metacity [--display=DISPLAY] [--replace] [--sm-client-id=ID] [--sm-disable] [--sm-save-file=FILENAME] [--sync] [--composite] [--no-compos- ite] [--no-force-fullscreen] [--version] [--help]
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.
--display=DISPLAY Connect to X display DISPLAY. --replace 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. --sm-client-id=ID Specify a session management ID. --sm-disable Disable the session management. --sm-save-file=FILENAME Load a session from FILENAME. --sync Make X calls synchronous --composite Turn compositing on --no-composite Turn compositing off --no-force-fullscreen Don't make fullscreen windows that are maximized and have no decorations --version Print the version number. -?, --help Show summary of options.
metacity configuration can be found under Preferences->Windows and Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts on the menu-panel. Advanced configura- tion can be achieved directly through gsettings.
The original manual page was written by Thom May <>. It was updated by Akira TAGOH <> for the Debian GNU/Linux system (with permission to use by others), and then updated by Luke Morton and Philip O'Brien for inclusion in metacity. 16 May 2013 METACITY(1)
