NAME
       METACITY	- minimal GTK3 Window Manager

SYNOPSIS
       metacity	[--display=DISPLAY] [--replace]	[--sm-client-id=ID] [--sm-dis-

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly metacity.

       metacity	 is a minimal X	window manager aimed at	nontechnical users and
       is designed to integrate	well with the GNOME desktop.   metacity	 lacks
       some features that may be expected by traditional UNIX or other techni-
       cal users; these	users may want to investigate other  available	window
       managers	for use	with GNOME or standalone.

       --replace
	      a	 window	 manager  which	 is  running  is replaced by metacity.
	      Users are	encouraged to change the GNOME window manager by  run-
	      ning  the	new WM with the	--replace or -replace option, and sub-
	      sequently	saving the session.

       --no-composite

	      decorations

	      Show summary of options.

CONFIGURATION
