keytouchd-launch(1) start keytouch-related daemons in background


keytouchd-launch [ command [ args ... ] ]


KeyTouch needs a couple of daemons to run in the background of an X session, in order to proccess keystrokes. This daemons need to be started late in the session startup sequence, to allow them to pick up the proper environment.

keytouchd-launch is meant to be run by the session startup scripts. It starts keytouch's daemons in the background, executes command then, upon exit, terminates the daemons. The expected use case is for it to be called in a sequence such as

dbus-launch --exit-with-session keytouchd-launch [actual session command]

In this example, the keytouch daemons will be able to pick up the DBus environment variables set by dbus-launch and thus be a part of the session's bus.
