gnome-session - Starts up the GNOME desktop environment

SYNOPSIS
       gnome-session  [--choosesession]  [--failsafe]  [--purge-delay=DELAY] [--warn-delay=DELAY]
       [--suicide-delay=DELAY] [session-name]

DESCRIPTION
       The gnome-session program starts up the GNOME desktop environment.  This command is  typi-
       cally  executed	by  your login manager (either gdm, xdm, or from your X startup scripts).
       It will load either your last session, or it will provide a default session for	the  user
       as defined by the system administrator (or the default GNOME installation on your system).

       You can optionally specify a specific session name to restore.

       gnome-session  is  an  X11R6 session manager.  It can manage GNOME applications as well as
       any X11R6 SM compliant.

       gnome-session uses the contents of the  ~/.gnome/session file for starting up as specified
       by  the "Current Sesssion" key in the ~/.gnome/session-options file.  Various default val-
       ues are provided in case the file entry does not exist.

       If the  session	file  does  not  exist,  gnome-session	will  use  the	contents  of  the
       /usr/share/gnome/default.session file.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       --choose-session=ARG
	      User  can  specify  a  session  to load, as opposed to the session specified in the
	      ~/.gnome/session-options file. If that entry does not exist in the ~/.gnome/session
	      file (or if that file doesn't exist), it will use the default session and all saves
	      to that session will be to the new session name.

       --failsafe
	      Fail safe operations mode: only reads saved sessions from the default.session file.

       --purge-delay=ARG
	      The number of millisecond that gnome-session will wait for clients to register,  if
	      you use 0 it will wait forever (default value: 30,000 milliseconds).

       --warn-delay=ARG
	      The  number  of millisecond that gnome-session will wait for clients to respond, if
	      you use 0 it will wait forever (default value: 10,000 milliseconds).

       --suicide-delay=ARG
	      The number of millisecond that gnome-session will wait for clients to die,  if  you
	      use 0 it will wait forever (default value: 10,000 milliseconds).

ENVIRONMENT
       gnome-session  accepts  all  of the standard environment variables used by gnome programs,
       other than the SESSION_MANAGER environment variable. [ xref to a  manpage  where  this  is
       documented.  ]  gnome-session  also  sets several environment variables for the use of its
       child processes.

       SESSION_MANAGER

	      This variable is used by session-manager aware clients to contact gnome-session.

       DISPLAY

	      This variable is set to the X display being used by gnome-session. Note that if the
	      --display  option  is used this might be different from the setting of the environ-
	      ment variable when gnome-session is invoked.

       If you find bugs in the gnome-session program, please report these using bug-buddy or  the
       gnome-bug script included with the GNOME libraries distribution.
