NAME

       awesome - awesome window manager

SYNOPSIS

       awesome [-v | --version] [-h | --help] [-c | --config FILE] [-k |
       --check]

DESCRIPTION

       awesome is a window manager for X. It manages windows in different
       layouts, like floating or tiled. Either layout can be applied
       dynamically, optimizing the environment for the application in use and
       the task performed.

       In tiled layout, windows are managed in a master and stacking area. The
       master area contains the windows which currently need most attention,
       whereas the stacking area contains all other windows. In floating
       layout windows can be resized and moved freely. Dialog windows are
       always managed floating, regardless of the layout applied. The spiral
       and dwindle layout are special cases of the tiled layout where the
       stacking area is arranged in a spiral for the former or as a
       rectangular fractal for the later.

       Windows are grouped by tags. Each window can be tagged with one or
       multiple tags. Selecting certain tags displays all windows with these
       tags.

       awesome can contain small wiboxes which can display anything you want:
       all available tags, the layout, the title of the visible windows, a
       text, etc.

BUGS

       Of course there’s no bug in awesome. But there may be unexpected
       behaviors.

       Java applications which use the XToolkit/XAWT backend may draw gray
       windows only. The XToolkit/XAWT backend breaks ICCCM-compliance in
       recent JDK 1.5 and early JDK 1.6 versions because it assumes a
       reparenting window manager. As a workaround you can use JDK 1.4 (which
       doesn’t contain the XToolkit/XAWT backend), or you can set the
       following environment variable (to use the older Motif backend
       instead): AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit
