This manual page documents briefly the xfce4-session command.
The xfce4-session program starts up the Xfce Desktop Environment and is typically executed by your login manager (e.g. xdm, gdm, kdm, wdm or from your X startup scripts). It will load your last session or a default session that includes the standard Xfce programs if no saved session is available.
xfce4-session is an standard X11R6 session manager that can manage any X11R6 SM compliant program, including GNOME and KDE programs.
xfce4-session uses the contents of the ~/.cache/sessions/ directory for starting previously saved sessions.
xfce4-session takes the following command line options:
- Disable binding to TCP ports in the ICE layer. This is not possible on every platform. If you use this option on a platform that does not support it, xfce4-session will print a warning message and ignore the setting.:
- Print a help screen and exit.:
- Output version information and exit.:
xfce4-session's behaviour is affected by the following environment variables.
- Specifies the root for all user-specific configuration files. If this environment variable is unset, it defaults to ~/.config/:
- Set of preference ordered base directories relative to which configuration files should be searched in addition to the $XDG_CONFIG_HOME base directory. The directories should be separated with a colon.:
- Specifies the root for all user-specific cache data. If this environment variable is unset, it defaults to ~/.cache/:
xfce4-session reads its configuration from Xfconf. xfce4-session stores its session data into $XDG_CACHE_HOME/sessions/.
