DJMOUNT(1) General Commands Manual DJMOUNT(1)


djmount - file system client for mounting network media servers


djmount [options] mountpoint


This manual page describes briefly the djmount command.

This package provides a client for Universal Plug'n'Play (UPnP) Audio-Visual MediaServers. It discovers all compatible UPnP AV devices on the network automatically and mounts their media content as a file system using FUSE.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the Info files.

enable debug output (implies -f)

foreground operation (default: daemonized)

print this help, then exit

print version number, then exit

mount options (see below)

iocharset=<charset> filenames encoding (default: from environment)
playlists use playlists for AV files, instead of plain files
search_history=<size> number of remembered searches (default: 100)
(set to 0 to disable search)

default_permissions enable permission checking by kernel
allow_other allow access to other users
allow_root allow access to root
kernel_cache cache files in kernel
nonempty allow mounts over non-empty file/dir
fsname=NAME set filesystem name in mtab

upnperr, upnpall: increasing level of UPnP traces
error, warn, info, debug: increasing level of djmount traces
fuse: activates FUSE traces
leak, leakfull: enable talloc leak reports at exit
'-d' alone defaults to 'upnpall, debug, fuse, leak' which is all traces.
