       olwm - OPEN LOOK window manager for OpenWindows


       olwm [ options ]


       olwm  is a window manager for the X Window System that implements parts
       of the OPEN LOOK graphical user interface.  It is the  standard  window
       manager  for  Sun's OpenWindows product, but it will work properly with
       any X11 system.


       Most command-line options have counterparts in the  resource  database.
       A  command-line  option  will  override  any  setting from the resource

       -2d    Use two-dimensional look.  This is the  default  for  monochrome

       -3d    Use  three-dimensional  look.   This  is  the  default for color
              systems.  This option is ignored for monochrome systems.

       -bd,  -bordercolor
              Specifies  the  border  color.   See  the  description  of   the
              BorderColor resource.

       -bg,  -background
              Specifies  the  background  color.   See  the description of the
              Background resource.

       -c,  -click
              Use click-to-focus mode.  This is the default focus mode.

       -depth depth
              Specifies the depth of the visual in which olwm is to run.   See
              the discussion in the Screen Resources section.

       -display display-string
              Specify  the  name  of  the  display  to  manage.  Overrides the
              DISPLAY environment variable, if any.  In addition, the  display
              string  is  exported  to olwm's environment, so processes forked
              from olwm will inherit this value.

       -f,  -follow
              Use focus-follows-mouse mode.  Default mode is click-to-focus.

       -fn font-name,  -font  font-name
              Set the font for window titles.

       -fg,  -foreground
              Specifies the foreground color.   See  the  description  of  the
              ForegroundColor resource.

       -multi Manage  windows on all screens that a display supports.  This is
              the default.

       -name resource-name
              Use resource-name to look up resources in the resource database.

       -xrm resource-string
              Specify resources on the command-line.  Resources specified here
              will override resources found in resource files.

              Manage  windows  for  a  single  screen  only, using the default
              screen for the specified display.  Overrides the -multi option.

       -syncpid process-id
              When olwm has completed  its  initialization,  it  will  send  a
              signal  (SIGALRM  by default) to process-id.  The signal will be
              sent only if this option is present.  This is useful for running
              olwm  from  shell  scripts (such as .xinitrc) in such a way that
              the script waits for olwm to finish  its  initialization,  while
              leaving  olwm  as a child process of the shell script.  This can
              be done using the following sh(1) construct:

                   sleep 15 & pid=$!
                   olwm -syncpid $pid &
                   wait $pid

       -syncsignal signal
              Specifies the signal to send instead of SIGALRM.  The signal  is
              specified as a number, not symbolically.

       -visual visual-class
              Specifies  the class of the visual in which olwm is to run.  See
              the discussion in the Screen Resources section.


       The following  options  are  strictly  for  debugging.   They  are  not
       recommended  for  general use.  Don't use them unless you know what you
       are doing.

       -all   Print a message for every event received.

       -debug Equivalent to turning on all debugging options.

              Print orphaned events.  Orphaned  events  are  events  that  are
              associated with a window or frame that has no entry in the frame
              hash table, or events that are not handled by the various  event

              Run the window manager in synchronous mode.


       -basiclocale locale-name
              Specify  the  basic  OPEN  LOOK  locale  category setting.  This
              category will be the base for other locale categories, therefore
              there   are   certain   restrictions  applied  to  other  locale
              categories (see the following locale handling sections).

       -displaylang locale-name
              Specify the display language OPEN LOOK  locale  category.   This
              category affects the contents of workspace menu, window menu and
              notice messages.

       -numeric locale-name
              Specify the numeric format  OPEN  LOOK  locale  category.   This
              category  affects  the  numeric  format displayed in any message
              that contains numerics.


       Locale is the language and cultural conventions used  in  the  program.
       Locale  will  control  the  language-dependent part of olwm's behavior.
       The OPEN LOOK international extensions have defined several  OPEN  LOOK
       locale categories as follows:

       Basic Locale
              This is the basic setting for the entire locale mechanism.  This
              category specifies internal character handling behavior.

       Display Language
              This category specifies the language used for displaying  menus,
              notice messages and error messages.

       Input Language
              This  category specifies the language used for text input.  This
              category has no affect on olwm, because it does not accept  text
              input from the keyboard.

       Date Format
              This  category  specifies  the  format  of  date and time.  This
              category has no affect on olwm, because it does not display  any
              date and time information.

       Numeric Format
              This category specifies the format of displayed numeric data.

       Since  the Basic Locale setting defines the character handling of olwm,
       certain restrictions have been placed on combining the locale  category

       1. If  basic  setting  is  set to other than "C" locale, then all other
          locale categories must be the same as basic setting or "C".

       2. If basic setting is  set  to  "C"  locale,  then  all  other  locale
          categories must be in "C" locale.

       The  following  methods  are  available  to  inform  olwm,  the  locale
       settings, and they are listed in order of priority:

       1. Command line options (such as -basiclocale).

       2. by resource database.

       3. setlocale(3)  function  defaults  (for  example:  LANG   environment

       If  command  line options are not used to specify locale settings, olwm
       will pick up the new  locale  settings  from  workspace  property  (per
       changes  to  the  resource  database);  and  change the locale settings
       dynamically (for example, to  change  the  language  of  workspace  and
       window menus).  All pinned workspace menus will be unpinned during this
       locale switching operation.


       The input focus

       is the window that will receive keystrokes.   olwm  has  two  different
       input  focus  modes, which are different ways of transferring the input
       focus from one window to another.  By  default,  olwm  uses  "click-to-
       focus"  (also known as "click-to-type") mode.  This means that you must
       click on the window in order to get the focus to it.   While  a  window
       has  the  input  focus,  the  mouse  can be anywhere on the screen; the
       keyboard events will still go to that window.  You can  set  the  input
       focus  to  a  window and simultaneously raise it to the top by clicking
       the left mouse button in the window's title bar or border.

       olwm has another focus  mode  called  "focus-follows-mouse."   In  this
       mode,  whatever  window the mouse is pointing to will receive the input
       focus.  To switch the input focus  from  one  window  to  another,  you
       simply  move  the mouse to the other window; you don't have to click at
       all.  Note, however, that to transfer the focus amongst subwindows of a
       single  top-level  window, you must click in the subwindow, or you must
       use focus transfer function keys (if available from the application).

       The input focus mode can be controlled with command-line options or  by
       entries  in  the  resource  database.   Neither focus mode has inherent
       advantages.  Which one you choose is a matter of personal preference.


       OPEN LOOK defines three mouse button  functions:  SELECT,  ADJUST,  and
       MENU.   These  functions  are  mapped  to  mouse  buttons  1, 2, and 3,
       respectively.  On  systems  with  only  two  mouse  buttons,  the  MENU
       function  can  be  obtained by pressing buttons 1 and 2 simultaneously.
       This technique is referred to as  mouse  button  chording.   The  exact
       behavior of each of these functions depends on what object is under the


       Window Title Bar and Borders.

       Clicking SELECT selects the window, raises it above other windows,  and
       deselects  any  other  objects.  In click-focus mode, the focus is also
       transferred to this window.   Pressing  and  holding  SELECT  and  then
       dragging  the  mouse  will move windows without raising them or setting
       the focus.  If this window is  selected,  it  and  all  other  selected
       windows  are  moved  simultaneously.   Otherwise,  just  this window is
       moved, and it is not selected.  If you hold down the Control key  while
       you are moving a window, motion is constrained to be either vertical or
       horizontal, depending on whether you've moved farther in a vertical  or
       horizontal direction.  Double-clicking SELECT on the window is the same
       as selecting the Full Size  (or  Restore  Size)  menu  item.   Clicking
       ADJUST will toggle the selected state of this window.  If other windows
       or icons are already selected, they remain selected.  ADJUST is  useful
       for  selecting  several windows and icons.  Pressing MENU will bring up
       the window menu.  See the Window Menu section for further details.   If
       the  Alt key is held down, the mouse button functions become accessible
       anywhere over the window, not just over the title bar and borders.  The
       modifier  used  can  be  changed;  see  the  description  of the WMGrab
       resource in the section on Modifier Customization.

       Resize Corners.

       You can resize a window by pressing the left mouse button over  any  of
       the  resize corners and dragging it to the new location.  Releasing the
       mouse button will set the new size of the window.  If you hold down the
       Control  key while you are dragging, the resize operation is contrained
       to resize vertically or horizontally, depending on whether you've moved
       the mouse farther in the horizontal or vertical direction.

       Window Button.

       The  Window  Button  is the small box with a downward-pointing triangle
       near the left end of the title bar.   Pressing  MENU  over  the  window
       button  will  bring  up the Window Menu.  Clicking SELECT over the left
       mouse button on the  Window  Button  will  execute  the  window  menu's
       default  action.  This will usually close the window into an icon.  You
       can change the window menu's default action by holding down the Control
       key while manipulating the window menu.


       OPEN LOOK pop-up windows have a pushpin instead of a window button.  If
       the pushpin is out of its hole, pressing a command  button  within  the
       window  will  cause the window to be taken down ("dismissed") after the
       command is executed.  If you click SELECT on the pushpin, it will  move
       into  its  hole.  In this state, pressing a command button will execute
       the command without dismissing the window.  Clicking  SELECT  over  the
       pin will pull it out of the hold.  This will dismiss the window without
       executing any commands.  Some windows come up with the pin  already  in
       the hole.


       An  icon represents a closed window.  You can still do most of the same
       operations as with an open window.  Moving  and  selecting  icons  with
       SELECT  and  ADJUST is exactly the same as for open windows.  A similar
       version of the Window Menu is available on an icon  by  pressing  MENU.
       Double-clicking SELECT will open the icon.  Icons cannot be resized.


       The  X11  Non-Rectangular  Window Shape Extension (commonly referred to
       simply as the Shape extension) allows windows to have arbitrary shapes.
       Olwm will handle these windows by giving them no decoration whatsoever.
       Shaped windows can be manipulated by using the WMGrab modifier (Alt  by
       default)  with  the  mouse  buttons.   (See  the  section  on  Modifier
       Customization for further  details.)   Shaped  windows  can  be  moved,
       resized,  closed,  opened,  etc.  like ordinary windows.  The selection
       feedback for shaped windows is the presence of resize corners  floating
       at the corners of the bounding rectangle of the window's shape.


       You can select a group of windows and icons by using the left or middle
       mouse buttons over the Workspace (the area of the screen outside of all
       windows  and  icons,  commonly  known  as the "root window").  Pressing
       either SELECT or ADJUST and dragging the mouse will  define  a  rubber-
       band  rectangle.  When you release the mouse button, the set of windows
       and icons enclosed by this rectangle  will  be  operated  on.   If  you
       created  the  rectangle using SELECT, the windows and icons within will
       be selected, and all other objects will be  deselected.   If  you  used
       ADJUST,  the objects within will have their selected state toggled, and
       any other windows and icons already selected will remain selected.


       Pressing MENU over the workspace brings up the  Workspace  Menu.   This
       menu  is customizable, but it typically contains at least the following
       items.  (The items may appear in a different language depending on  the
       current locale setting.)

              This   button   has   a  sub-menu  that  allows  you  to  invoke
              applications.  The default Programs sub-menu contains all of the
              programs  in  the OpenWindows DeskSet.  However, users typically
              customize this menu to contain many more programs and to contain
              nested  submenus.   See  the  section  on Menu Customization for
              further information.

              This  button  has  a  sub-menu  that  contains  several  utility
              functions  for  the  workspace, including Refresh (redisplay all
              windows on the screen), Lock Screen, and Save Workspace.

              This item brings  up  the  Workspace  Properties  window,  which
              allows  you  to  view  and customize settings of the OpenWindows

              Brings up the table of contents of the Help Handbooks.

       Desktop Intro...
              Brings up a tutorial introduction to the Sun Desktop.

       Exit   Shuts down all applications and  exits  the  window  system.   A
              confirmation  notice  is popped up first to give you a chance to
              cancel the operation.


