DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the wmbutton command.
wmbutton is a 64x64 pixel application that displays nine buttons and can be used as dockapp for X window managers such as Window Maker, AfterStep, BlackBox, and Enlightenment. Each of these buttons can be configured via a configuration file to run just about any application you would like to. Basically, if you can type it in a shell command, wmbutton can run it.
wmbutton is configured using a configuration file, ~/.wmbutton (or /etc/wmbutton.conf). Its format is documented in the "Configuration" section below.
