DESKTOP(1) General Commands Manual DESKTOP(1)
desktop - switch the window system to be invoked upon login
desktop [ openwin ] [ sunview ]
Available beginning with SunOS 4.1.1 Rev B.
desktop switches the window system to be invoked upon your login
between OpenWindows and SunView. This only applies if the user is
using the default .cshrc file supplied from /usr/lib/Cshrc and has not
modified the window system invocation code section. With no arguments,
desktop prompts you to enter the window system you want invoked. The
desired window system can also be supplied on the command line.
If the add_user (8) program is used to add a new user's account, the
/usr/lib/Cshrc file is copied into the file .cshrc in the user's home
directory. Alternatively, this may be done manually. In either case,
if this file's window system invocation code is not thereafter modi-
fied, desktop switches window systems as specified.
A confirmation message is displayed for the window system chosen. An
instructional message is then displayed indicating the steps to execute
to activate this: exiting the system and logging back in.
