icewm-session - X.Org session manager provider with IceWM
icewm-session is an implementation of X.Org session manager and can be run from X11 session setup. It runs icewm as default window manager and handles the startup and life cycle control of the WM and all related support applications.
Let IceWM load preferences from FILE.
Let IceWM load the theme FILE.
Use FILE as the IceWM window manager.
Use a 32-bit visual for translucency.
Do not start icewmbg.
Do not start icewmtray. This is only applicable if IceWM was explicitly configured to use an external icewmtray process.
Also start icesound.
Use DISPLAY to connect to the X server.
If this option is missing then DISPLAY
is read from the environment variable
Use a slower synchronous mode communication with X11 server.
Print a brief usage statement to
stdout and exit.
Print the program version to
stdout and exit.
Print copying permissions to
stdout for the program and exit.
On startup icewm-session executes the following steps.
From the file
env in the configuration directory
it loads additional environment variables, if that file exists.
Then it will start
icewmbg to manage root background colors and images.
It may also start
icesound, if this was enabled at configuration time.
icewm is started.
If there exists an executable script
startup in the configuration
directory, it will be executed. It may contain commands to initialize X11
xset, load keyboard configuration, start a compositing
compton and load system tray applications.
When icewm exits or is told to exit, icewm-session will execute
shutdown script, if it exists in the configuration directory.
When this finishes, icewm-session will terminate icewm, icewmbg
and icesound. Finally icewm-session will exit.
If the icewm process crashes then icewm-session will attempt to restart
it. If two such crashes occur in a short period, then icewm-session will
attempt to popup a dialog using either
zenity. This dialog asks if the user wishes to continue restarting
icewm or abort execution of icewm-session.
icewm-session had no known bugs at the time of release. Please report bugs for current versions to the source code repository at Github.
