Bonobo Activation Server(1) Bonobo Activation Server(1)

NAME bonobo-activation-server - GNOME component tracker

DESCRIPTION This application tracks information about installed components and bro- kers components, in conjunction with its client library; libbonobo- activation.

It reads the component descriptions from ${pre- fix}/lib/bonobo/servers/*.server. These files provide an XML descrip- tion of a components capabilities which can be queried and manipulated by clients from the client library.

Bonobo-activation-server also ensures that the minimum neccessary num- ber of servers for your display setup are running.

Bonobo-activation-server executes all components with the environment inherited from the first process to start the server. In addition to using your prefix, it will examine the BONOBO_ACTIVATION_PATH and the GNOME2_PATH environment variables to find .server files.

In addition it examines an XML configuration file in ${pre- fix}/etc/bonobo-activation/bonobo-activation-config.xml
