SYNOPSIS

keyboard-daemon [-Vdv] [-f config_file]
.Bk <device_node>
.Ek

DESCRIPTION

The keyboard-daemon utility attaches to a given <device_node> and reads keypresses from it.

The options are as follows:
-V Return the version of keyboard-daemon.
-d Daemonize (run in background).
-v Verbose mode (useful for finding scan codes).
-f config_file
  Specify an alternative configuration file. The default is for /usr/local/etc/keyboard-daemon.conf.
-p pidfile
  Specify a pidfile. This only takes effect if -d is specified.

FILES

/usr/local/etc/keyboard-daemon.conf

EXAMPLES

Before starting keyboard-daemon, the target <device_node> must be disconnected from the kbdmux(4) using kdbcontrol(1), for example using
.Fx :

    # kbdcontrol -A device_node < /dev/console

This is performed automatically when using the
.Fx rc script.
