Projects / ROX-Session


ROX-Session is a simple and easy-to-configure session manager. It allows you to change window managers without logging out (and copes with window managers crashing) and provides a graphical configuration box for your X settings (default font, cursor blinking, mouse behavior, etc.). The default session starts ROX-Filer managing the background and one panel, but it can be easily reconfigured for other purposes.
