wmname sets the window manager name property of the root window
similar to how hostname(1) behaves. This is useful to fix
problems with JDK versions and other broken programs assuming a
reparenting window manager. The command wmname prints the window
manager name, if any. The command wmname <WM> sets the window manager
name, e.g. wmname LG3D. Java applications should then work with
Ratpoison, XMonad and other tiling WMs.
