X Version 11 (Release 6.1)
Session Manager Proxy
smproxy [-clientId id] [-restore saveFile]
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:
An application that supports 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.
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.
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
Specifies the session ID used by smproxy in the previous session.
Specifies the file used by smproxy to save state in the previous session.
