Solaris Common Desktop Environment: Advanced User's and System Administrator's Guide

Starting a Session

Session Manager is started through /usr/dt/bin/Xsession. When the user logs in using the Login Manager, Xsession is started by default.

Optionally, the user can log in using the traditional character mode (getty) login, and start Session Manager manually using tools that start an X server, such as xinit. For example: xinit /usr/dt/bin/Xsession.