       The window menu of most windows has the following  items.   (The  items
       may  appear  in  a  different  language depending on the current locale

       Close  Close the window to an icon.  Any OPEN LOOK pop-up  windows  are
              closed into this icon as well.  They will reappear when the icon
              is opened.  This item is "Open" if you bring up the menu  on  an

       Full Size
              Expand the window to the full height of the screen.  If this has
              already done, the button is Normal Size instead  of  Full  Size.
              Normal  Size  restores  the window to the size it was before you
              did the Full Size operation.  If the application has specified a
              maximum  size  for  the  window, this size is used for Full Size
              instead of the full screen height.

       Move   Starts the keyboard-based form of moving  the  window.   Appears
              only if OPEN LOOK Mouseless Mode is enabled.

       Resize Starts  the keyboard-based form of resizing the window.  Appears
              only if OPEN LOOK Mouseless Mode is enabled.

       Back   Move the window behind all other windows.

              Clear and redisplay the window.

       Quit   Kill the program running in the window and  remove  the  window.
              If   the   application   has   elected  to  participate  in  the
              WM_DELETE_WINDOW  protocol,  olwm   sends   a   WM_DELETE_WINDOW
              ClientMessage instead of killing that window.

       OPEN  LOOK  pop-up  windows (as opposed to base windows) have a smaller
       window menu.  It lacks the Close, Full Size, and Quit items, but it has
       two new items:

              Causes  the  window  to be dismissed.  This button has a submenu
              with two items: This Window, which dismisses just  this  window,
              and  All  Pop-ups,  which  dismisses all pop-up windows owned by
              this application.

       Owner? Raises and flashes the title bar of the base window that  "owns"
              this pop-up window.


       You  can  customize olwm's Workspace Menu by putting a menu description
       into a file that olwm will read.  When it starts up,  olwm  will  first
       look  for  a  file named by the OLWMMENU environment variable.  If this
       variable does not exist, or if the file is not readable, olwm will then
       look in the file named ".openwin-menu" in your home directory.  If this
       file is not present or is unreadable, olwm will fall back on the system
       default  menu  file.  If, for some reason, the system default menu file
       cannot be found, olwm will use a minimal, built-in menu.  The menu file
       that  is  read  can  also  be  modified  by the display language locale
       setting.  The locale name is used as a suffix for the filename.   If  a
       localized  menu  file  is  found,  it is used in preference to the non-
       localized menu file.  For example, if the  display  language  local  is
       "japanese", the file ".openwin-menu.japanese" will take precedence over
       the file ".openwin-menu".

       Olwm will automatically re-read its menu file whenever  the  menu  file
       changes.   This lets you make many small changes to a menu file, trying
       out the modified menu after each change.  The automatic re-reading  can
       be controlled with the AutoReReadMenuFile resource.

       If  olwm encounters a syntax error during the reading of any menu file,
       a message is printed to the standard error, and  the  reading  of  this
       menu file is considered to have failed.  Olwm will then attempt to read
       the next file in the sequence as described above.


       The menu specification language has a number of keywords, all of  which
       are  in  all  upper case letters.  The keywords are not translated into
       the language specified by the the locale category  settings.   Keywords
       are always in English.

       Each  line typically specifies one menu button.  There are three fields
       on each line: a label, the optional keyword "DEFAULT", and  a  command.
       The  label  is  either  a  single  word  or a string enclosed in double
       quotes.  This is the label that appears in the  menu  button.   If  the
       optional  keyword  "DEFAULT"  appears  next, this menu item becomes the
       default item for this menu.  The rest of the  line  (excluding  leading
       whitespace)  is  considered to be a command.  It is executed by sending
       it to sh(1).  Any shell metacharacters will be passed  through  to  the
       shell  unchanged.   A line containing only the keyword "SEPARATOR" will
       add extra space before the next item.

       A sub-menu is specified using the special keyword "MENU" in place of  a
       command.   A  button  is  added  to  the  current menu, and clicking or
       pulling right on this button will bring up  the  sub-menu.   Subsequent
       lines  in  the  menu file define buttons for the sub-menu, until a line
       that has the special keyword "END" in the command field is encountered.
       The  label  of  the  MENU  line  must  match the label on the END line,
       otherwise an error is signaled.  Sub-menus can be  nested  arbitrarily,
       bracketed  by  MENU and END lines with matching labels.  To make a sub-
       menu pinnable, add the special keyword "PIN" after the END  keyword  on
       the line that ends the sub-menu definition.

       A sub-menu can be specified in a different file by putting the pathname
       of the file after the MENU keyword.  In this case, the file so named is
       assumed  to contain lines that specify menu buttons.  The sub-menu file
       need not have any MENU or END lines (unless it has  sub-menus  itself).
       The  current  file need not have a matching END line if the sub-menu is
       read from another file.

       By default, the label in a menu button is used  as  the  title  of  the
       submenu.   This  can  be  overridden  by specifying a line that has the
       special keyword TITLE in the command field.  The label from  this  line
       will be used as the sub-menu's title.  This line can appear anywhere in
       the sub-menu definition.  It does not add an item to the menu.

       The following keywords can be used in the command field of a menu item.
       They  specify functions that are internal to olwm, that are not invoked
       by running a shell.

              Open up a connection to NeWS using psh(1) and send the  rest  of
              the line to it.

              Bring up Workspace Properties.

              Refresh causes all windows on the screen to be repainted.

              Force an immediate rereading of the workspace menu customization
              file.  Olwm will start a complete search for  a  menu  file  (as
              described  in  the Menu Customization section) and use the first
              valid file it finds.

              Restart the window manager by issuing an exec(2) on argv.   This
              shouldn't  affect  any running applications, nor should it cause
              the server to shut down.

              Take a snapshot of the set of  currently  running  applications,
              and  put  the command lines so obtained into the file ".openwin-
              init" in the user's home directory.  This runs the command
              "owplaces -silent -multi -script -output $HOME/.openwin-init".

       WMEXIT Exit the window manager without killing any applications.

       Olwm will handle colormap installation for windows that have  colormaps
       other  than  the default colormap.  There are two colormap focus modes:
       "color-follows-mouse" and "color-locked".  They are  roughly  analogous
       to  the  corresponding  modes for input focus.  However, colormap focus
       mode can be completely independent of input focus.  The mode  in  which
       the  system  starts  up  is determined by the ColorFocusLocked resource
       (see the Resources section below).

