The Sessions preference tool enables you to manage your sessions. You can set session preferences, and specify which applications to start when you start a session. You can configure sessions to save the state of applications in the Oracle Solaris Desktop, and to restore the state when you start another session. You can also use this preference tool to manage multiple GNOME sessions.
You can customize settings in the following functional areas:
Use the Session Options tab to manage multiple sessions, and to set preferences for the current session. The following table lists the session options that you can modify.
Table 9-16 Session Options
Use the Startup Programs tab of the Sessions preference tool to specify non-session-managed startup applications. Startup applications are applications that start automatically when you start a session. You specify the commands that run the non-session-managed applications in the Startup Programs tab. The commands execute automatically when you log in.
You can also start session-managed applications automatically. For more information, see Setting Session Preferences.
