sx

Tool to extract reports and run plug-ins against those extracted reports

NAME

sx - start an xorg server

SYNOPSIS

sx [command [arguments ...]]

DESCRIPTION

sx can be used to replace both xinit(1) and startx(1) for starting an Xorg server. By default sx will attempt execute sxrc unless a command argument is provided. The command may consistent of one or more arguments.

ENVIRONMENT

XAUTHORITY
This environment references a file which stores authorisation entries used to secure Xorg(1) . If this environment is not set then sx will create and use XDG_DATA_HOME/sx/xauthority instead while also exporting this value to XAUTHORITY.
XDG_CONFIG_HOME
The directory used when searching for sxrc. HOME/.config will be used if not set.
XDG_DATA_HOME
The directory used for storing the xauthority file. HOME/.local/share will be used if not set.

FILES

XDG_CONFIG_HOME/sx/sxrc
The default command started by sx. This file must be executable.
XDG_DATA_HOME/sx/xauthority
The default authority used by sx if an alternative file is not provided with XAUTHORITY.

NOTES

Since the addition of Xorg.wrap(1) it may be necessary to set allowed_users to anybody in /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config. This is due to sx attempting to run commands from within a subshell and is thusly not considered a console user.
