MATE-WM(1)		    General Commands Manual		    MATE-WM(1)

NAME
       mate-wm - Start the window manager configured by	the user

SYNOPSIS
       mate-wm [--default-wm=WINDOWMANAGER] [--sm-client-id=ID]

DESCRIPTION
       The  mate-wm  program starts the	window manager configured by the user.
       If the user has not chosen a window manager it will launch a MATE  com-
       pliant window manager.

USAGE
       The   user   can	  define   his	 preferred  window  manager  with  the
       /org/mate/desktop/session/required-components/windowmanager dconf  key.
       The value of this key should be the name	of the desktop file of the de-
       sired window manager, without its .desktop extension. If	 this  key  is
       set to mate-wm, then mate-wm will simply	look for an appropriate	window
       manager.	The user can also override the selection of a  window  manager
       by setting the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable.

       If  the	--default-wm option is used, mate-wm will use WINDOWMANAGER as
       window manager if the WINDOW_MANAGER environment	variable  is  not  set
       and  if the /org/mate/desktop/session/required-components/windowmanager
       dconf key does not define a specific window manager, or if the  config-
       ured window manager cannot be found.

       The  --sm-client-id  option  is translated to an	appropriate option de-
       pending on which	window manager will be started.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       --default-wm=WINDOWMANAGER
	      Define the default window	manager	to start if no window  manager
	      is  configured,  or  if  the configured window manager cannot be
	      found.

       --sm-client-id=ID
	      Specify the session management ID	when connecting	to the session
	      manager.

ENVIRONMENT
       mate-wm	uses  the  value of the	WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable to
       let the user override the configured window manager.
