This manual page documents briefly the xfce4-session command.

The xfce4-session program starts up the Xfce Desktop Environment and is typicaly executed by your login manager (e.g. xdm, gdm, kdm, wdm or from your X startup scripts). It will load your last session or a default session that includes the standard Xfce programs if no saved session is available.

xfce4-session is an standard X11R6 session manager that can manage any X11R6 SM compliant program, including GNOME and KDE programs.

xfce4-session uses the contens of the ~/.cache/sessions/ directory for starting previously saved sessions.
