       Firecfg - Desktop integration utility for Firejail software.

       firecfg [OPTIONS]

       Firecfg is the desktop integration utility for Firejail sandbox.  It
       allows the user to sandbox applications automatically by clicking on
       desktop manager icons and menus.

       The integration covers:

              - programs started in a terminal - typing "firefox" would be
              enough to start a sandboxed Firefox browser

              - programs started by clicking on desktop manager menus - all
              major desktop managers are supported

              - programs started by clicking on file icons in file manager -
              only Cinnamon, KDE, LXDE/LXQT, MATE and XFCE desktop managers
              are supported in this moment

       To set it up, run "sudo firecfg" after installing Firejail software.
       The same command should also be run after installing new programs. If
       the program is supported by Firejail, the symbolic link in
       /usr/local/bin will be created. For a full list of programs supported
       by default run "cat /usr/lib/firejail/firecfg.config".

       For user-driven manual integration, see DESKTOP INTEGRATION section in
       man 1 firejail.

       The following actions are implemented by default by running sudo

              - set or update the symbolic links for desktop integration;

              - add the current user to Firejail user access database (firecfg

              - fix desktop files in $HOME/.local/share/applications/ (firecfg

       --add-users user [user]
              Add the list of users to Firejail user access database.

              $ sudo firecfg --add-users dustin lucas mike eleven

              Create and search symbolic links in directory instead of the
              default location /user/local/bin.  Directory should precede
              /usr/bin and /bin in the PATH environment variable.

              Remove all firejail symbolic links.

       --fix  Fix .desktop files. Some .desktop files use full path to
              executable. Firecfg will check .desktop files in
              /usr/share/applications/, replace full path by name if it is in
              PATH, and write result to $HOME/.local/share/applications/.
              This action is done by default when running "sudo firecfg". We
              have it as a separate option for regular users.

              Create a proper ~/.config/pulse/client.conf file without shm
              support. On some PulseAudio versions, shared memory support
              (shm) breaks the process ID namespace. PulseAudio software was
              designed a long time ago, and the introduction of PID namespace
              in Linux kernel breaks their design. This was reportedly fixed
              in PulseAudio version 9. If you have sound problems on your
              system, run "firecfg --fix-sound" command in a terminal,
              followed by logout/login in order to apply the changes.

              Print debug messages.

       -?, --help
              Print options end exit.

       --list List all firejail symbolic links

              Print program version and exit.
