gnome-session-selector: Selects a session to use with gnome-session

NAME

gnome-session-selector - Selects a session to use with gnome-session

SYNOPSIS

gnome-session-selector [session]

DESCRIPTION

gnome-session-selector

can be used from a xsession desktop file to select a session before gnome-session is run. gnome-session reads and stores its session in the $XDG_DATA_HOME/gnome-session/saved-session directory. gnome-session-selector works by replacing the saved-session directory by a symlink to another directory. Since the session name is used as the directory name, it may not contain '/' characters or begin with a '.'.

When a session name is specified, gnome-session-selector will create a symlink to select this session.

When started without arguments, gnome-session-selector will present a dialog that allows to choose one of the existing sessions or create a new one.
