User Commands                                       xdmxconfig(1)

     xdmxconfig - a graphical configuration tool for Xdmx config-
     uration files

     /usr/bin/xdmxconfig [filename]

     xdmxconfig reads, edits, and writes configuration files  for
     the  Xdmx server.  The grammar for the configuration file is
     specified in the Xdmx(1) manual page.

     To start from scratch, create a "New Global" and specify the
     name and overall dimensions for the configuration.  Then use
     "New Display" to enter more displays.

     If there is more than one configuration,  the  configuration
     name button will bring up a selection menu.

     In  the  right-hand  pannel, the left mouse button will move
     the highlighted display at  "tool  resolution";  the  middle
     mouse  button  will move the highlighted display by a single
     pixel (at "wall resolution"); and  the  right  mouse  button
     will  bring up a menu allowing the highlighted display to be
     edited or deleted.  The arrow keys will also move the  high-
     lighted display by a single pixel.

     Currently,  entries  with the wall keyword are not editable,
     but will be preserved in the new output file.  The tool will
     quit  when  requested  by  the user, even if a configuration
     file has not been written out (i.e., without warning).   The
     menu interaction should be improved (menu entries that don't
     currently work should be greyed-out, for example).  The Help
     button does not work.
