Starting the daemon

Starting a single instance

To start an instance of the daemon, simply run (assuming your configuration is located under /etc/tblock.conf):

tblockd -dc /etc/tblock.conf

Or the long alternative:

tblockd --daemon --config=/etc/tblock.conf

Starting another instance

If an instance of the daemon is already running, you are not able to start another instance by default. However, you can do that by telling the new instance to ignore the PID file:

tblockd -dnc /etc/tblock.conf

Or with the long version:

tblockd --daemon --no-pid --config=/etc/tblock.conf
