 +? Launch GNOME services on startup
 +! Enable this option if you need the GNOME keyring daemon to be run on startup. ​
 +? Launch KDE services on startup
 +! Enable this option if you plan to run KDE applications as part of your Xfce Desktop session. This will notably increase the startup time, but on the other hand, KDE applications will startup faster. Some KDE applications may not work at all if you don't enable this option.
 +? Manage remote applications
 +! Allow the session manager to manage applications running on remote hosts. Since this option may constitute a security risk, by listening to a TCP port on your system, do not enable it unless you know what you are doing.
 +! System administrators may want to disable this option globally using the session managers [[advanced#​Kiosk Mode|KIOSK capabilities]].
