gnome-wm - Launches the user selected window manager for the GNOME session


gnome-wm [--default-wm windowmanager] [--sm-client-id id]


The gnome-wm script invokes the user selected window manager. If the user has not chosen a window manager it will try to launch a GNOME compliant window manager.
The user can overwrite the selection of a window manager by setting the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable. If a --default-wm option is given the script uses that window manager in case WINDOW_MANAGER is not set. If gnome-wm is given as the argument to --default-wm then it is the same as if no default was given.
The script takes the --sm-client-id argument and translates the id to an appropriate option depending on which window manager was selected.


The gnome-wm program uses the value of the WINDOW_MANAGER environment variable to let the user override the configured window manager.


R gnome-session(1), default.session(5)
