NAME
urxvtd - urxvt terminal daemon SYNOPSIS
urxvtd [-q|--quiet] [-o|--opendisplay] [-f|--fork] [-m|--mlock] urxvtd -q -o -f # for .xsession use DESCRIPTION
This manpage describes the urxvtd daemon, which is the same vt102 terminal emulator as urxvt, but runs as a daemon that can open multiple terminal windows within the same process. You can run it from your X startup scripts, for example, although it is not dependent on a working DISPLAY and, in fact, can open windows on multiple X displays on the same time. Advantages of running a urxvt daemon include faster creation time for terminal windows and a lot of saved memory. The disadvantage is a possible impact on stability - if the main program crashes, all processes in the terminal windows are terminated. For example, as there is no way to cleanly react to abnormal connection closes, "xkill" and server resets/restarts will kill the urxvtd instance including all windows it has opened. OPTIONS
urxvtd currently understands a few options only. Bundling of options is not yet supported. -q, --quiet Normally, urxvtd outputs the message "rxvt-unicode daemon listening on <path>" after binding to its control socket. This option will suppress this message (errors and warnings will still be logged). -o, --opendisplay This forces urxvtd to open a connection to the current $DISPLAY and keep it open. This is useful if you want to bind an instance of urxvtd to the lifetime of a specific display/server. If the server does a reset, urxvtd will be killed automatically. -f, --fork This makes urxvtd fork after it has bound itself to its control socket. -m, --mlock This makes urxvtd call mlockall(2) on itself. This locks urxvtd in RAM and prevents it from being swapped out to disk, at the cost of consuming a lot more memory on most operating systems. Note: In order to use this feature, your system administrator must have set your user's RLIMIT_MEMLOCK to a size greater than or equal to the size of the urxvtd binary (or to unlimited). See /etc/security/limits.conf. Note 2: There is a known bug in glibc (possibly fixed in 2.8 and later versions) where calloc returns non-zeroed memory when mlockall is in effect. If you experience crashes or other odd behaviour while using --mlock, try it without it. EXAMPLES
This is a useful invocation of urxvtd in a .xsession-style script: urxvtd -q -f -o This waits till the control socket is available, opens the current display and forks into the background. When you log-out, the server is reset and urxvtd is killed. ENVIRONMENT
RXVT_SOCKET Both urxvtc and urxvtd use the environment variable RXVT_SOCKET to create a listening socket and to contact the urxvtd, respectively. If the variable is missing then $HOME/.urxvt/urxvtd-<nodename> is used. DISPLAY Only used when the "--opendisplay" option is specified. Must contain a valid X display name. SEE ALSO
