WMANAGER(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		   WMANAGER(1)

NAME
     wmanager -- choose	a window manager and launch it

SYNOPSIS
     wmanager [OPTIONS ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The wmanager program displays a choice of the window managers listed in
     the ~/.wmanagerrc file.  When one is picked, the related command is writ-
     ten to standard output, intended to be used by shell scripts.  If the
     program is	exited without choosing	a window manager, "-1" is written to
     standard output.

     -fg COLOR
	     Set the foreground	color.

     -bg COLOR
	     Set the background	color.

     -bg2 COLOR
	     Set the widget background color

     -di[splay]	host:n.n
	     Set the X display.

     -dn[d], -nod[nd]
	     Enable/disable drag & drop, probably does nothing.

     -g[eometry] WxH+X+Y
	     Set the window size and location.

     -i[conic]
	     Start as iconified.

     -k[bd], -nok[bd]
	     Enable/disable keyboard support.

     -na[me] CLASSNAME
	     Set the X window class.

     -s[cheme] SCHEME
	     Unknown, probably does nothing useful.

     -ti[tle] WINDOWTITLE
	     Set the window title.

     -to[oltips], -not[ooltips]
	     Enable/disable tooltips, probably does nothing.

EXAMPLE
     To	start using wmanager, create a ~/.wmanagerrc file - generally with
     wmanagerrc-update(1) - and	add something like the following at the	end of
     your ~/.xsession file:

	   WM="$(wmanager -geometry +570+585)"
	   ...
	   exec	$WM

     See also wmanager-loop(1) for a nicer way to start	wmanager.
