        icewm-winoptions - IceWM window options configuration file




       The IceWM window options configuration file is used to configure settings for individual
       application windows.  The window options that are established by this file when icewm(1)
       starts can be overridden while running using the icesh(1) or icewmhints(1) utilities.

       Contains settings to control window appearance and behaviour which are specific to
       applications or groups of applications.  Options can control the border, whether it
       appears on the task bar, the window list, the system tray and the work spaces.  Also its
       layer, geometry, whether it can be moved, resized and closed.  Full details for this file
       are explained in the "IceWM Manual".


       Each line in the file must be in one of the following formats:


       Where the fields are defined as follows:

           The resource class portion of the ICCCM WM_CLASS property for the window.

           The resource name portion of the ICCCM WM_CLASS property for the window.

           The resource name portion of the ICCCM WM_WINDOW_ROLE property for the window.

           One of the options and values described below under "OPTIONS".

       Note that it is possible that the WM_WINDOW_ROLE may contain a period (".").  When it
       does, the period should be escaped by a single backslash when specifying the ROLE in the


       The options and values described in the format, above, consist of an option name, OPTION
       followed by a semicolon (":") a space (" ") and an allowable value for the option, VALUE.
       The available options are as follows:

       The following option control general characteristics of windows:

       icon: NAME (default: none)
           Specifies the icon name for the window.  NAME is the name of the icon.

       workspace: WORKSPACE (default: current)
           Specifies the default workspace for the window.  WORKSPACE is the workspace number
           counting from zero (0).

       layer: {Desktop|Below|Normal|OnTop|Dock|AboveDock|Menu|NUMBER} (default: 4)
           Specifies the default layer for the window.  Layer can be one of the following strings
           or a number from zero (0) to fifteen (15):

             Desktop     (0)  Desktop window.
             Below       (2)  Below the default layer.
             Normal      (4)  Default layer for windows.
             OnTop       (6)  Above the default layer.
             Dock        (8)  Docked windows at edge of screen.
             AboveDock  (10)  Windows above the dock.
             Menu       (12)  Windows above the dock.

       geometry geometry (default: WM_SIZE_HINTS)
           The default geometry for the window.  This geometry should be specified in a format
           that can be parsed by XParseGeometry(3):


       tray: {Ignore|Minimized|Exclusive|NUMBER} (default: 0)
           The default tray option for the window.  This affects both the tray and the task pane.
           Tray can be one of the following strings or a number from zero (0) to two (2):

             Ignore     (0)  No icon added to tray.
