WMDOCKER(1) General Commands Manual WMDOCKER(1)


wmdocker - System tray for KDE3/GNOME2 docklet applications


wmdocker [options]


This manual page documents briefly the wmdocker command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

wmdocker is a docking application (WindowMaker dock app) which acts as a system tray for KDE3 and GNOME2. It can be used to replace the panel in either environment, allowing you to have a system tray without running the KDE/GNOME panel.

Docker was written and designed to work with Openbox 2, but it should work fine in any window manager that supports WindowMaker dock apps.


Show summary of options.
The X display to connect to.
The width of the border to put around the system tray icons. Defaults to 1.

WindowMaker mode. This makes wmdocker a fixed size (64x64) to appear nicely in in WindowMaker. Note: In this mode, you have a fixed number of icons that wmdocker can hold.
The size (width and height and height) to display icons as in the system tray. Defaults to 24.
The background color to use for the tray. Defaults to whatever color the window manager specifies.
