       This manual page documents briefly metacity.

       metacity is a minimal X window manager aimed at nontechnical  users  and  is  designed  to
       integrate  well with the GNOME desktop.  metacity lacks some features that may be expected
       by traditional UNIX or other technical users; these users may want  to  investigate  other
       available window managers for use with GNOME or standalone.


              Connect to X display DISPLAY.

              a window manager which is running is replaced by metacity.  Users are encouraged to
              change the GNOME window manager by  running  the  new  WM  with  the  --replace  or
              -replace option, and subsequently saving the session.

              Specify a session management ID.

              Disable the session management.

              Load a session from FILENAME.

              Print the version number.
