Version - daemon for ’’lcd’’ display devices
LCD4Linux is a small program that grabs information from the kernel and
some subsystems and displays it on an external liquid crystal display.
If started without any options, it will try to read its configuration
from /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.
-f Alternate configuration file to read. Use this switch to make
lcd4linux read another file than /etc/lcd4linux.conf.
-F Run in forground and don’t daemonize. Useful for debugging.
-c arg allows to overwrite entries in the config-file from the command
line. arg is ’key=value’
-h shows a really short usage of lcd4linux
-i starts lcd4linux in interactive mode. Can be used multiple times
-l Prints a list of supported displays
-o Specifies an output file (see
http://ssl.bulix.org/projects/lcd4linux/ for details)
-q makes lcd4linux more quiet. Can be used multiple times
-v increases verbose level. Can be used multiple times
Contains the configuration of lcd4linux. Please note that
distributions generally don’t install this file, please create
it yourself using the sample configuration as template.
