wmanagerrc-update(1) update your wmanager settings automatically



The program creates or updates the ~/.wmanagerrc file with a list of X11 window managers currently installed on the system. On systems that do not have a convention for registering X window managers, simply copies the contents of the ~/.wmanagerrc.user file to ~/.wmanagerrc

On systems that register the installed X window managers, the program adds all of them to the wmanager(1) configuration so that they are available soon after installation. Currently, only Debian GNU/Linux and similar systems that use the update-alternaties8 mechanism are supported. Locally installed window managers and things not registered as alternatives for x-window-manager1 can be added to the file ~/.wmanagerrc.user in the .wmanagerrc format; see the wmanager(1) README file, usually /usr/share/doc/wmanager/README.gz for more information. The program uses the entries first from ~/.wmanagerrc.user then from the the registered window managers, in the order of update-alternatives8 priorities. You can override this by listing entries in wanted order in ~/.wmanagerrc.order separated by whitespace.


Concurrent processes may clobber the .wmanagerrc file.
