bluetoothd - Bluetooth daemon


   bluetoothd [--version] | [--help]

   bluetoothd  [--nodetach]  [--compat] [--experimental] [--debug=<files>]
   [--plugin=<plugins>] [--noplugin=<plugins>]


   This manual page documents briefly the bluetoothd daemon, which manages
   all  the  Bluetooth  devices.   bluetoothd can also provide a number of
   services via the D-Bus message bus system.


   -v, --version
          Print bluetoothd version and exit.

   -h, --help
          Print bluetoothd options and exit.

   -n, --nodetach
          Enable  logging  in  foreground.  Directs  log  output  to   the
          controlling terminal in addition to syslog.

   -d, --debug=<file1>:<file2>:...
          Sets   how   much   information  bluetoothd  sends  to  the  log
          destination (usually syslog's "daemon" facility).  If  the  file
          options  are  omitted,  then  debugging information from all the
          source files are printed. If file options are present, then only
          debug  prints  from that source file are printed. The option can
          be a pattern containing "*" and "?" characters.

          Example: --debug=src/adapter.c:src/agent.c

   -p, --plugin=<plugin1>,<plugin2>,..
          Load these plugins only. The option can be a pattern  containing
          "*" and "?" characters.

   -P, --noplugin=<plugin1>,<plugin2>,..
          Never load these plugins. The option can be a pattern containing
          "*" and "?" characters.

   -C, --compat
          Provide deprecated command line interfaces.

   -E, --experimental
          Enable  experimental  interfaces.  Those  interfaces   are   not
          guaranteed to be compatible or present in future releases.
