PAM_CK_CONNECTOR(8)	       ConsoleKit Manual	   PAM_CK_CONNECTOR(8)

NAME
       pam_ck_connector	- Register session with	ConsoleKit

SYNOPSIS
       pam_ck_connector.so [debug]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_ck_connector PAM	module registers a login session with the
       system-wide ConsoleKit daemon. This PAM module should be	used with
       caution;	only local login managers such as login(1) should use this.
       Since the ConsoleKit daemon can accept both an tty and an X11 display
       the normal parameters set by PAM	are not	always useful.

       An application can therefore override these with	the PAM	environment
       variables CKCON_TTY, CKCON_X11_DISPLAY and CKCON_X11_DISPLAY_DEVICE
       (the application	should remember	to unset these before starting the
       login session).

       Also note that the ConsoleKit daemon may	reject registration attempts
       if the given set	of data	are inconsistent with each other. More more
       information, see	the ConsoleKit documentation on	the
       OpenSessionWithParameters() method call on the
       org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager D-Bus	interface.

       If registration with the	ConsoleKit daemon succeeds, this PAM module
       will set	the environment	variable XDG_SESSION_COOKIE which is used to
       defined membership of a login session.

       This PAM	module has the side effect that	it creates a connection	to the
       system message bus that is kept open until the session ends. This is
       used by the ConsoleKit daemon to	track the life-cycle of	the session
       and, as such, should the	login manager crash, the session will be
       properly	unregistered.

OPTIONS
       debug
	  Print	debug information.

       nox11
	  Do not create	a session if PAM specifies an X11 display instead of a
	  /dev/tty terminal.
