XSM(1)                  FreeBSD General Commands Manual                 XSM(1)

NAME
       smproxy - Session Manager Proxy

SYNOPSIS
       smproxy [-clientId id] [-restore saveFile]

OPTIONS
       -clientId id
               Specifies the session ID used by smproxy in the previous
               session.

       -restore saveFile
               Specifies the file used by smproxy to save state in the
               previous session.

DESCRIPTION
       smproxy allows X applications that do not support X11R6 session
       management to participate in an X11R6 session.

       In order for smproxy to act as a proxy for an X application, one of the
       following must be true:

       - The application maps a top level window containing the
       WM_CLIENT_LEADER property.  This property provides a pointer to the
       client leader window which contains the WM_CLASS, WM_NAME, WM_COMMAND,
       and WM_CLIENT_MACHINE properties.

       or ...

       - The application maps a top level window which does not contain the
       WM_CLIENT_LEADER property.  However, this top level window contains the
       WM_CLASS, WM_NAME, WM_COMMAND, and WM_CLIENT_MACHINE properties.

       An application that support the WM_SAVE_YOURSELF protocol will receive
       a WM_SAVE_YOURSELF client message each time the session manager issues
       a checkpoint or shutdown.  This allows the application to save state.
       If an application does not support the WM_SAVE_YOURSELF protocol, then
       the proxy will provide enough information to the session manager to
       restart the application (using WM_COMMAND), but no state will be
       restored.
