NAME

icesh - control properties of windows

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

icesh provides commands for use by shell scripts that affect a window’s state similar to wmctrl(1) or xdotool(1), except more limited, specifically for icewm(1), and limited to affecting GNOME WinWM/WMH properties.

OPTIONS

icesh recognizes the following options:

COMMAND OPTIONS

Command options are mutually exclusive. Only one command option can be specified per invocation. If no command option is specified, action argument parsing and processing is performed.

GENERAL OPTIONS

ARGUMENTS

icesh accepts the following arguments:

USAGE

The purpose of icesh is to provide commands that can be used from a shell script (see sh(1)) to affect the state, geometry and hints associated with a window, or to list and parse information about existing windows.

It should be noted that icesh works on any window manager that is compliant with the GNOME WinWM/WMH specification. The setTrayOption action; however, is IceWM specific.

EXAMPLES

The following command will list all the workspaces associated with the root window after a window (any window) is selected:

icesh listWorkspaces

Example output:

workspace #0: `main'
workspace #1: `web'
workspace #2: `doc'
workspace #3: `dev'
workspace #4: `scr'
workspace #5: `gfx'
workspace #6: `misc'
workspace #7: `'

ENVIRONMENT

The following environment variables are set or examined by icesh:

COMPLIANCE

While icesh is largely compliant with the GNOME WinWM/WMH specification, it does not support NetWM/EWMH.

BUGS

icesh had no known bugs at the time of release. Please report bugs for current versions to the source code repository at Github.

HISTORY

icesh is historical and deprecated. The command originally (and still) only supported the GNOME WinWM/WMH specification. Unlike wmctrl(1) and xdotool(1), NetWM/EWMH support was never included. Except for the setTrayOption command, wmctrl(1) and xdotool(1) are quite capable of performing the necessary functions and more.
