NAME

METACITY - minimal GTK2 Window Manager  

SYNOPSIS

metacity [--display=DISPLAY] [--replace] [--sm-client-id=ID] [--sm-disable] [--sm-save-file=FILENAME] [--version] [--help]  

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 technical users; these users may want to investigate other available window managers for use with GNOME or standalone.  

OPTIONS

--display=DISPLAY
Connect to X display DISPLAY.
--replace
a window manager which is running is replaced by metacity. Users are encouraged to change the GNOME window manager by running the new WM with the --replace or -replace option, and subsequently saving the session.
--sm-client-id=ID
Specify a session management ID.
--sm-disable
Disable the session management.
--sm-save-file=FILENAME
Load a session from FILENAME.
--version
Print the version number.
-?, --help
Show summary of options.
 

CONFIGURATION

metacity configuration can be found under Preferences->Windows and Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts on the menu-panel. Advanced configuration can be achieved directly through gconf editing (gconf-editor or gconftool-2).
