       dwm - dynamic window manager


       dwm [-v]


       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 on the
       left contains one window by default, and the stacking area on the right contains all other
       windows.  The  number  of  master  area  windows can be adjusted from zero to an arbitrary
       number. 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.


       -v     prints version information to stderr, then exits.

       dwm  is  customized  by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code. This
       keeps it fast, secure and simple.

       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.
