matecomponent-activation-server - MATE component tracker


This application tracks information about installed components and brokers components, in conjunction with its client library; libmatecomponent-activation.

It reads the component descriptions from ${prefix}/lib/matecomponent/servers/*.server. These files provide an XML description of a components capabilities which can be queried and manipulated by clients from the client library.

MateComponent-activation-server also ensures that the minimum necessary number of servers for your display setup are running.

MateComponent-activation-server executes all components with the environment inherited from the first process to start the server. In addition to using your prefix, it will examine the MATECOMPONENT_ACTIVATION_PATH and the MATE2_PATH environment variables to find .server files.

In addition it examines an XML configuration file in ${prefix}/etc/matecomponent-activation/matecomponent-activation-config.xml
