NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     askRestartFm - utility for	restarting the IRIX Interactive	Desktop

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The askRestartFm utility restarts the file	manager	on the desktop
     background	and, if	necessary, the icon catalog.  Its purpose is to	show
     new application icons immediately,	saving the user	the trouble of logging
     out and back in.

     askRestartFm displays a question dialog asking the	user whether to
     restart fm	and iconcatalog.  If the user clicks the Now button, then it
     restarts them immediately.	 Caveat: All iconviews (dirviews) are closed
     and must be reopened manually by the user.	 The existing fm process is
     reused via	the /usr/lib/desktop/telldesktop restart command.  If the user
     clicks the	Later pushbutton, the dialog is	dismissed.

     The fmserv	program	calls askRestartFm when	it detects that	the
     /usr/lib/filetype/desktop.otr icons database has changed, the usual cause
     of	which is software installation.	 The askRestartFm script is not
     intended to be run	directly by the	end user.

     For more information about	the entire IRIX	Interactive Desktop
     environment, see the IID(1) man page.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]


     askRestartFm creates the $HOME/.desktop-<hostname>/AskingRestartDesktop
     file, where $HOME is the user's home directory and	<hostname> is the host
     name as returned by hostname(1).  When the	user dismisses the dialog,
     askRestartFm removes the file.  If	the script detects that	the file
     already exists, it	exits without creating the file	or showing the dialog.
     When installing many applications,	the user can avoid seeing many dialogs
     by	waiting	until all products are installed to dismiss the	dialog.
