. This option is only usable for developers to locate
problems in client applications.

FILES
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20dbus
Adds a small post update hook which will emit the
org.debian.apt.CacheChanged signal on the system D-Bus to indi‐
cate that the cache has been changed and a possible running aptd
instance should reloade its internal cache.

/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.debian.apt.policy
The PolicyKit definitions of the privileges used by aptdaemon,
e.g. to install packages. To change the privileges please have a
look at PolicyKit.conf(1).

/etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.debian.apt.conf
The D-Bus configuration of the org.debian.apt name space.

DIAGNOSTICS
By default aptdaemon logs to the syslog facility AptDaemon. Furthermore
you can use the -d option to get additional information on the command
line.
