0. Legal notices

This program is distributed as FreeWare.  The copyright remains with
the author.

Amiga and Workbench are registered trademarks of Amiga Technologies GMBH.

1. Intro

This is amiwm, an X window manager that tries to make your workstation
look like an Amiga®.  "Why?" you ask.  Because I wanted it to.  So there!

2. Compiling etc.

For instructions on building and installing, read the file INSTALL.

3. Configuration

amiwm reads the file .amiwmrc in the directory pointed to by $HOME
when starting.  If this file does not exist, it reads the file
system.amiwmrc instead.

The configuration file can contain any of the following statements:

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 IconDir.

IconPalette {system|magicwb}

Selects either the Workbench® default palette, or the MagicWorkbench
standard palette for use with icons.

ScreenFont "fontname"

Selects a font to use for windowtitles etc.

IconFont "fontname"

Selects a font for icontitles.

{detailpen|blockpen|textpen|shinepen|shadowpen|fillpen|filltextpen|
	backgroundpen|highlighttextpen|bardetailpen|barblockpen|
	bartrimpen} "colorname"

Modifies the colour scheme for the window manager.

ToolItem "name" "command"

Adds an item in the Tools menu with the specified name, which executes
the command when selected.

ToolItem Separator

Inserts a separator bar in the Tools menu.

ToolItem "name" { <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 "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.

ModulePath "path(:path...)"

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 architectures.

Module "name" ["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 wheteher windows will automatically be moved to the front when
they are activated.


4. Troubleshooting

The most likely reason for the windowmanager to crash is if it
can't find its default icon, or if this is not accepted as an
.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.

Don't mail me bug reports just because amiwm prints "Bad Window" on
stderr once in a while.  Redirect it to /dev/null or live with it.  :)
