       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.   Options  are
       enabled	by  simply placing them in the file; they are disabled by pre
       fixing the option name with no-.

       Available options are:

	      If the failsafe argument is passed to the Xsession script,  an
	      emergency  X  session is invoked, consisting of only an x-termi
	      nal-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.

	      If users have a file called .Xresources in their	home  directo
	      ries,  these  resources  will  be  merged  with  the  default  X
	      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  exe
	      cutable,	it  may  still	be used, but is assumed to be a Bourne
	      shell script, and executed with sh(1).

	      If the dbus package is installed, the session bus will be  acti
	      vated at X session launch.

	      If  the  ssh-agent(1)  program is available and no agent process
	      appears to be running already, the X session will be invoked  by
	      execing  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.

       Stephen Early, Mark Eichin, and Branden Robinson developed  Debians  X
       session handling scripts.  Branden Robinson wrote this manual page.
