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.
Connect to X display DISPLAY.
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.
Specify a session management ID.
Disable the session management.
Load a session from FILENAME.
Print the version number.
Show summary of options.
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).
The original manual page was written by Thom May <firstname.lastname@example.org>. It
was updated by Akira TAGOH <email@example.com> for the Debian GNU/Linux
system (with permission to use by others), and then updated by Luke
Morton and Philip O'Brien for inclusion in metacity.
