seatd-launch - Start a process with its own seatd instance
*seatd-launch* [options] [--] command
Show help message and quit.
Where to create the seatd socket. Defaults to a unique file path.
Show the version number and quit.
seatd-launch starts a seatd instance with a dedicated socket path, waits for it
to be ready, and starts the specified command with SEATD_SOCK set
appropriately. Once the specified command terminates, the seatd instance is
seatd requires root privileges to perform its tasks. This can be achieved
through SUID of seatd-launch, *sudo(8)*/*doas(1)*, or by running seatd-launch
as root. seatd-launch will drop privileges from the effective user to the real
user before running the specified command. If the real user is root, this is
simply a noop - only run directly as root if you intend for the specified
command to run as root as well.
seatd-launch serves a similar purpose to the libseat "builtin" backend, but is
superior to it for two reasons:
. The specified command never runs as root
. The standard seatd executable and libseat backend is used
