GVFSD(1) User Commands GVFSD(1)NAMEgvfsd - Main daemon for gvfs
DESCRIPTIONgvfsd is the main daemon for the gvfs virtual filesystem. It provides
the org.gtk.vfs.Daemon name on the session bus. gvfsd is autostarted by
GIO clients if it is not running.
The primary task of gvfsd is to act as a mount tracker/manager. It
spawns new backends when requested and keeps track fo their lifecycle,
maintaining a list of active mounts and creates direct connections to
Since gvfs backends are running as children of the gvfsd process, it is
possible to start gvfsd in a terminal and set environment variables to
get debug output from individual backends.
gvfsd also starts the gvfsd-fuse(1), and provides it the mount point
where the fuse file system should be mounted.
Prints a short help text and exits.
Replace the currently running gvfsd instance.
Don't start the fuse filesystem.
If this environment variable is set, gvfsd will not start the fuse
On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
