zlocate - find a user using Zephyr
-d ] [
-1 ] [
-p ] user ...
Zlocate uses the
Zephyr(1) Notification Service to find where a user is currently logged in. If
the user is not logged in, or has set his location information such that
you do not have access to see it,
zlocate prints "Hidden or not logged-in". Otherwise, each machine that the
user is currently logged into is printed, along with the time of
login and location. The location is usually the X window system display
name of the users display, but may be the terminal name if he is not
using X or for some other reason is only using the terminal interface to
By default, all zlocate requests are authenticated using
Kerberos. If you do not have Kerberos tickets, or for some other reason do not
want to authenticate, the
-d option will turn off authentication. The
-a option is the default, authentication on.
When locating multiple users,
zlocate will display the user name on a line by itself, followed by the locations for that user. To display the user name on the same line as the output, use the
-1 option (the numeral one).
To look up multiple users in parallel asynchronously, use the
zlocate exits with status zero (0) if at least one user was found, and one (1)
if no users were found.
