NAME

     wmanagerrc-update — update your wmanager settings automatically

SYNOPSIS

     wmanagerrc-update

DESCRIPTION

     The wmanagerrc-update 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, wmanagerrc-update simply copies the contents of the
     ~/.wmanagerrc.user file to ~/.wmanagerrc.

     On systems that register the installed X window managers, the wmanagerrc-update 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-alternaties(8) mechanism are supported.  Locally installed window managers and things
     not registered as alternatives for x-window-manager(1) 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 wmanagerrc-update program uses
     the entries first from ~/.wmanagerrc.user, then from the the registered window managers, in
     the order of update-alternatives(8) priorities.  You can override this by listing entries in
     wanted order in ~/.wmanagerrc.order, separated by whitespace.

BUGS

     Concurrent wmanagerrc-update processes may clobber the .wmanagerrc file.
