NAME cwmrc — calm window manager configuration file
DESCRIPTION This manual page describes the openbsd-cwm(1) configuration file. The current line can be extended over multiple lines using a backslash (‘\’). Comments can be put anywhere in the file using a hash mark (‘#’), and extend to the end of the current line. Care should be taken when commenting out multi-line text: the comment is effective until the end of the entire block. Arguments containing whitespace should be surrounded by double quotes ("). The following options are accepted: autogroup group windowclass autogroup group windowname,windowclass Automatically add new windows to group if their class property matches windowclass, or if their name and class properties match windowname and windowclass, respec‐ tively. The more specific last match wins. group is a number between 0 and 9. If group is 0, matching windows will not be added to any group; this may be used to override “sticky group mode”. The name and class values, respectively, for existing windows are both set in the WM_CLASS property and may be obtained using xprop(1). bind keys command Cause the creation of a key binding, or replacement of a default key binding. The modifier keys come first, followed by a ‘-’. The following modifiers are recognised: C The Control key. M The Meta key. S The Shift key. 4 The Mod4 key (normally the windows key). The ‘-’ should be followed by a keysym name, taken from /usr/X11R6/include/X11/keysymdef.h. The command may either be one from the BIND COMMAND LIST (see below) or the command line that is to be executed. A special command keyword “unmap” can be used to remove the named key binding. This can be used to remove a binding which conflicts with an application. borderwidth pixels Set the window border width to pixels. color activeborder color Set the color of the active border. color font color Set menu font color. color selfont color Set font color for selected menu item. color groupborder color Set the color of the border while grouping a window. color inactiveborder color Set the color of the inactive border. color menubg color Set menu background color. color menufg color Set menu foreground color. color urgencyborder color Set the color of the border of a window indicating urgency. color ungroupborder color Set the color of the border while ungrouping a window. command name path Every name entry is shown in the application menu. When selected, the defined path is executed with execve(2). The name entries term and lock have a special meaning. They point to the terminal and screen locking programs specified by key bindings. The defaults are xterm(1) and xlock(1), respectively. fontname font Change the default font for Xft(3). gap top bottom left right Define a “gap” in pixels at the edge of the screen, so that when a window is maxi‐ mized it will not overlap this area. This “gap” can be used for applications such as xclock(1), where the user may wish to remain visible. ignore windowname Ignore, and do not warp to, windows with the name windowname when drawing borders and cycling through windows. mousebind buttons command Cause the creation of a mouse binding, or replacement of a default mouse binding. The modifier keys come first, followed by a ‘-’. The following modifiers are recognised: C The Control key. M The Meta key. S The Shift key. 4 The Mod4 key (normally the windows key). The ‘-’ should be followed by number: 1 Left mouse button. 2 Middle mouse button. 3 Right mouse button. 4 Scroll up mouse button. 5 Scroll down mouse button. The command may be taken from the MOUSEBIND COMMAND LIST (see below). moveamount pixels Set a default size for the keyboard movement bindings, in pixels. The default is 1. snapdist pixels Minimum distance to snap-to adjacent edge, in pixels. The default is 0. sticky yes|no Toggle sticky group mode. The default behavior for new windows is to not assign any group. By enabling sticky group mode, openbsd-cwm(1) will assign new windows to the currently selected group.
