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.
