.TH ZEITGEIST\-DAEMON 1 "June 28, 2012" "Zeitgeist"

.SH NAME
zeitgeist\-daemon \- D\-Bus interface providing a log of activities

.SH SYNOPSIS
\fBzeitgeist\-daemon\fP \fI[OPTION]\fP

.SH DESCRIPTION
\fBzeitgeist\-daemon\fP is daemon providing an activity log. That is,
it consists of a central database for events such as file usage, browser
history, calendar entries, etc.
.PP
All this information is made available to external applications which
communicate with \fBzeitgeist\-daemon\fP over D-Bus. Interested
applications can request information, insert new events or delete
existing events. 
.PP
Zeitgeist is also capable of establishing relationships between
activities. Its purpose is enabling an activity-aware desktop with
adaptive user interfaces.
.PP
By default, \fBzeitgeist\-daemon\fP will also start the bundled
logging application \fBzeitgeist\-datahub\fP.

.SH OPTIONS
The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with
options starting with two dashes (`--'). A summary of options is
included below.
.TP
.B \-\-no\-datahub
Do not start \fBzeitgeist\-datahub\fP together with this daemon.
.TP
.B \-r, \-\-replace
Replace any existing Zeitgeist instance if there is one already
running. If this option isn't used, \fBzeitgeist\-daemon\fP will
refuse to start if another running instance is found.
.TP
.B --log-level=\fILOG_LEVEL\fP
Specifies how much information should be printed to the standard output.
Possible values are: DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR, CRITICAL.
.TP
.B --log-file=\fILOG_FILE\fP
Specifies a file to which log output will be appended.
.TP
.B \-q, \-\-quit
Stop a currently running Zeitgeist instance and exit. This lets
Zeitgeist finish any operation it may currently be doing.
.TP
.B \-v, \-\-version
Shows which version of Zeitgeist is being executed.
.TP
.B \-h, \-\-help
Shows a short help message listing all supported options.

.SH ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

value is that of XDG's data dir (usually ~/.local/share/zeitgeist).
.TP
.B ZEITGEIST_DATABASE_PATH

database. The default value is $ZEITGEIST_DATA_PATH/activity.sqlite.
.TP

This variable lets you specify an override for the filename of a possible

shouldn't be loaded. The names are extracted from type names of the extensions,
so to disable extension with type name ZeitgeistDataSourceRegistry, value
