PAM-PANEL-ICON(1)								PAM-PANEL-ICON(1)

NAME
       pam-panel-icon - A notification area indicator of pam_timestamp status

SYNOPSIS
       pam-panel-icon

DESCRIPTION
       pam-panel-icon  should  be automatically started when starting an X11 desktop environment.
       For example, in GNOME gnome-session should be configured to start  pam-panel-icon.   In	a
       properly configured system it should never be necessary to start pam-panel-icon manually.

       pam-panel-icon  uses  pam_timestamp_check(8)  to watch the pam_timestamp timestamp status.
       If the pam_timestamp authorization is active, allowing an unprivileted user to temporarily
       authenticate  as  the  root user without providing a password, an icon in the notification
       area of the panel is displayed.	The icon allows dropping the authorization immediately.

EXIT STATUS
       Ordinarily, pam-panel-icon keeps running until the X11  desktop	session  ends,	and  then
       returns 0.  pam-panel-icon only returns with non-zero status on unexpected error.

FILES
       /sbin/pam_timestamp_check
	      A hard-coded location of the pam_timestamp_check executable.

SEE ALSO
       pam_timestamp(8), pam_timestamp_check(8)
