wmbutton - dockable launcher application


wmbutton [OPTIONS]


This manual page documents briefly the wmbutton command.

wmbutton is a 64x64 pixel application that displays nine buttons and can be used as
dockapp for X window managers such as Window Maker, AfterStep, BlackBox, and
Enlightenment. Each of these buttons can be configured via a configuration file to run
just about any application you would like to. Basically, if you can type it in a shell
command, wmbutton can run it.

wmbutton is configured using a configuration file, ~/.wmbutton (or /etc/wmbutton.conf).
Its format is documented in the "Configuration" section below.


-g <geometry>
Window Geometry - ie: 64x64+10+10

-d <display>
Display - ie:

-f <filename>
Full path to configuration file.

-b <filename>
Full path to button xpm.

-F <font>
Custom tooltip font (e.g. -bh-lucidatypewriter-medium-*-*-*-12-*)

-v Verbose Mode, gives extra debug output.

-h Quick overview of available options.

-m Disable Middle Mouse functionality.

-s Swap tooltip colors.

-n Turn off tooltips.


The configuration file is case sensitive. A # starts a comment, and lines consisting
entirely of whitespace are ignored. The syntax is simply:

<buttonnumber> <command>

command can be anything you can type in as a shell command.

Buttons are numbered as follows:

Left button
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9

Middle button
11 12 13
14 15 16
17 18 19

Right button
21 22 23
24 25 26
27 28 29

To use other icons, wmbutton has to be rebuilt. View /usr/share/doc/wmbutton/README.Debian
for further information.
