gnome-wm - Launches the user selected window manager for the GNOME session
gnome-wm [--default-wm windowmanager] [--sm-client-id id]
The gnome-wm script invokes the user selected window manager. If the
user has not chosen a window manager it will try to launch a GNOME com-
pliant window manager.
The user can overwrite the selection of a window manager by setting the
WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable. If a --default-wm option is given
the script uses that window manager in case WINDOW_MANAGER is not set.
If gnome-wm is given as the argument to --default-wm then it is the
same as if no default was given.
The script takes the --sm-client-id argument and translates the id to
an appropriate option depending on which window manager was selected.
The gnome-wm program uses the value of the WINDOW_MANAGER environment
variable to let the user override the configured window manager.
The program stores the current selection of a window manager in the
gconf key /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/default
If you find bugs in the gnome-wm program, please report these using
bug-buddy or the gnome-bug script included with the GNOME libraries