       Olwm keeps track of a set of windows that are eligible  to  have  their
       colormaps  installed.   This  set  includes  all  top-level  windows of
       clients.   If  any  clients  have  specified   other   windows   in   a
       WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS  property, these windows are included in the set as

       In color-follows-mouse mode, olwm keeps track of the  location  of  the
       pointer  and always keeps installed the colormap of the eligible window
       underneath the pointer.  Thus,  you  can  install  the  colormap  of  a
       particular  window  simply by sliding the pointer into it.  The default
       colormap will be restored if you move  the  pointer  back  out  into  a
       window   frame   or   into   the   workspace.    In   this   mode,  the
       WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS properties are tracked for  changes,  but  only  to
       change  the  set of eligible windows.  Changes to these properties only
       cause colormaps to be  installed  if  the  eligible  window  under  the
       pointer  has  changed  as  a  result  of  the  set  of eligible windows
       changing.  In this mode, no window is considered to have  the  colormap
       focus; colormap installation entirely is under control of the user.

       In  color-locked  mode,  colormaps  are  not installed based on pointer
       motion.  Instead,  a  particular  window  is  considered  to  have  the
       colormap  focus.   When a window has the colormap focus, colormaps will
       not be installed and uninstalled based on pointer motion.  If a  client
       program changes the contents of the WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS property on the
       top-level  window  with  the  colormap  focus,  olwm  will  respond  by
       installing the colormap of the first window named in this property.  In
       this way, the application whose  window  has  the  colormap  focus  can
       control   colormap   installation  by  altering  the  contents  of  the
       WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS property.

       Note that, according to the  ICCCM,  if  WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS  does  not
       include the top-level window, it is assumed to occur first in the list.
       If you want your program to request colormap installation  via  changes
       to  WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS,  you  must make sure that the top-level window
       appears somewhere  in  this  property.   Otherwise,  olwm  will  always
       install the colormap of the top-level window.

       The  colormap  focus  may  be given to a window in one of several ways.
       The user can assign the colormap focus to  a  window  by  pressing  the
       Color-Lock   key  while  the  pointer  is  over  the  window.   If  the
       AutoColorFocus resource is set, new windows will be given the  colormap
       focus automatically.  If the ColorTracksInputFocus resource is set, the
       colormap focus will always be given to the window that  has  the  input

       In  addition to setting the colormap focus, the Color-Lock key has some
       additional effects.  When you press the Color-Lock key, if the  pointer
       is  within  a subwindow named in the WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS property, that
       subwindow's colormap will be installed.  If the pointer isn't within  a
       window  named in the WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS property, or if the pointer is
       over the window title bar or border, the colormap of the first entry of
       the  WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS  property  will be installed.  You can use the
       Color-Lock key to install the colormap of  a  particular  subwindow  no
       matter  where  it resides in the WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS list.  If there is
       no WM_COLORMAP_WINDOWS  property,  pressing  the  Color-Lock  key  will
       simply install the colormap of the top-level window.

       If  you  press  the  Color-Lock  key  over  the  workspace, the default
       colormap will be installed, and any window with the colormap focus will
       lose it.  The root window will have the colormap focus.

       At any time, you can revert to color-follows-mouse mode by pressing the
       Color-Unlock key.  Any window with the colormap focus will lose it.


       Olwm provides spot help for frames, icons,  the  Workspace  and  Window
       menus,  window  buttons,  resize  corners,  pushpins, and the Workspace
       itself.  This is done via a separate slave program, olwmslave(1).   The
       slave program is forked automatically when olwm starts up.  The forking
       of the slave program can be controlled by the RunSlaveProcess resource.


       By default, olwm will manage windows on  all  screens  of  the  display
       server.  Most operations are unchanged from single screen operation.  A
       window exists on a particular screen  for  its  entire  lifetime.   The
       window  cannot  be  moved  from  one  screen  to another, nor can it be
       resized to cross a screen boundary.  Windows invoked from the Workspace
       menu will appear on the same screen as the menu.  Spot help will appear
       on the same screen as the pointer when the Help key is pressed.

       Previous releases required modifications to the user's .xinitrc  script
       to  start  multiple  instances  of  olwm,  one  for each screen.  These
       modifications are no longer  necessary.   The  default  Xinitrc  (which
       contains  a  single  invocation  of  olwm)  works  for  both single and
       multiple screen situations.


       Global resources in olwm consist of two resource components.  The first
       component  in  the  resource  name  is taken from the trailing pathname
       component of argv[0].  This value is typically `olwm'.  This  name  can
       be  altered  by  using  the  -name  command-line  argument.  The second
       resource component names the global attribute being set.  It should  be
       one   of  the  names  from  the  following  list.   Thus,  to  set  the
       AutoColorFocus attribute, one would use  "olwm.AutoColorFocus"  as  the
       resource specification.

       Some resources are also interpreted by XView (see XView(7)) and are set
       by  the  Workspace  Properties  program  (see  props(1)).   For   these
       resources,  olwm will also accept the string `OpenWindows' as the first
       resource component.  These resources are marked with an asterisk `*'.

       Colors  can  be  specified  using  the  formats  parsed  by  the   Xlib
       XParseColor()   function.    Common   formats   are  color  names  (see
       showrgb(1)) and explicit red, green, and blue  values  in  hexadecimal,
       preceded  by  a  `#'.  For example, a bright magenta would be specified
       with "#ff00ff".

       Boolean values can be specified with the words "true",  "false",  "on",
       "off", "yes", "no", "1", "0", "t", and "nil".

       AutoColorFocus (boolean)
              Indicates  whether  newly  appearing windows are to be given the
              colormap focus  automatically.   See  the  section  on  Colormap
              Installation for further details.  Default value: false.

       AutoInputFocus (boolean)
              Indicates  whether  newly  appearing windows are to be given the
              input focus automatically.  Default value: false.

       AutoRaise (boolean)
              Raise windows automatically when they receive the  focus.   This
              is  useful in click-to-focus if you always like to type into the
              topmost window.  This is useful in focus-follow-mouse  when  the
              AutoRaiseDelay  resource  is set to a reasonable value.  Default
              value: false.

       AutoRaiseDelay (integer)
              Amount of time to  delay,  in  microseconds,  between  a  window
              receiving   the  focus  and  raising  it  above  other  windows.
              Effective only when the value of the AutoRaise resource is true.
              Default value: 0.

       AutoReReadMenuFile (boolean)
              Specifies  whether  the  menu  file is to be re-read whenever it
              changes.  Default value: true.

       Background (color)
              Specifies the background color.  This is used for the background
              of  masked  icons.   Note: it is not used for the backgrounds of
              icon windows such as those used by XView (see  XView(7)).   This
              resource   is  also  distinct  from  the  WindowColor  resource.
              Default value: white.

       BasicLocale (locale name)
              Specifies the basic OPEN LOOK locale category setting.  See  the
              section on Locale Handling for more details.

       Beep (enumeration) *
              Specifies  the  circumstances  under  which  olwm  should  beep.
              Permissible  values  are  the  strings  "always",  "never",  and
              "notices".   The  string  "never"  means  that olwm should never
              beep, "notices" means that olwm should beep only when  a  notice
              appears,  and  "always" means that olwm will beep whenever it is
              appropriate.  Default value: always.

       BorderColor (color)
              Specifies the color used for window and icon  borders.   Default
              value: black.

       ButtonFont (font name)
              Font  to  be  used  for  buttons  in menus and notices.  Default
              value: Lucida-Sans.

       ClickMoveThreshold (integer)
              This value is used when bringing up a menu.  If the mouse  moves
              more than this amount while the menu button is down, the menu is
              considered to be in  press-drag-release  mode.   Otherwise,  the
              menu is in click-move-click mode.  Default value: 5.

       ColorTracksInputFocus (boolean)
              If  true,  indicates  that  the  colormap  focus  is  to  be set
              automatically to any window that receives the input focus.   See
              the  section  on  Colormap  Installation  for  further  details.
              Default value: false.

       ColorFocusLocked (boolean)
              Specifies the initial state of the colormap  focus  policy.   If
              true,  the  default  colormap  is  locked into the hardware.  If
              false, the colormap of  the  window  under  the  mouse  is  kept
              installed.  See the section on Colormap Installation for further
              details.  Default value: false.

       CursorFont (font name)
              Specifies the font to be used for cursors.  It is  probably  not
              useful  to  change this unless you have an alternate cursor font
              with the same encoding as the OPEN LOOK  cursor  font.   Default
              value: -sun-open look cursor-*-*-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*.

       DefaultIconImage (filename)
              Specifies  a  file containing a bitmap to be used as the default
              icon image.

       DefaultIconMask (filename)
              Specifies a file containing a bitmap to be used as  the  default
              icon mask.

       DefaultTitle (string)
              Specifies the string to be used in the title bar of windows that
              have not provided a string in  the  WM_NAME  property.   Default
              value: No Name.

       DisplayLang (locale name)
              Specifies  the  display language OPEN LOOK locale category.  See
              the section on Locale Handling for more details.

       DragRightDistance (integer) *
              The number of pixels you must drag the mouse to the right  in  a
              menu  item  to  bring up a submenu.  The submenu always comes up
              when you move over the menu mark (the right-pointing  triangle),
              regardless of the drag-right distance.  Default value: 100.

       DragThreshold (integer) *
              This  is  the number of pixels the mouse must move while a mouse
              button is down in order to have the action be considered a drag.
              If  the  mouse  moves fewer than this number of pixels while the
              button is down, it is considered to be click instead of a  drag.
              Default value: 5.

       DragWindow (boolean)
              If  true, drags the entire image of the window when you move it.
              Otherwise, just drags the window outline.  Default value: false.

       EdgeMoveThreshold (integer)
              Specifies  the  amount  of  "hysteresis"  provided  when  moving
              windows  past the edge of the screen.  When you move a window or
              an icon, it will pause when it touches the edge of  the  screen.
              This is to allow you to easily position windows right up against
              the edge of the screen.  If you move farther, the window or icon
              will  continue  to  move past the edge.  You can prevent windows
              from ever lapping off the screen by setting an  extremely  large
              value  (say,  10000) for this resource, and you can disable this
              feature entirely by specifying a value of zero.  Default  value:

       FlashCount (integer)
              Number of times the title bar is flashed when the "Owners?" menu
              item is activated.  Default value: 6.

       FlashTime (integer)
              Amount of time, in microseconds, for  which  the  title  bar  is
              flashed  when  the  "Owner?"  menu  item  is activated.  Default
              value: 100000.

       FocusLenience (boolean)
              If this is  set  to  true,  olwm  will  not  enforce  the  ICCCM
              requirement  that  windows must have the input hint set in order
              to receive the input focus.  This option is useful  if  you  run
              clients  that  aren't  ICCCM-compliant,  like  many  X11R3-based
              clients.  Default value: false.

       Foreground (color)
              Specifies the foreground color.  This color is used  mainly  for
              the text of window and icon titles and in menus.  Default value:

       GlyphFont (font name)
              Glyph font used for drawing OPEN LOOK graphics.   Changing  this
              font  is  mainly  useful  for  changing  its size.  Specifying a
              different font, such as a text font, will result in  undesirable
              behavior.        Default       value:       -sun-open       look

       IconFlashCount (integer)
              Number of times to flash the open/close "zoom"  lines.   Default
              value: 3.

       IconFlashOffTime (integer)
              Amount  of  time  to pause while open/close "zoom" lines are not
              visible.  Default value: 1.

       IconFlashOnTime (integer)
              Amount of time  to  pause  while  open/close  "zoom"  lines  are
              visible.  Default value: 20000.

       IconFont (font name)
              Font used for icon names.  Default: Lucida-Sans.

       IconLocation (enumeration) *
              One  of  the words "top-lr", "top-rl", "bottom-lr", "bottom-rl",
              "left-tb", "left-bt", "right-tb", or "right-bt".  These  specify
              that  icons  should  be  arranged along a particular edge of the
              screen,  ordered  from  left  to  right  or  top  to  bottom  as
              appropriate.  The words "top", "bottom", "left", and "right" are
              synonyms for "top-lr", "bottom-lr", "left-tb",  and  "right-tb",
              respectively.  Default value: top.

       InvertFocusHighlighting (boolean)
              In  click-to-focus,  the  input focus is normally indicated by a
              solid rectangle in the title bar.  In focus-follows-mouse, focus
              is  normally indicated with two lines in the title bar.  If this
              resource is true, the style of  highlighting  is  inverted  with
              respect  to  the  focus  style.   This  results in two lines for
              click-to-focus and a solid bar for focus-follows-mouse.  Default
              value: false.

       KeepTransientsAbove (boolean)
              Specifies  whether olwm should attempt to keep transient windows
              above their owner window.  Default value: true.

       KeyboardCommands (enumeration) *
              Permissible values for this resource are  SunView1,  Basic,  and
              Full.   Values  are case-sensitive.  In Full mode, all OPEN LOOK
              Mouseless commands implemented by the window manager are active.
              See  the  section  on  Key  Binding for further information.  In
              Basic mode, the keys active  are  Open,  Front,  Help,  and  the
              colormap  keys.  In SunView1 mode, the only keys active are Open
              and Front.  Default value: Basic.

       MinimalDecor (list of strings)
              Specifies a list of windows that are to be decorated  minimally.
              Decoration  on  such  windows  includes  only  a thin border and
              resize corners, with no title bar or window button.   The  value
              should  be  a whitespace-separated list of strings.  Each string
              should specify an applications class or instance name, as passed
              in  the  WM_CLASS property.  Most applications set this property
              based on  the  name  of  the  executable  (i.e.  argv[0]).   For
              example,  to specify that the clock and the calculator should be
              decorated minimally, you would use the following resource:

                   olwm.MinimalDecor: calctool clock

              Many applications will allow you to override the  value  of  the
              WM_CLASS  property  using  the -name option on the command line.
              Default value: (null).

       MouseChordTimeout (integer)
              Specifies the amount of time, in milliseconds, that olwm  is  to
              wait  for subsequent events to disambiguate chorded mouse button
              event sequences.

       MultiClickTimeout (integer) *
              The time, in tenths of a second, that differentiates  a  double-
              click from two single clicks.  Default value: 5.

       Numeric (locale name)
              Specifies the numeric format OPEN LOOK locale category.  See the
              section on Locale Handling for more details.

       PaintWorkspace (boolean)
              If true, olwm will use the WorkspaceColor resource  to  set  the
              workspace  (root  window) background color.  If false, olwm will
              not change the root window background.  This is  useful  If  you
              prefer  to  set  your own workspace color using xsetroot(1) or a
              similar program.  Default value: true.

       PPositionCompat (boolean)
              Turns on backward compatibility for older applications that have
              a   habit   of   always   setting  the  PPosition  flag  in  the
              WM_NORMAL_HINTS property, even when they haven't set a position.
              This  most  often  occurs  with  X11R3-based  clients.   Without
              backward compatibility, these windows will always appear in  the
              upper-left  corner  of the screen.  With backward compatibility,
              these windows will be positioned according to the  default  OPEN
              LOOK  window placement policy, along the diagonal of the screen.
              This option  will  not  affect  windows  that  have  a  geometry
              specified on the command line.  Default value: false.

       PopupJumpCursor (boolean) *
              Specifies  whether to warp the cursor to popup windows.  Default
              value: true.

       RaiseOnActivate (boolean)
              Specifies whether a window is to be raised when it is  activated
              via a Mouseless command.  Default value: true.

       RefreshRecursively (boolean)
              Determines  how  the  Refresh  menu  items  on  the  window  and
              workspace menus operate.  If the value is true, olwm  will  walk
              the  window  hierarchy and send exposure events to every window.
              This is useful for refreshing windows that have  backing  store.
              If the value is false, olwm will map a window and then unmap it,
              causing all windows underneath that do not  have  backing  store
              get  get  exposures.   When  this  feature  is  on,  the Refresh
              operation generates a large amount of client-server traffic.  It
              may  be  useful  to  turn  this  feature  off  if the connection
              transport has low bandwidth or  long  latency.   Default  value:

       ReverseVideo (boolean)
              If  true,  reverses  the  sense of black and white on monochrome
              screens.  Ignored for color screens.  Default value: false.

       RubberBandThickness (integer)
              Specifies the thickness of the "rubber-band" line that is  drawn
              when a window is resized, when a group of windows is selected by
              dragging a rectangle on the root, and when a window is moved and
              the value of the DragWindow resource is false.

       RunSlaveProcess (boolean)
              If  false, disables the running of olwmslave(1) at startup time.
              If the slave process is not  running,  Spot  Help  will  not  be
              available  on  objects owned by olwm such as pushpins and resize
              corners.  Default value: true.

       SaveWorkspaceTimeout (integer)
              Number of seconds to wait while the Save Workspace operation  is
              in  progress.   If  all applications haven't responded with this
              amount of time, the operation  is  considered  to  have  failed.
              Default value: 30.

       SelectDisplaysMenu (boolean) *
              If  true,  pressing the SELECT mouse button will bring up a menu
              item's submenu (if  any)  instead  of  executing  the  submenu's
              default action.  Default value: false.

       SelectionFuzz (integer)
              Number  of pixels of "fuzz" to be applied when selecting windows
              and icons by dragging a rectangle on the workspace.  Consider an
              object that lies almost entirely within the selection rectangle,
              but that laps outside the rectangle by a few pixels.  The object
              will  be  considered  to be within the selection rectangle if it
              laps outside by fewer than or equal to "fuzz"  pixels.   Default
              value: 1.

       SelectToggleStacking (boolean)
              If  true,  double-clicking  on a window will push it to the back
              instead of zooming it to its full size.  Default value: false.

