wmwm is a wacky manager of window manager.
wmwm stands for Wacky Manager of Window Manager.
wmwm accepts a layout
argument from user and then drives the window manager to lay windows in that
layout pattern. If the result looks funny, you should laugh.
wmwm is not a window manager but a manager of window manager. Since
not a window manager, you don’t have to replace your current window manager to
wmwm works with any X window manager that is
wmwm will layout all windows, excluding maximized and fullscreen ones, in the

wmwm to a keyboard shortcut. The binding method may
be WM-specific. Some notable examples are:

In a plain X window system, you can use
xbindkeysto configure keyboard shortcuts.
