       sapphire — minimal but configurable window manager


       sapphire [-display displayname  | -version ]


       This manual page documents briefly the sapphire command.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original
       program does not have a manual page.

       sapphire is a minimal but configurable window manager for X11R6. It supports themes in the
       form of X resource files, and has a customisable menu.

       The  Debian  version  receives  Debian menu entries automatically in a "Debian" submenu by
       default, you can add entries specifically to sapphire (in the rest of  the  menu)  in  the
       default-menu file. For more information, see update-menus (1) and the FILES section below.

       Users can also set their own options in $HOME/.sapphire/wmconf (an X resource file).


       -display displayname
                 Use the X-server display 'displayname'.

       -version  Show version of program.


                 menu entries specific to sapphire (you can edit this one, it's a conffile)

                 Debian  menu  entries in sapphire's format, not read directly, do not edit (edit
                 default-menu            instead)

                 this menu file is the one sapphire actually reads, it is automatically generated
                 from the other two by update-menus, do not edit (edit default-menu instead)

                 user-specific options

                 themes  directory,  all  of  the  above may refer to themes from here (the files
                 themselves are X resource files)


       Sapphire was originally developed from Decklin Foster's aewm, and also uses some code from
       Blackbox (for gradients).
