       amiwm - Amiga Workbench-like X Window Manager




       amiwm is an X Window manager that tries to make your workstation look like an Amiga®


       Amiwm  is  configurable with a $HOME/.amiwmrc-file containing some or all of the following

FastQuit: {yes|no}

       Specifies whether amiwm should quit directly when the Quit menu item is  selected,  rather
       than popping up a requester.  (on/off or true/false can be used instead of yes/no.)

SizeBorder {right|bottom|both|none}

       Specifies which border should be enlarged when a sizegadget is present.

ForceMove {manual|auto|always}

       Enables  you to move windows outside the perimeter of the root window when pressing shift,
       when trying to drag at least 25% of the window ofscreen, or always, respectively.

IconDir path

       Specifies a directory in which amiwm will look for icons.

DefaultIcon name

       Gives the filename of the .info file to use as a default icon.   It  is  relative  to  the

IconPalette {system|magicwb|schwartz|filename"}

       Selects  either the Workbench® default palette, or the MagicWorkbench standard palette for
       use with icons.  The third option is a  16  color  palette  used  on  the  "Eric  Schwartz
       Productions  CD  Archive".   Alternatively,  the  filename  of a PPM file representing the
       palette to use can be used.


       Selects a font to use for windowtitles etc.


       Selects a font for icontitles.


               bartrimpen} “colorname"

       Modifies the colour scheme for the window manager.

CustomIconsOnly {yes|no}

       This prevent applications to display their own icons when in iconified state.  Only  icons
       defined  in  amiwmrc  for each apps will be used.  Because apps own icon are too different
       from one eachother.  They comes in various sizes and themes. Some  icons  will  be  32x32,
       while  some  other  will be a 128x128 or even bigger .. By using this option, You have the
       possibility to decide which icon should be used for each app.   If  no  custom  icons  are
       defined  at all, the will be used for all iconified apps. Format is: style {
       class "myClass" icon "" } To find out a given program's class, use  "xlsclients
       -l"  to list all opened applications, and then use "xprop -id <0x0000000>" to list a given
       app's properties. Use either WM_CLASS or WM_ICON_NAME strings in amiwmrc.

ShortLabelIcons {yes|no}

       This limit the length of the text for iconified programs. For example, if this  option  is
       activated, an iconified program text will be limited to 8 chars + ".."  Use this option if
       you don't want iconified program text to be loong strings..

TitleBarClock {yes|no}

       Enables a clock in the titlebar.  It displays the date and time.

TitleClockFormat [<number>] time string

       This lets you choose a new format to display the Title Bar  Clock.   The  time  string  is
       formatted  with  the  standard  strftime()  parameters.  The default is "%c".  It has been
       found that "%a %b %e %Y   %l:%M %p" works well too.  Number  is  the  update  interval  in


       Adds  an  item  in the Tools menu with the specified name, which executes the command when
       selected.  A string containing a single uppercase letter may be  specified  as  the  third
       argument, making this letter a hotkey for the item.

ToolItem Separator

       Inserts a separator bar in the Tools menu.

ToolItemname" { <tool item commands>}

       Create  ToolItem:s  in  a  submenu  with  the specified name.  It is not legal to create a
       submenu inside another submenu.

Screen [<number>]name"

       Create a new screen with the specified name.  It will be placed below all earlier  created
       screens.   To  move a window between two screens, iconify it and drag the icon over to the
       other screen.  If the second argument is given, this screen is placed on the corresponding
       X screen.


       Sets  one  or  more directories where amiwm will look for module binaries.  The default is
       AMIWM_HOME.   Note  that  the  module  binaries  cannot  be   shared   amongst   different

Modulename" ["initstring"]

       Start  a  module  with  the specified name.  If initstring is specified, it is sent to the
       module.  There are currently two modules shipped  with  amiwm;  Background  and  Keyboard.
       These  are  documented  in  the  file  README.modules.  If a module is limited to a single
       screen, like the Background module, the screen that was created last is used.

InterScreenGap number

       Sets the size in number of pixels of the "video DMA off" area that appears between screens
       when they are dragged.

AutoRaise {yes|no}

       Selects whether windows will automatically be moved to the front when they are activated.

Focus {followmouse|sloppy|clicktotype}

       Sets  the  policy  by which windows are given focus.  Followmouse is the default and means
       that the window that contains the mouse pointer will have focus.  Sloppy  means  that  the
       window  that  had  focus  last  will  keep  it  when  the  pointer  is  not over a window.
       ClickToType is the original AmigaOS policy in which you have to explicitly give  focus  to
       windows by clicking in them.


       The most likely reason for amiwm to crash is if it can't find its default icon, or if this
       is not accepted as a *.info file.  If this happens, amiwm _will_ dump core.  So make  sure
       that either 'make install' runs successfully (in which case amiwm will know where its icon
       is), or that the file .amiwmrc contains a correct specification of the icon's location.
