       Xsession.options - configuration options for Xsession(5)


       /etc/X11/Xsession.options  contains  a set of flags that determine some
       of the behavior of the Xsession(5) Bourne shell  (sh(1))  script.   See
       the Xsession(5) manpage for further information.

       Xsession.options may contain comments, which begin with a hash mark and
       end at the next newline, just like comments in shell scripts.  The rest
       of  the file consists of options which are expressed as words separated
       by hyphens, with only one option per line.  If  an  option  is  present
       with  the  "no-"  prefix,  or  absent,  it is disabled, otherwise it is
       considered enabled.

       Available options are:

              If the "failsafe" argument is passed to the Xsession script,  an
              emergency   X   session   is  invoked,  consisting  of  only  an
              x-terminal-emulator(1) in the  upper-left  hand  corner  of  the
              screen.     No    window    manager    is    started.    If   an
              x-terminal-emulator  is  not  available,   the   session   exits

              If   users   have  a  file  called  .Xresources  in  their  home
              directories, these resources will be  merged  with  the  default
              resources when they log in.

              If  users have an executable file called .Xsession in their home
              directories, it can be used as the startup  program  for  the  X
              session  (see  Xsession(5)).   If  the  file  is present but not
              executable, it may still be used, but is assumed to be a  Bourne
              shell script, and executed with sh(1).

              If  the  ssh-agent(1)  program is available and no agent process
              appears to be running already, the X session will be invoked  by
              exec’ing  ssh-agent  with  the  startup  command, instead of the
              startup command directly.

              Starts  up  a  D-BUS  session  bus  for  the  display  and  sets
              environment  variables  so  that applications can connect to it,
              using dbus-session(1).

              Invoke xrdb(1) with the -cpp option, to make it use cpp(1)  when
              processing resource files.

       Additional  options  may  be supported by the local administrator.  See
       Xsession(5) for how this is accomplished.
