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 written 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.

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.
