xmsm is simple session manager that provides session configuration and
screen locking and also launches the window manager and the toolbox.

xmtoolbox is an application launcher/menu configured with a simple
text file.
It also communicates with the session manager to provide lock, log out,
and shutdown commands.

The session manager may be run from XDM by setting the
DisplayManager*session X resource in xdm-config to xmsession, or by
execing xmsm from ~/.Xprofile.
Just make sure to test whether it works by running 'xinit xmsession'
before doing any of the above. Note that 'xmsession' is just a shell
script that sets up the environment for xmsm, and is not needed when
this has been done already.
xmsm is installed suid root, this is required for screen locking and
running sbin commands. Privileges are dropped at startup and are
reacquired only when necessary.
System shutdown, reboot and suspend commands can be altered at compile
time only. Edit constants in smconf.h, or override them in CFLAGS if

copy /etc/X11/toolboxrc to ~/.toolboxrc for per-user configuration
