 NAME
      qvwm - Windows 95/98 like window manager for X11


 SYNPSIS
      qvwm [ options ]


 DESCRIPTION
      Qvwm is a Windows 95/98 like window manager for X11. It is written in
      C++ from scratch without depending on twm or fvwm. The end is that it
      draws near the look-and-feel of Windows 95/98 as far as possible, and
      it provides the functions of a taskbar and shortcuts. Also, it
      supports virtual screen and a pager to be convenient to use it as a
      window manager. Furthermore, it deals with any languages because it is
      considered with internationalization.


 OPTIONS
      Qvwm has the following options.

      --clientid client_id
           Specifies the client Id from the previous session.  It is
           equivalent to -id or -clientId.

           Displays compile options.  It is equivalent to -cfg.

      --display display_name
           Specifies the display name that qvwm uses by display_name. If you
           don't specify this option, qvwm uses the environment variable
           $DISPLAY.  It is equivalent to -d or -display.

      --help
           Displays simple description of qvwm command line options.

      --noparse

      --rcfile rcfile_name
           Specifies the configuration file that qvwm reads on startup by
           rcfile_name. By default, $HOME/.qvwmrc is read; if it doesn't

      --restart
           Starts qvwm without executing a [Startup] section in a
           configuration file.  It is equivalent to -r.

                                 1 June 2001



 ACCESSORY CONFIGURATION
      You can put accessories, your favorite images including animation
      files, on the desktop.  You can configure accessories as follows:

           [Accessories]
           image   location   style

      Specify the name of an image file whose format qvwm supports for
      image.  location is Top, Bottom, Left, Right, TopLeft, TopRight,
      BottomLeft, BottomRight, Center, or geometry position (like +0+0).
      style is Background, OnTop, or Application.  Background means that the
      image is put below all windows and shortcut icons.  OnTop means that
      the image is put above all windows and shortcut icons.  Application
      means that the image has a window frame and you can move it.



 INCLUDE STATEMENT
      You can read external files by using include statement in a
      configuration file.

           ex) include /home/kourai/.qvwmrc.local




 PATH NAME
      You can use ~ for your home directory, ~user for user's home
      directory, and environment variables following to $.

           ex) include $HOME/.qvwmrc.local
               IconPath = ~/lib/qvwm/pixmaps




 SUPPORTED IMAGE FORMATS
      Qvwm supports xpm format(extension .xpm).  If you use Imlib, qvwm also
      supports formats that Imlib supports.  Also, qvwm supports animation
      files for qvwm(extension .ani).  Because the animation files contain
      some images as it is, an animation file is supported if qvwm supports
      all formats of the images in the file.



 REMOTE COMMAND
      The user can make qvwm execute internal commands by sending commands
      to /tmp/qvwm-display_name.  This facility is valid only when qvwm is
      compiled with the remote command support and the AllowRemoteCmd
      variable is True.  The users that can send commands are only the user
      that starts qvwm and the root user.

                                 1 June 2001



      The command consists of strings of internal commands, which is devided
      by '0.  For example, if you send the QVWM_EXIT command, execute

           echo "QVWM_EXIT" > /tmp/qvwm-:0.0




 FILE
      $HOME/.qvwmrc               user configuration file

      $HOME/.qvwm-theme           user theme configuration file
                                  (conventionally included in .qvwmrc)

      <QVWMDIR>/system.qvwmrc     system configuration file (<QVWMDIR> is
                                  the directory specified at compile.)

      /tmp/qvwm-display_name      FIFO for sending remote commands


 WARNING
      Though qvwm's official version has been released, it may be not stable
      enough in some environments.  I am not responsible for any damages
      arising out of the use of qvwm.
