NAME

       Xsession.options - configuration options for Xsession(5)

DESCRIPTION

       /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.
       Options are enabled by simply placing them in the file; they are disabled by prefixing the
       option name with ‘no-’.

       Available options are:

       allow-failsafe
              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
              program is not available, the session exits immediately.

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

       allow-user-xsession
              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).

       use-session-dbus
              If the dbus package is installed, the session bus will be activated  at  X  session
              launch.

       use-ssh-agent
              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.

       All  of  the above options are enabled by default.  Additional options may be supported by
       the local administrator.  Xsession(5) describes how this is accomplished.
