wmiiwm(1) window manager improved 2


wmiiwm [-c] -s socketfile



wmiiwm is the actual window manager of the wmii project. To get the whole picture, please have a look at wmii(1). wmiiwm implements a socket-based fileserver, which is accessed to configure and interoperate with other components.


checks wether another window manager is already running, in which case it prints an error message and exits with a non-zero status (otherwise it just returns with a zero status).
-s socketfile
specifies the socketfile that wmiiwm should create.
prints version information to stderr, then exits.


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