       ivman-launch - launch script for Ivman


       ivman-launch  [  --exit-with-session  <cmd>  ]  [ OPTIONS ] [ COMMAND [
       ARGS... ]]


       ivman-launch is a simple script used to launch Ivman.  Its sole purpose
       is to ensure Ivman is closed at the end of a user’s login session.  You
       can use it if your session manager does not properly close  Ivman  when
       you log out.

       ivman-launch  supports  the same command-line options as Ivman, and one
       additional option: --exit-with-session.  Thus, there is no point  using
       ivman-launch if you do not need to use this option.

       If you supply a COMMAND (with optional ARGS), the the specified command
       will be run after ivman is started, and ivman will be killed after that
       command exits.


       --exit-with-session <cmd>
              ivman-launch  will  block until the command ’cmd’ terminates, at
              which point it will kill Ivman and exit itself.  If the  command
              ’cmd’  is  not  running when ivman-launch is started, Ivman will
              exit immediately.  Note that this option implies Ivman  will  be
              called with the ’--nofork’ option.  option.

       --debug --nofork --system
              These flags be passed to the launched ivman command.


       ivman-launch --exit-with-session xinit &
              The  ivman  process  will  be started, then the xinit process is
              watched.   When  the  xinit  process  exits,  ivman  is  killed.
              Placing  this command in an ~/.xinitrc file would cause Ivman to
              launch in the background when your session begins, and exit when
              your session ends:

       ivman-launch /usr/bin/x-window-manager
              The ivman process is launched, then /usr/bin/x-window-manager is
              run, when x-window-manager exits, ivman is killed.  This  is  an
              example of how ivman might be launched from Xsession in order to
              chain several programs together in one session.
