NAME
       awesome2	- awesome2 window manager

SYNOPSIS
       awesome2	[ -v | --version ] [ -h	| --help ] [ -k	| --check ] [ -s |
       --sync ]	[ --config | -c	configuration file ]

DESCRIPTION
       awesome2	is a window manager for	X. It manages windows in different
       layouts,	like floating or tiled.	Either layout can be applied
       dynamically, optimizing the environment for the application in use and
       the task	performed.

       In tiled	layout windows are managed in a	master and stacking area. The
       master area contains the	windows	which currently	need most attention,
       whereas the stacking area contains all other windows. In	floating
       layout windows can be resized and moved freely. Dialog windows are
       always managed floating,	regardless of the layout applied. The spiral
       and dwindle layout are special cases of the tiled layout	where the
       stacking	area is	arranged in a spiral for the former or as a
       rectangular fractal for the later.

       Windows are grouped by tags. Each window	can be tagged with one or
       multiple	tags. Selecting	certain	tags displays all windows with these
       tags.

       awesome2	contains a small status	bar which displays all available tags,
       the layout, the title of	the focused window, and	a status text. A
       floating	window is indicated with an empty circle and a maximized
       floating	window is indicated with a circle square before	the windows
       title. The selected tags	are indicated with a different color. The tags
       of the focused window are indicated with	a filled square	in the top
       left corner. The	tags which are applied to one or more windows are
       indicated with an empty square in the top left corner. awesome2 can
       draw a small border around windows to indicate the focus	state.

BUGS
       Of course there's no bug	in awesome2. But there may be unexpected
       behaviours.

       Java applications which use the XToolkit/XAWT backend may draw grey
       windows only. The XToolkit/XAWT backend breaks ICCCM-compliance in
       recent JDK 1.5 and early	JDK 1.6	versions, because it assumes a
       reparenting window manager. As a	workaround you can use JDK 1.4 (which
       doesn't contain the XToolkit/XAWT backend) or you can set the following
       environment variable (to	use the	older Motif backend instead):
       AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit
