gnome-wm - Launches the user selected window manager for the GNOME session

SYNOPSIS
       gnome-wm [--default-wm windowmanager] [--sm-client-id id]

DESCRIPTION
       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.



ENVIRONMENT
       The gnome-wm program uses the value of the  WINDOW_MANAGER  environment
       variable to let the user override the configured window manager.

PERSISTENT SETTINGS
       The  program  stores  the  current selection of a window manager in the
       gconf key /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/default

SEE ALSO
       gnome-session(1),default.session(5)

       bug-buddy  or  the  gnome-bug  script included with the GNOME libraries
       distribution.
