       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.

       --sync Make X calls synchronous
