Failed to connect to the session manager: SESSION_MANAGER environment variable not defined

Failed to connect to session manager: Failed to connect to the session manager: SESSION_MANAGER environment variable not defined 
trying this to get the Session.
comes up blank. Using startx in slack to start WindowMaker. Setting an Image to the desktop using Xlib, and imlib2 gets me using that 0_TMPFILE in the code I am using. Stripped off some other code I am using that is using the same code. I just striped it down to the basics of init the image stuff, set the image with a filename, then display it on the desktop. removing all of the imlib2 function calls to set the image to tile and such, it is just a standard blend image into image then display it to the desktop.

if it is not registering a session manager because it is not actually using one, its using xinit. so I am baffled at this point to why it is using O_TMPFILE , and for what specifically? the image, the pixmap, what?

anymore information needed please ask.
