smproxy — Session Manager Proxy

-restore saveFile

Specifies the file used by smproxy to save state in the previous session.

Description

smproxy 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:

- The 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 WM_CLIENT_MACHINE properties.

or ...

- The 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 properties.

An application 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.
