NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     windows - customization panel for setting various 4Dwm resources

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The windows customization panel allows the	user to	set certain IRIX
     Interactive Desktop resources applicable to the SGI window	manager
     (4Dwm).  The following is a list of resources configurable	via the
     windows customization panel:

	 Toolchest Orientation	   (horizontal/vertical)
	 Keyboard Focus		   (click to type/point	to type)
	 Display Windows Overview  (on/off)
	 Opaque	Window Move	   (on/off)
	 Auto Window Placement	   (on/off)
	 Save Windows &	Desks	   (continuously/explicitly)

     If	Save Windows & Desks is	set to Explicitly, the Set Home	Session	button
     can be used to save the current state of your windows on the desktop.

     When Toolchest Orientation, Keyboard Focus	or Display Windows Overview is
     modified, a notifier appears stating that the change will not take	effect
     fully until the window manager is restarted.  Since 4Dwm activates	these
     window settings, it must be restarted to apply the	changes	fully.
     Restarting	4Dwm usually takes a few seconds.

     For more information about	the entire IRIX	Interactive Desktop
     environment and about the XUSERFILESEARCHPATH environment variable, see
     the IID(1)	man page.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]


     The windows panel saves the user's	settings in the	$HOME/.Sgiresources
     file.  If the user	has a .Xdefaults or .Xresources	file that contains
     resources that this customization panel modifies, the default files will
     take precedence over .Sgiresources.

     Like most other customization panels, the windows panel has the
     ``runonce'' feature, meaning only one instance of the application will
     run at one	time.  Attempting to launch the	application a second time will
     have the effect of	deiconifying the application window or popping it to
     the top on	the current desk.

     Unlike most other SGI applications, the windows panel will	not be
     restored at login by 4Dwm session management.  This avoids	the windows
     panel being remembered as part of the user's session, when	the user
     chooses to	Save Windows & Desks Explicitly.
