Session Manager Proxy
[-clientId id] [-restore saveFile] [-version]
Specifies the session ID used
by smproxy in the previous session.
Specifies the file used by
smproxy to save state in the previous session.
Prints the program version and
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:
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
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
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.
