    A configuration file is needed to launch wmdrawer. Its default name is .wmdrawerrc and it must be copied in your home directory. It's also possible to put this file in another directory and / or to use a different name but in this case, you must use the -c command line option.

    Here is an example configuration file which can be downloaded HERE:
    If wmDrawer's version is <= 0.9.5, you need to add a '&' character at the end of each command.
    If wmDrawer's version is <=, you should used the old syntax for lines of [column] sections which is:  image <SPACES and/or TABS> command


    To launch wmDrawer with the default configuration file ~/.wmdrawerrc
    $ wmdrawer

    To launch wmDrawer with a specific configuration file (useful if you want to launch several instances of wmDrawer)
    $ wmdrawer -c config_file [-n instance_name]

    To launch wmDrawer in windowed mode (useful for AfterStep, Fvwm, Sawfish or KDE users)
    $ wmdrawer -w

    To display the version of wmDrawer
    $ wmdrawer -v
