mate-wm - Start the window manager configured by the user


mate-wm [--default-wm=WINDOWMANAGER] [--sm-client-id=ID]


The mate-wm program starts the window manager configured by the user. If the user has not
chosen a window manager it will launch a MATE compliant window manager.


The user can define his preferred window manager with the
/org/mate/desktop/session/required-components/windowmanager dconf key. The value of this
key should be the name of the desktop file of the desired window manager, without its
.desktop extension. If this key is set to mate-wm, then mate-wm will simply look for an
appropriate window manager. The user can also override the selection of a window manager
by setting the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable.

If the --default-wm option is used, mate-wm will use WINDOWMANAGER as window manager if
the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable is not set and if the
/org/mate/desktop/session/required-components/windowmanager dconf key does not define a
specific window manager, or if the configured window manager cannot be found.

The --sm-client-id option is translated to an appropriate option depending on which window
manager will be started.


The following options are supported:

Define the default window manager to start if no window manager is configured, or
if the configured window manager cannot be found.

Specify the session management ID when connecting to the session manager.


mate-wm uses the value of the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable to let the user override
the configured window manager.

Use mate-wm online using onworks.net services
