NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Xsession.options - configuration options for Xsession(5)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       /etc/X11/Xsession.options  contains  a set of flags that determine some
       of the behavior of the Xsession(5) Bourne shell	(sh(1))  script.   See
       the Xsession(5) manpage for further information.

       Xsession.options may contain comments, which begin with a hash mark and
       end at the next newline, just like comments in shell scripts.  The rest
       of  the file consists of options which are expressed as words separated
       by hyphens, with only one option per line.  If  an  option  is  present
       with  the "no-" prefix, or absent, it is disabled, otherwise it is considered

       Available options are:

	      If the "failsafe" argument is passed to the Xsession script,  an
	      emergency  X  session is invoked, consisting of only an x-termi-
	      nal-emulator(1) in the upper-left hand corner of the screen.  No
	      window  manager  is  started.   If an x-terminal-emulator is not
	      available, the session exits immediately.

	      If users have a file called .Xresources in their	home  directories,
  these resources will be merged with the default resources
	      when they log in.

	      If users have an executable file called .Xsession in their  home
	      directories, it is used as the startup program for the X session
	      (see Xsession(5)).  If the file is present not executable, it is
	      still  used,  but  assumed to be a Bourne shell script, and executed
 with sh(1).

	      If the  ssh-agent(1)  program  is  available  no	agent  process
	      appears  to be running already, the X session will be invoked by
	      exec'ing ssh-agent with the  startup  command,  instead  of  the
	      startup command directly.

       Additional  options  may  be supported by the local administrator.  See
       Xsession(5) for how this is accomplished.
