Parameters in /sessionstart/

In this section, we will describe all the parameters currently used by the session startup scripts.


The initial color of the background that is set early during session startup. The default color is white.


A PNG image used as the initial background. The image will always be zoomed to fit each individual monitor. The default is a ThinLinc- branded image.

An empty value will disable the background image. If no image is set, or if the image contains transparency then the color set by /sessionstart/background_color will shine through.


The default virtual keyboard layout used by Xvnc. The protocol is not dependent on this being configured, but some applications can misbehave if a different virtual layout is configured compared to the real keyboard layout on the client device.

A list of possible keyboard layouts is given from this command:

$ man /opt/thinlinc/share/man/man7/xkeyboard-config.7
