       quota_nld - quota netlink message daemon

       quota_nld [[ -D | -C ][ -F ][ -b ]]

       quota_nld  listens on netlink socket and processes received quota warn-
       ings. By default quota_nld forwards warning messages to both  the  sys-
       tem's  DBUS  (so that the desktop manager can display a dialog) and the
       last-accessed terminal of the user to whom each	warning	 is  directed.
       Either  of  these  destinations	can  be	 disabled  with	 the -D and -C
       options, respectively.

       In the case of the user's terminal, quota messages about falling	 below
       the  hard  and  soft limits are not sent unless the -b option is speci-
       fied. In the case of the DBUS, all quota messages are sent.

       Note, that you have to enable the kernel support for sending quota mes-
       sages over netlink (in Filesystems->Quota menu).

       -V, --version
	      Show version of quota tools and exit.

       -h, --help
	      Show a usage message and exit.

       -D, --no-dbus
	      Do not forward quota warnings to DBUS.

       -C, --no-console
	      Do  not  print quota warnings to the user's last-accessed termi-

       -b, --print-below
	      If quota warnings are printed to users' terminals, include  mes-
	      sages about falling below their hard and soft limits.

       -F, --foreground
	      Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes).
