amiwm - Amiga Workbench-like X Window Manager




amiwm is an X Window manager that tries to make your workstation look like an Amiga®


Amiwm is configurable with a $HOME/.amiwmrc-file containing some or all of the following

FastQuit: {yes|no}

Specifies whether amiwm should quit directly when the Quit menu item is selected, rather
than popping up a requester. (on/off or true/false can be used instead of yes/no.)

SizeBorder {right|bottom|both|none}

Specifies which border should be enlarged when a sizegadget is present.

ForceMove {manual|auto|always}

Enables you to move windows outside the perimeter of the root window when pressing shift,
when trying to drag at least 25% of the window ofscreen, or always, respectively.

IconDir path

Specifies a directory in which amiwm will look for icons.

DefaultIcon name

Gives the filename of the .info file to use as a default icon. It is relative to the

IconPalette {system|magicwb|schwartz|filename"}

Selects either the Workbench® default palette, or the MagicWorkbench standard palette for
use with icons. The third option is a 16 color palette used on the "Eric Schwartz
Productions CD Archive". Alternatively, the filename of a PPM file representing the
palette to use can be used.


Selects a font to use for windowtitles etc.


Selects a font for icontitles.


bartrimpen} “colorname"

Modifies the colour scheme for the window manager.


Adds an item in the Tools menu with the specified name, which executes the command when
selected. A string containing a single uppercase letter may be specified as the third
argument, making this letter a hotkey for the item.

ToolItem Separator

Inserts a separator bar in the Tools menu.

ToolItemname" { <tool item commands>}

Create ToolItem:s in a submenu with the specified name. It is not legal to create a
submenu inside another submenu.

Screen [<number>]name"

Create a new screen with the specified name. It will be placed below all earlier created
screens. To move a window between two screens, iconify it and drag the icon over to the
other screen. If the second argument is given, this screen is placed on the corresponding
X screen.


Sets one or more directories where amiwm will look for module binaries. The default is
AMIWM_HOME. Note that the module binaries cannot be shared amongst different

Modulename" ["initstring"]

Start a module with the specified name. If initstring is specified, it is sent to the
module. There are currently two modules shipped with amiwm; Background and Keyboard.
These are documented in the file README.modules. If a module is limited to a single
screen, like the Background module, the screen that was created last is used.

InterScreenGap number

Sets the size in number of pixels of the "video DMA off" area that appears between screens
when they are dragged.

AutoRaise {yes|no}

Selects whether windows will automatically be moved to the front when they are activated.

Focus {followmouse|sloppy|clicktotype}

Sets the policy by which windows are given focus. Followmouse is the default and means
that the window that contains the mouse pointer will have focus. Sloppy means that the
window that had focus last will keep it when the pointer is not over a window.
ClickToType is the original AmigaOS policy in which you have to explicitly give focus to
windows by clicking in them.


The most likely reason for amiwm to crash is if it can't find its default icon, or if this
is not accepted as a *.info file. If this happens, amiwm _will_ dump core. So make sure
that either 'make install' runs successfully (in which case amiwm will know where its icon
is), or that the file .amiwmrc contains a correct specification of the icon's location.

Use amiwm online using onworks.net services
