glazier — X window
glazier is a floating window manipulation
utility for X11. Its goal is to keep track of the focused window (using
sloppy focus technique) and let the user move/resize windows with the mouse
glazier supports different 5 operations on
windows, each bound to a mouse button. To trigger these operations, a
modifier key (default: Mod1) must be held before pressing the appropriate
Note: The numbers correspond to the mouse button being pressed. Only one operation at a time is supported. The move_step factor is specified at compilation time in config.h.
glazier does not comply with the EWMH
specification. The specification exist for applications to instruct a window
manager how it should behave. I believe that the user should be left with
the responsibility of managing applications, and not the other way
If you need (partial) compliance with these specification, consider using ewmh(1).
Manipulating windows with the keyboard is both efficient, and
glazier cannot do that. Implementing
that within a window manager is often too rigid, and doesn't provide enough
flexibility to the user. For this reason, I think it is more valuable to use
external tools like wmutils(1)
There is not configuration files in
glazier. The software is configured at compilation
time, by tweaking the config.h file. Refer to this
file for precisions on what can be configured.