       SelectWindows (boolean)
              If false, the SELECT mouse button will not  select  windows  and
              icons.   Its  other  functions are unaffected.  The ADJUST mouse
              button can still be used to select windows and  icons.   Default
              value: true.

       ServerGrabs (boolean)
              Controls  whether  olwm grabs the server while menus and notices
              are up.  Default value: true.

       SetInput (enumeration) *
              This controls the input focus mode.  If the value  is  "select",
              it  means  click-to-focus.   If  the  value is "followmouse", it
              means focus-follows-mouse.  Default value: select.

       ShowMoveGeometry (boolean)
              Indicates whether the geometry box should be shown while  moving
              windows and icons.  Default value: false.

       ShowResizeGeometry (boolean)
              Indicates  whether  the  geometry  box  should  be  shown  while
              resizing windows.  Default value: false.

       SnapToGrid (boolean)
              Determines whether icons will snap  to  a  grid  when  they  are
              moved.  Default value: false.

       TextFont (font name)
              Font used in the text of notices.  Default: Lucida-Sans.

       TitleFont (font name)
              Font  used  in  title  bars  atop  windows  and menus.  Default:
              Lucida-Sans Bold.

       TransientsSaveUnder (boolean)
              Specifies whether the save-under attribute of transient  windows
              is to be forced on.  Default value: true.

       TransientsTitled (boolean)
              Specifies  whether  transient  windows  should  have title bars.
              Normally, transient windows have a title bar and resize corners,
              but no window button or pushpin.  Setting this resource to false
              will remove the  title  bar  from  transient  windows.   Default
              value: true.

       Use3D (boolean)
              Specifies  whether to use 3D OPEN LOOK when possible.  If false,
              3D look is never used.  If true, 3D is used unless  the  display
              hardware cannot support it.  Default value: true.

       Use3DFrames (boolean)
              Specifies  whether  to  use a 3D look for the frame borders.  If
              true, the frames will be given a 3D look; otherwise,  they  have
              the  same  thick  border  as in 2D look.  Some people prefer the
              look of 3D frames, but  it  is  more  difficult  to  distinguish
              selected  from  unselected  windows  with this option turned on.
              Default value: false.

       Use3DResize (boolean)
              Specifies whether the window resize corners are to be in the  2D
              or 3D look.  Default value: false.

       WindowColor (color) *
              Specify  the  color  of windows.  This is the "BG1" color for 3D
              OPEN LOOK.  It is used for the backgrounds  of  windows,  menus,
              and notices.  Other the 3D effect is achieved by using highlight
              and shadow colors derived from this color.  Default value: #ccc.

       This specifies a 20% gray value.

       WorkspaceColor (color) *
              Specify the color for the workspace (root window).  On  startup,
              olwm  will  set  the root window's background color to the color
              specified by this resource, and  it  will  restore  the  deafult
              background  on  shutdown.   To  turn  off this behavior, see the
              description of  the  PaintWorkspace  resource.   Default  value:


       In  addition  to  the  global resources described above, olwm also uses
       screen-specific  resources.   The  first  component  of  the   resource
       specification  is  the  trailing  pathname  component  of argv[0].  The
       second component is the screen number appended to the string  `screen'.
       The  third  component  of the resource name is the name of the resource
       itself.  For example,

            olwm.screen1.ReverseVideo: true

       enables reverse video on screen number  1  for  olwm.   To  affect  all
       screens,    you   can   use   resource   wildcarding.    For   example,
       `olwm*ReverseVideo: true' will set reverse video for all  screens  olwm

       The following resources are available both globally and on a per-screen
       basis.  A screen-specific resource overrides the  corresopnding  global
       setting  for  that  screen.   Note  that  screen  specific settings for
       WorkspaceColor and WindowColor will only affect olwm;  this  may  cause
       clashes with XView clients which only use the global setting.


       The  following  resources allow the selection of visuals other than the
       screen's default.  Available visuals may be listed with the xdpyinfo(1)

       Depth (integer)
              Specify  the visual depth to be used when searching for visuals.
              Default value: none.

       Visual (enumeration)
              Specify the visual class to be used when searching for  visuals.
              Valid  visual  classes  are  StaticGray, GrayScale, StaticColor,
              PseudoColor,  TrueColor,  and  DirectColor.   Names  are   case-
              sensitive.  Default value: none.

       VisualID (id)
              Specify  the visual ID to be used.  Note: specifying a visual by
              its ID is not portable, as IDs may vary from  server  to  server
              and  even  from one invocation of a server to the next.  Default
              value: none.


       Olwm implements OPEN LOOK  Mouseless  operation.   This  is  a  set  of
       functions  bound  to  keys  that  enable  one  to use the window system
       entirely without a pointing device.  Some Mouseless functions are  also
       useful for "cross-over" users, who may want to use them as accelerators
       for mouse-based operations.

       One can navigate from window to  window  using  the  Next  Application,
       Previous Application, Next Window, and Previous Window functions, bound
       by default to Alt-n, Alt-Shift-n, Alt-w, and Alt-Shift-w, respectively.
       (See  the  section  on Key Binding for more detailed information.)  You
       can bring up both the window and the workspace  menu  using  Alt-m  and
       Alt-Shift-m, respectively.  Once a menu is up, you can navigate through
       it by using the arrow keys or by pressing the first letter of the  menu
       item  you  want to go to.  You can execute the current item by pressing
       Return, or you can cancel the menu using Stop or Escape.

       You can also move and resize windows use Mouseless functions.  This can
       be  accomplished  by  selecting  the Move or Resize items on the window
       menu.  (Keyboard acclerators for these items  are  Alt-F6  and  Alt-F7,
       respectively.)   In  Move  mode, you can use the arrow keys to move the
       window in the desired direction.  You can also hold  down  the  Control
       key  to  "jump"  the window by a larger distance each time you press an
       arrow key.  In Resize mode, the first arrow key selects  the  edge  you
       are  moving, and subsequent arrow keys move that edge.  For example, to
       shrink a window from the right (that is, to move it right edge  to  the
       left)  you  would first enter resize mode using Alt-F7, press the right
       arrow key to select the right edge, and then press the left  arrow  key
       to  move  the  edge  to  the  left.  As in move mode, you can hold down
       Control to "jump" the edge by  a  greater  increment.   You  can  press
       Return  to accept the new size or location, and you can press Escape or
       Stop to abort the move or resize operation.


