       Version - daemon for ’’lcd’’ display devices


       lcd4linux [OPTIONS...]


       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
     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.

              Contains a detailed and extensive example configuration file
