toolbar - window manager toolbar


wm/toolbar [ -s ]


Toolbar is designed to be run as the controlling application under an instance of wm(1). It runs an initialisation shell script, provides a menu allowing the user to start new programs. and shows icons representing windows that have been hidden.

When toolbar is started, it configures itself by means of the /lib/wmsetup shell script. Toolbar loads the shell sh(1), and defines the following shell built-in commands before executing the script:

menu title1 [title2] command
Insert an item at the top of the start menu. Title1 is the text of the item on the main menu. If title2 is given then title1 is a sub-menu with title2 as the menu item. Command is executed by the shell whenever the item is selected. An item with an empty command is displayed as a separator.
Forget all menu items.

The standard /lib/wmsetup script executes the script /usr/username/lib/wmsetup, enabling each user to have their own window manager configuration.


Initialisation shell-script.
