WMANAGERRC-UPDATE(1)	  BSD General Commands Manual	  WMANAGERRC-UPDATE(1)

NAME
     wmanagerrc-update -- update your wmanager settings	automatically

SYNOPSIS
     wmanagerrc-update

DESCRIPTION
     The wmanagerrc-update program creates or updates the ~/.wmanagerrc	file
     with a list of X11	window managers	currently installed on the system.  On
     systems that do not have a	convention for registering X window managers,
     wmanagerrc-update simply copies the contents of the ~/.wmanagerrc.user
     file to ~/.wmanagerrc.

     On	systems	that register the installed X window managers, the
     wmanagerrc-update program adds all	of them	to the wmanager(1) configura-
     tion so that they are available soon after	installation.  Currently, only
     Debian GNU/Linux and similar systems that use the update-alternaties(8)
     mechanism are supported.  Locally installed window	managers and things
     not registered as alternatives for	x-window-manager(1) can	be added to
     the file ~/.wmanagerrc.user in the	.wmanagerrc format; see	the
     wmanager(1) README	file, usually /usr/share/doc/wmanager/README.gz, for
     more information.	The wmanagerrc-update program uses the entries first
     from ~/.wmanagerrc.user, then from	the the	registered window managers, in
     the order of update-alternatives(8) priorities.  You can override this by
     listing entries in	wanted order in	~/.wmanagerrc.order, separated by
     whitespace.

BUGS
     Concurrent	wmanagerrc-update processes may	clobber	the .wmanagerrc	file.
