Table 3.1. metacity keys

KeyTypeDefaultDescription
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/mouse_button_modifierstring<Alt> Clicking a window while holding down this modifier key will move the window (left click), resize the window (middle click), or show the window menu (right click). Modifier is expressed as "<Alt>" or "<Super>" for example.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/button_layoutstringmenu:minimize,maximize,close Arrangement of buttons on the titlebar. The value should be a string, such as "menu:minimize,maximize,close"; the colon separates the left corner of the window from the right corner, and the button names are comma-separated. Duplicate buttons are not allowed. Unknown button names are silently ignored so that buttons can be added in future metacity versions without breaking older versions.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/focus_modestringclick The window focus mode indicates how windows are activated. It has three possible values; "click" means windows must be clicked in order to focus them, "sloppy" means windows are focused when the mouse enters the window, and "mouse" means windows are focused when the mouse enters the window and unfocused when the mouse leaves the window.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/focus_new_windowsstringsmart This option provides additional control over how newly created windows get focus. It has two possible values; "smart" applies the user's normal focus mode, and "strict" results in windows started from a terminal not being given focus.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/raise_on_clickbooltrue Many actions (e.g. clicking in the client area, moving or resizing the window) normally raise the window as a side-effect. Set this option to false to decouple raising from other user actions. Even when this option is false, windows can still be raised by an alt-left-click anywhere on the window, a normal click on the window decorations, or by special messages, such as activation requests from pagers. This option is currently disabled in click-to-focus mode.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/action_double_click_titlebarstringtoggle_maximize This option determines the effects of double-clicking on the title bar. Current valid options are 'toggle_shade', which will shade/unshade the window, 'toggle_maximize' which will maximize/unmaximize the window, 'minimize' which will minimize the window, and 'none' which will not do anything.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/auto_raiseboolfalse If set to true, and the focus mode is either "sloppy" or "mouse" then the focused window will be automatically raised after a delay specified by the auto_raise_delay key. This is not related to clicking on a window to raise it, nor to entering a window during drag-and-drop.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/auto_raise_delayint500 The time delay before raising a window if auto_raise is set to true. The delay is given in thousandths of a second.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/themestringClearlooks The theme determines the appearance of window borders, titlebar, and so forth.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/titlebar_uses_system_fontboolfalse If true, ignore the titlebar_font option, and use the standard application font for window titles.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/titlebar_fontstringSans Bold 10 A font description string describing a font for window titlebars. The size from the description will only be used if the titlebar_font_size option is set to 0. Also, this option is disabled if the titlebar_uses_desktop_font option is set to true.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/num_workspacesint4 Number of workspaces. Must be more than zero, and has a fixed maximum to prevent making the desktop unusable by accidentally asking for too many workspaces.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/visual_bellboolfalse Turns on a visual indication when an application or the system issues a 'bell' or 'beep'; useful for the hard-of-hearing and for use in noisy environments.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/audible_bellbooltrue Determines whether applications or the system can generate audible 'beeps'; may be used in conjunction with 'visual bell' to allow silent 'beeps'.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/visual_bell_typestringfullscreen Tells Metacity how to implement the visual indication that the system bell or another application 'bell' indicator has been rung. Currently there are two valid values, "fullscreen", which causes a fullscreen white-black flash, and "frame_flash" which causes the titlebar of the application which sent the bell signal to flash. If the application which sent the bell is unknown (as is usually the case for the default "system beep"), the currently focused window's titlebar is flashed.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/compositing_managerboolfalse Determines whether Metacity is a compositing manager.
/schemas/apps/metacity/workspace_names/namestring  The name of a workspace.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/reduced_resourcesboolfalse If true, metacity will give the user less feedback by using wireframes, avoiding animations, or other means. This is a significant reduction in usability for many users, but may allow legacy applications to continue working, and may also be a useful tradeoff for terminal servers. However, the wireframe feature is disabled when accessibility is on.

/schemas/apps/metacity/general/application_basedboolfalse If true, then Metacity works in terms of applications rather than windows. The concept is a bit abstract, but in general an application-based setup is more like the Mac and less like Windows. When you focus a window in application-based mode, all the windows in the application will be raised. Also, in application-based mode, focus clicks are not passed through to windows in other applications. Application-based mode is, however, largely unimplemented at the moment.
/schemas/apps/metacity/general/disable_workaroundsboolfalse Some applications disregard specifications in ways that result in window manager misfeatures. This option puts Metacity in a rigorously correct mode, which gives a more consistent user interface, provided one does not need to run any misbehaving applications.
