mwmrc - The M*tif Window Manager configuration file

The LessTif window manager mwm supports both a global configuration file /etc/X11/mwm/system.mwmrc and a per-user configation file ~/.mwmrc.

Each mwm configuration file consist of blocks of bindings. Each block consists of a block type keyword, a name and a set of entries between curly braces (`{' and '}').
An exclamation mark (`!') introduces a comment. Comments extend to the end of the line.

There are three types of blocks:
Menu bindings
Button bindings
Key bindings

Menu bindings are introduced by the Menu keyword. The generic form of the entries is label mnemonic accelerator function . Both mnemonic and accelerator may be empty. For example:
"Foo bar" _R Alt<Key>F5 f.restore

Button bindings are introduced by the Buttons keyword. The entries each are Button name Context Function . For example:
<Btn3Down> icon|frame f.post_wmenu

Key bindings are very similar to button bindings. The entries each are Key name Context Function . For example:
Alt<Key>Tab root|icon|window f.next_key

A label is either a plain string, or a bitmap. Bitmaps are indicated as "@" followed by the filename. For example:
mailer @fortytwo.bmp

A mnemonic is an underscore ("_") followed by a single character. For example:
_M

An accelerator is a key name.

A button name is Btn followed by the number (1..5) and an action (Up, Down, Click, Click2); for example:
Btn2Click

A context is a single string consisting of bar (`|') separated object names (root, icon, menub, minimizeb, maximizeb , window, title, frame, border); for example:
icon|title

A function is a string starting with "f.". The functions are: f.beep, f.circle_down, f.circle_up, f.desk, f.exec, f.focus_color, f.focus_key, f.goto_page, f.kill, f.lower, f.maximize, f.menu, f.minimize, f.move, f.next_cmap, f.next_key, f.nop, f.normalize, f.normalize_and_raise, f.pack_icons, f.pass_keys, f.post_wmenu, f.prev_cmap, f.prev_key, f.quit_mwm, f.raise, f.raise_lower, f.refresh, f.refresh_win, f.resize, f.restart, f.restore, f.restore_and_raise, f.screen, f.send_msg, f.separator, f.set_behavior, f.title, f.toggle_page, f.window_list.

For a complete example, check out /etc/X11/mwm/system.mwmrc or look at the system.mwmrc distributed with the LessTif sources.

mwm was written by the LessTif project, http://www.lesstif.org/ and others. This manpage was written by Ray Dassen <jdassen@debian.org>.
