       metacity  is a fully integrated window manager that is designed to integrate well with the
       GNOME desktop.  To configure metacity, use the GNOME preferences dialogs.

       metacity-theme-viewer is an application for testing and displaying metacity themes.

       Note: The metacity window manager also provides a library called libmetacity-private. This
       library	is  licensed  under GPL. Please see the license file at /usr/share/doc/SUNWgnome-
       wm/COPYING.bz2 for implications when writing a program which uses this library.

       --display=display       Specify the remote X display to be used	by  the  window  manager,
			       where display is in the following format:

       The following operands are supported:

       theme-name	       Specifies  the theme that metacity-theme-viewer should use.  If no
			       theme is specified on the command line, then metacity-theme-viewer
			       loads  the  Crux theme. An error message is displayed if the theme
			       does not exist.
