NAME
       dbus-cleanup-sockets - clean up leftover sockets in a directory

SYNOPSIS
       dbus-cleanup-sockets [DIRECTORY]

DESCRIPTION
       The  dbus-cleanup-sockets  command  cleans  up  unused D-Bus connection
       sockets. See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more	infor‐
       mation about the big picture.

       If  given  no  arguments, dbus-cleanup-sockets cleans up sockets in the
       standard default socket directory for the  per-user-login-session  mes‐
       sage  bus;  this is usually /tmp.  Optionally, you can pass a different
       directory on the command line.

       On Linux, this program is essentially useless, because  D-Bus  defaults
       to  using "abstract sockets" that exist only in memory and don't have a
       corresponding file in /tmp.

       On most other flavors of UNIX, it's possible for the  socket  files  to
       leak when programs using D-Bus exit abnormally or without closing their
       D-Bus   connections.   Thus,   it   might   be	interesting   to   run
       dbus-cleanup-sockets  in	 a  cron job to mop up any leaked sockets.  Or
       you can just ignore the leaked sockets, they aren't really hurting any‐
       thing, other than cluttering the output of "ls /tmp"

BUGS
       Please send bug reports to the D-Bus mailing list or bug	 tracker,  see
