Getting there

The options are:

Session name

The name for this session definition. This name identifies your session in the Session Definitions list.

Show clients on X terminal desktop

Select to run all clients in a single window, and have your display appear similar to the standard display of an X terminal. This is sometimes referred to as "single window" mode. This option is required for XDMCP connections.

Show clients on my desktop

Select to run clients in separate windows like operating system applications. This is sometimes referred to as "multiple window" mode.

On last client

Specify what action should happen when the last client is closed. For X Client sessions, this action occurs after the amount of time specified by Delay (secs). For XDMCP connections, this action occurs immediately when you log out.

 

Reset session

Reset the session. Resetting returns the server to the same state it had before clients used the session.

 

Stop session

Close the session.

 

Stop session and exit X Manager

Close the session. If this is the last running session, also exit X Manager.

 

Do nothing

Continue running the session without a reset. This is useful for applications that expect your environment to remain unchanged.

Delay (secs)

Specify the number of seconds of inactivity that must pass before the session is reset or stopped. If a client connects during this interval, the Reset session or Stop session setting is ignored. This setting applies X Client definitions, not XDMCP connections.

Note: This option does not apply if the session is running an XDMCP desktop. When you log off of the desktop, the On last client action occurs immediately (no timeout).

Automatically start session

Automatically start this session when X Manager starts.

Disable sharing

Disables sharing for X clients and XDMCP connections that use this session.

Limit number of session instances to

Sets a maximum limit on the number of instances of this session. This does not limit the number of clients that can run using the same session instance. It does not affect how many instances of other session types can run.
