wmiibar(1) window manager improved 2 bar


wmiibar -s socketfile



wmiibar is a generic and highly customizable bar for the X Window System, originally designed for wmii(1). It supports arbitrary sized labels with arbitrary styles on a per label basis and with button click events. Like wmii, wmiibar also implements a socket-based fileserver, which is accessed to configure and interoperate with other components.


-s socketfile
specifies the socketfile that wmiibar should create.
prints version information to stderr, then exits.


wmiibar is customized through manipulating its filesystem namespace. In the default setup of wmii(1) the namespace of wmiibar can be found in /bar.
