WAYLAND-LOGOUT(1)	FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual	     WAYLAND-LOGOUT(1)

NAME
     wayland-logout -- generic logout utility for wayland compositors

DESCRIPTION
     wayland-logout is a compositor agnostic utility for simulating a logout
     with any wayland compositor.

     It	sends a	SIGTERM	signal(3) to the running compositor PID	which is ob-
     tained by looking at the environment variables.

ENVIRONMENT
     wayland-logout uses the WAYLAND_DISPLAY and XDG_RUNTIME_DIR environment
     variables to get the socket(2) corresponding to the compositor instance.

EXIT STATUS
     wayland-logout exits with non-zero	if an error has	occurred along with
     the error reasoning and exits with	0 on success.

EXAMPLES
     To	kill the current compositor instance, run inside the compositor	envi-
     ronment:
	   $ wayland-logout

     A typical use case, to kill a specific compositor instance	of another
     user (with	uid=1002), run as the other user (or as	root):
	   $ env -i XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/1002 WAYLAND_DISPLAY=wayland-4
	   wayland-logout
     or
	   $ WAYLAND_DISPLAY=/run/user/1002/wayland-4 wayland-logout
