Starting the ToolTalk Messaging Daemon

The ToolTalk messaging daemon, ttsession, enables independent applications to communicate with each other without having direct knowledge of each other. Applications create and send ToolTalk messages to communicate with each other. ttsession communicates on the network to deliver messages.

To alter the command-line options of ttsession, modify the dtstart_ttsession variable. To change the dtstart_ttsession variable for all users, create an executable sh or ksh script (for example /etc/dt/config/Xsession.d/myvars), and set dtstart_ttsession as follows:

dtstart_ttsession="/usr/dt/bin/ttsession -s"

Users can similarly change the ttsession options for their own sessions by setting dtstart_ttsession in HomeDirectory/.dtprofile.

For more information about ttsession options, see the ttsession man page. For more information on ttsession, see Common Desktop Environment: ToolTalk Messaging Overview.
