Branch: pkgsrc-2018Q4, Version: 2.34.13nb10, Package name: metacity-2.34.13nb10, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Metacity is not a meta-City as in an urban center, but rather Meta-ness as in
the state of being meta. i.e. metacity : meta as opacity : opaque. Also
it may have something to do with the Meta key on UNIX keyboards.

- Boring window manager for the adult in you. Many window managers are like
Marshmallow Froot Loops; Metacity is like Cheerios.
- Uses GTK+ 2.0 for drawing window frames. This means colors, fonts, etc.
come from GTK+ theme.
- Has a simple theme system and a couple of extra themes come with it.
Change themes via gconf-editor or gconftool:
gconftool-2 --type=string --set /apps/metacity/general/theme Crux
- Change number of workspaces via gconf-editor or gconftool:
gconftool-2 --type=int --set /apps/metacity/general/num_workspaces 5
Can also change workspaces from GNOME 2 pager.
- Change focus mode:
gconftool-2 --type=string --set /apps/metacity/general/focus_mode mouse
