lockfs-notify - notify user about temporary or permanent changes on fs


lockfs-notify [-a|--always|-l|--lockfs|-n|--nolockfs] [-t TIME|--expire-time=TIME]
lockfs-notify -h|--help


lockfs-notify is a wrapper around notify-send(1). It is used to send a notification to
users at the beginning of a session, to say if temporary or permanent changes are allowed
on which filesystems (or more precisely on which mountpoints).


If several of the -a, -l or -n options are invoked (or their long forms, respectively
--always, --lockfs or --nolockfs), the last overrides the previous ones. The invocation of
these options also overrides the variable 'BILIBOP_LOCKFS_NOTIFY_POLICY' that can be set
in bilibop.conf(5).

-a, --always
Always send a notification: about filesystems on which permanent changes are
allowed, and about filesystems on which temporary changes are allowed. So, if the
bilibop-lockfs feature is enabled, and one or more mountpoints have been
whitelisted in /etc/bilibop/bilibop.conf, then two notifications are send to the

-h, --help
Print a short help message on stdout and exit.

-l, --lockfs
Send a notification only about filesystems for which the 'lockfs' feature has been
enabled, i.e. about mountpoints for which only temporary changes are allowed. All
these changes will be lost at next shutdown of the computer.

-n, --nolockfs
Send a notification only about filesystems for which the 'lockfs' feature has been
disabled, i.e. about mountpoints for which permanent changes are allowed. All these
changes will be kept after the shutdown of the computer.

-t TIME, --expire-time=TIME
Specifies the timeout in milliseconds at which to expire the notification. Values
of TIME less than '1000' (1 second) make the timeout is disabled and the
notification never expires. If TIME is not an integer, this option is silently
