NAME
       bluetoothd - Bluetooth daemon


SYNOPSIS
       bluetoothd [ -n ]


DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the bluetoothd daemon, which manages
       all the Bluetooth devices.  bluetoothd itself does not accept many
       command-line options, as most of its configuration is done in the
       /etc/bluetooth/main.conf file, which has its own man page.  bluetoothd
       can also provide a number of services via the D-Bus message bus system.

OPTIONS
       -n     Don't run as daemon in background.

       -d     Enable debug information output.

       -m mtu-size
              Use specific MTU size for SDP server.
