       card_eventmgr - PCSC-Lite Event Manager

       card_eventmgr [debug] [[no]daemon] [timeout=<msecs>] [config_file=<filename>] [kill] [pid-

       card_eventmgr is a smart card monitoring tool that listen to the status of the card reader
       and  dispatch  actions  on several events.  card_eventmgr can be used for several actions:
       like screen lock on card removal.

       Three events are supported: card insertion, card removal  and  timeout  on  removed  card.
       Actions are specified in a configuration file.

       debug  Enable debugging output.

	      Runs  in	background  if daemon or in foreground if nodaemon (default). If debug is
	      unset, the program dettaches itself from the tty.

	      Set polling timeout in milliseconds. Defaults to 1000 (1 second).

       config_file=<configuration file>
	      Sets de configuration file. Default value is /etc/pam_pkcs11/card_eventmgr.conf.

	      Store the card_eventmgr process ID (pid) in the file pidfile.

       kill   Read a process id from pidfile and kill that process. You  must  use  the  argument
	      pidfile=<pidfile> to use kill.


       To run this program the standard way type:


       Alternatively you can specify options:

	card_eventmgr debug nodaemon timeout=500 config_file=$HOME/.card_eventmgr.conf

       If you want to start and stop card_eventmgr automatically in an X11 session you can create
       a ~/.xsession file containing:
	# start the card autolock
	card_eventmgr pidfile=$HOME/.card_eventmgr.pid

	# start Gnome or something else

	# kill the card autolock
	card_eventmgr kill pidfile=$HOME/.card_eventmgr.pid

       Some applications like xscreensaver-command may fail due to external events  (eg:  try  to
       unlock an unlocked session).  In this case, the command incorrectly returns error code.
