How can I customize my .zwgc.desc?

You can control the look of the windowgrams you receive by creating a file called ".zwgc.desc". You can copy the default .zwgc.desc file into your directory by doing:

	cp  /usr/athena/share/zephyr/zwgc.desc  ~/.zwgc.desc

You then need to change the permissions on this file so that you can edit it by typing:

	chmod  u+w  ~/.zwgc.desc

(You can find out more about the chmod command by typing: man chmod) You may then modify your .zwgc.desc as you wish. There are samples of certain modifications (saving all windowgrams to a file, filtering out certain instances, etc.) available, in the zephyr locker

	attach  zephyr
	cd  /mit/zephyr/attic/examples

You can make the changes take effect immediately by typing:

	zctl  wg_read

There are also some examples in the dotfiles locker. To get to those, do:

	attach  dotfiles	
	cd  /mit/dotfiles/Zwgc.desc

Then follow the same steps above for viewing these files.
