    Command:

    startx

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           startx  [  [ client ] options ... ] [ -- [ server ] [ display ] options
           ... ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The startx script is a front end to xinit(1) that provides  a  somewhat
           nicer  user interface for running a single session of the X Window Sys-
           tem.  It is often run with no arguments.
    
           Arguments immediately following the startx command are used to start  a
           client in the same manner as xinit(1).  The special argument '--' marks
           the end of client arguments and the beginning of  server  options.   It
           may  be convenient to specify server options with startx to change on a
           per-session basis the default color depth, the server's notion  of  the
           number  of dots-per-inch the display device presents, or take advantage
           of a different server layout, as permitted by the  Xorg(1)  server  and
           specified in the xorg.conf(5) configuration.  Some examples of specify-
           ing server arguments follow; consult the manual page for your X  server
           to determine which arguments are legal.
    
                  startx -- -depth 16
    
                  startx -- -dpi 100
    
                  startx -- -layout Multihead
    
           To  determine  the  client to run, startx first looks for a file called
           .xinitrc in the user's home directory.  If that is not found,  it  uses
           the  file  xinitrc  in  the  xinit  library directory.  If command line
           client options are given, they override this behavior and revert to the
           xinit(1)  behavior.  To determine the server to run, startx first looks
           for a file called .xserverrc in the user's home directory.  If that  is
           not  found,  it uses the file xserverrc in the xinit library directory.
           If command line server options are given, they override  this  behavior
           and  revert  to  the xinit(1) behavior.  Users rarely need to provide a
           .xserverrc file.  See the xinit(1) manual page for more details on  the
           arguments.
    
           The   system-wide   xinitrc  and  xserverrc  files  are  found  in  the
           /etc/X11/xinit directory.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

           DISPLAY                  This variable gets set to the name of the dis-
                                    play  to  which  clients should connect.  Note
                                    that this gets set, not read.
    
           XAUTHORITY               This variable, if not  already  defined,  gets
                                    set  to  $(HOME)/.Xauthority.  This is to pre-
                                    vent the X server,  if  not  given  the  -auth
                                    argument,  from automatically setting up inse-
                                    cure host-based authentication for  the  local
                                    host.   See  the  Xserver(1)  and Xsecurity(7)
