|CWM(1)||General Commands Manual||CWM(1)|
cwmis a window manager for X11 which contains many features that concentrate on the efficiency and transparency of window management, while maintaining the simplest and most pleasant aesthetic.
The options are as follows:
cwmloads ~/.cwmrc, if present. Any error messages from lines in the configuration file will be sent to stderr; however,
cwmwill continue to process the rest of the configuration file.
-voptions increase the verbosity.
cwm actions are initiated either via key
or mouse bindings. The following notations are used throughout this
The default key bindings are:
The default mouse bindings are:
The following key bindings may be used to navigate search and exec dialogs:
cwm rereads its configuration file when it
receives a hangup signal,
SIGHUP, by executing
itself with the name and arguments with which it was started. This is
equivalent to the restart function.
cwmfeatures the ability to search for windows by their current title, old titles, and by their label. The priority for the search results are: label, current title, old titles in reverse order, and finally window class name.
cwmkeeps a history of the 5 previous titles of a window.
When searching, the leftmost character of the result list may show a flag:
cwmhas the ability to group windows together, and use the groups to perform operations on the entire group instead of just one window. Together with the sticky option, this can be used to emulate virtual desktops.
To edit groups, use the group selection commands to toggle membership of a group. A blue border will be shown briefly on windows added to the current group, and a red border will be shown on those just removed.
cwmstarts on this display unless the
-doption is given.
cwmwas originally inspired by evilwm, but was rewritten from scratch due to limitations in the evilwm codebase. The from-scratch rewrite borrowed some code from 9wm, however that code has since been removed or rewritten.
