NAME

mate-session-save - End or save the current MATE session  

SYNOPSIS

mate-session-save [--logout] [--force-logout] [--logout-dialog] [--shutdown-dialog] [--gui] [--kill [--silent]]  

DESCRIPTION

The mate-session-save program can be used from a MATE session to either end the current MATE session or save a snapshot of the currently running applications (but not both). This session will be later restored at your next MATE session.  

USAGE

The --gui option will report errors in dialog boxes instead of printing to stderr.

If called with the --logout option, the current MATE session will be ended, unless logging out has been inhibited by an application. The --force-logout option can be used to end the session regardless of the inhibition state.

When the --logout-dialog option is given, the standard dialog displaying logout options is displayed. When --shutdown-dialog option is given, the standard dialog displaying shutdown options is displayed.

The --kill and --silent options are deprecated. The --kill option is equivalent to the --logout-dialog option. If --silent is used with --kill, then it will behave as if --logout was used.

The session is not saved when mate-session-save is called with any of the options ending the session.
