NAME

       dwm - dynamic window manager

SYNOPSIS

       dwm [-v]

DESCRIPTION

       dwm  is  a dynamic window manager for X. It manages windows in tiled, monocle and floating
       layouts. Either layout can be applied dynamically,  optimising  the  environment  for  the
       application in use and the task performed.

       In  tiled  layouts  windows  are  managed  in  a master and stacking area. The master area
       contains the window which currently  needs  most  attention,  whereas  the  stacking  area
       contains  all  other  windows.  In  monocle layout all windows are maximised to the screen
       size. In floating layout windows can be resized  and  moved  freely.  Dialog  windows  are
       always managed floating, regardless of the layout applied.

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

       Each screen contains a small status bar which displays all available tags, the layout, the
       title  of the focused window, and the text read from the root window name property, if the
       screen is focused. A floating window is indicated with an empty  square  and  a  maximised
       floating  window is indicated with a filled square before the windows title.  The selected
       tags are indicated with a different color. The tags of the focused  window  are  indicated
       with  a  filled  square in the top left corner.  The tags which are applied to one or more
       windows are indicated with an empty square in the top left corner.

       dwm draws a small border around windows to indicate the focus state.

       keeps it fast, secure and simple.

BUGS

       Java  applications  which  use  the  XToolkit/XAWT backend may draw grey 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. Possible workarounds are using
       JDK 1.4 (which doesn't contain the  XToolkit/XAWT  backend)  or  setting  the  environment
       variable  AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit  (to  use the older Motif backend instead) or running xprop
       -root -f _NET_WM_NAME 32a -set _NET_WM_NAME LG3D or wmname LG3D (to pretend  that  a  non-
       reparenting  window  manager  is  running that the XToolkit/XAWT backend can recognize) or
       when using OpenJDK setting the environment variable _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1.

       GTK 2.10.9+ versions contain a broken Save-As file dialog implementation,  which  requests
       to  reconfigure  its  window  size  in  an  endless  loop.  However,  its  window is still
       respondable during this state, so you can simply  ignore  the  flicker  until  a  new  GTK
       version appears, which will fix this bug, approximately GTK 2.10.12+ versions.
