Description

seatd provides central seat management, mediating access to shared resources such as displays and input devices in a multi-session, multi-seat environment.

seatd operates over a UNIX domain socket, with libseat providing the client-side of the protocol.

The location of the socket for seatd is set at compile-time.

Environment

SEATD_VTBOUND

If set to "0", the seat will not be bound to a VT.
