.SH SYNOPSIS

.SH DESCRIPTION
.I beryl-manager
is a tray application that allows you to launch beryl, start different window decorators, start a different window manager or launch beryl-settings to configure your beryl environment. Should beryl crash, the beryl-manager will try to launch a window manager to fall back to.

.SH BUGS
The running display manager and decorator detecting stuff only works if they are
running on same machine. Beryl Manager itself connects only once to a Systray, if the Systray gets destroyed, it will not appear in a new instance (But you can always invoke beryl-manager a 2nd time to get the Popupwindow).
