xfce4-session(1)	    General Commands Manual	      xfce4-session(1)

NAME
       xfce4-session - Starts up the Xfce Desktop Environment

SYNOPSIS
       xfce4-session

DESCRIPTION
       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 de-
       fault session that includes the standard	Xfce programs if no saved ses-
       sion 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.

OPTIONS
       xfce4-session takes the following command line options:

       --disable-tcp
	      Disable  binding to TCP ports in the ICE layer. This is not pos-
	      sible 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.

       --help Print a help screen and exit.

       --version
	      Output version information and exit.

ENVIRONMENT
       xfce4-session's behaviour is  affected  by  the	following  environment
       variables.

       XDG_CONFIG_HOME
	      Specifies	the root for all user-specific configuration files. If
	      this environment variable	is unset, it defaults to ~/.config/

       XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
	      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 sepa-
	      rated with a colon.

       XDG_CACHE_HOME
	      Specifies	the root for all user-specific cache data. If this en-
	      vironment	variable is unset, it defaults to ~/.cache/

       XFSM_VERBOSE
	      When defined, this environment variable enables  debugging  mes-
	      sages  to	 be saved to ~/.xfce4-session.verbose-log The log file
	      from the last session run	with this environment variable set  is
	      retained	at  ~/.xfce4-session.verbose-log.last  These debugging
	      messages are useful for troubleshooting and development.

FILES
       xfce4-session  reads  its  configuration	 from  Xfconf.	 xfce4-session
       stores its session data into $XDG_CACHE_HOME/sessions/.