       Key bindings are specified using resources.  There is one resource  per
       function,  and  the  value  of  the resources are the keys to which the
       function is bound.  The resource value consists  of  a  comma-separated
       list  of  key  specifications.   Each  key  specification consists of a
       keysym optionally followed by modifier keysyms;  the  modifier  keysyms
       are  separated  by  `+'  signs.  For example, to bind a function to F2,
       control-F3, and alt-shift-F4, one would use the value:


       Any keysym whose key is in the  modifier  mapping  may  be  used  as  a
       modifier.   The  following  can  also  be  used  as  aliases for common
       modifier keysyms: Shift, Lock, Control, Ctrl, Ctl,  Meta,  Alt,  Super,
       and Hyper.

       Resource  names  are  prefixed  with the trailing pathname component of
       argv[0], followed by KeyboardCommand (note that this is  singular,  not
       to  be  confused  with  the  KeyboardCommands  resource), followed by a
       resource  from  the  following  list.   For   example,   the   resource
       specification for setting the Stop function would typically be:


       Each  item in this list is followed by its default keyboard binding and
       a description of what the function does.  Items marked with an asterisk
       `*'  involve keyboard grabs.  Other items are active only while olwm is
       in a mode, such as when a menu is up.  Note: most of the functions that
       require grabs are active only when the KeyboardCommands resource is set
       to Full.  See the description of this resource in the section on Global

       Olwm will alter the operation of certain mouse-based functions based on
       the  state  of  the  modifier  keys.   The  relationship  between   the
       alteration  and  the associated modifier keys is controlled by a set of
       resources.  Resource names are  prefixed  with  the  trailing  pathname
       component of argv[0], followed by Modifier, followed by a resource from
       the list below.  For example, the resource specification  to  bind  the
       Reduce modifier would typically be


       The  value  of  each  resource  is  a  comma-separated list of modifier
       keysyms.  Each item in this list is followed by  its  default  modifier
       and a description of what it does.

       Constrain (Control)
              Constrain  a move or resize operation to be only on a horizontal
              or vertical direction.

       Ignore (Lock, NumLock, mod5, Mode_switch)
              The set of modifiers to be ignored when processing mouse events.
              This  resource  should  contain the set of locking modifiers, so
              that mouse actions are still  interpreted  properly  even  while
              locking modifiers are in effect.

       Invert (Shift)
              When  moving  windows,  temporarily  invert  the  sense  of  the
              DragWindow resource.  When resizing a window,  temporarily  move
              the  window  as  long  as this modifier is held down.  Return to
              resizing when the modifier is released.

       Reduce (Meta)
              When moving windows, reduce the amount  of  mouse  motion  by  a
              factor of ten.

       SetDefault (Control)
              Sets the default item for a menu.

       WMGrab (Alt)
              Using  the  WMGrab  modifier  allows  access to the mouse button
              functions anywhere over the window, not just over  the  window's
              title bar and border.


              Specifies the X11 server to which to connect.

              These  variables  specify which locale to use when other methods
              of locale announcement are not available.  (See the  section  on
              Locale Handling for more details.)

              Specifies a file to use for the Workspace Menu.



              Contains the user-customized Workspace Menu specification.


              Contains the default Workspace Menu specification.

              Stores  the  command  lines  obtained  during the Save Workspace

       The  resource  names do not follow any classing structure.  There is no
       general way to specify resources on a per-client basis.

       There is no way to  reconfigure  the  mouse  buttons.   This  makes  it
       impossible  to use olwm on a system that has a one-button mouse with no
       provision for simulating a  second  or  third  mouse  button.   (It  is
       possible to use olwm with a two-button mouse.  See the section on Mouse

       The Exit menu item on the Workspace Menu doesn't really shut  down  the
       server.   It kills off all clients being managed by the window manager,
       and then it exits the window manager itself.  This  works  properly  if
       some outside agent such as xinit(1) or xdm(1) is waiting for the window
       manager or a client to exit.  The  outside  agent  will  take  care  of
       shutting  down  the  server or reinitializing it.  If you've started up
       the server a different way, this option may  not  work.   Instead,  the
       server  will  be  left  running  with  no clients and no window manager
       running, and you will have to login from elsewhere to kill the  server.
       An  alternative  for users of X11/NeWS is to add the following entry to
       the root menu:

            Exit POSTSCRIPT shutdownserver
       This will shut  down  the  server  immediately,  with  no  confirmation

       Olwm  is  fairly simplistic about how it manages its keyboard bindings.
       For example, if you bind a function to control-F2, olwm  will  grab  F2
       with  the  Control  modifier  and with all combinations of the Lock and
       NumLock modifiers.  If another locking modifier is  in  effect,  olwm's
       passive  grab  will  not  be  activated, and thus the function will not

       Olwm cannot manage multiple locales at one time, therefore all  clients
       should be running in the same locale.  The "C" locale is the exception.
       Applications  using  the  "C"  locale  (such  as  non-internationalized
       applications) can be mixed with applications using one other locale.

       Olwm  does  not  handle  different sizes of the glyph fonts well.  Each
       locale can define a different size for the default font  (for  example,
       the  default glyph font size is 12 for the "C" locale and is 14 for the
       "japanese" locale).  Olwm does not re-position the  window  decorations
       after  switching locale, therefore the window decorations may appear to
       be wrong.  To remedy this problem partially, olwm will not  change  the
       font  when  locale  is  switching from non-"C" locale to the "C" locale
       (fonts for non-"C" locales are always supersets of  the  font  for  "C"

       There is no input focus feedback for nonrectangular windows.  The title
       string of nonrectangular windows cannot be displayed.

       Olwm  will  not  dynamically  track  screen-specific  resources.   Only
       changes to global resources are applied.

       The   interaction   of   the   AutoColorFocus,   ColorFocusLocked,  and
       ColorTracksInputFocus resources and the  color  locking  and  unlocking
       keys is overly complex.
