+Requirements and limitations
+Skippy-XD depends on:
+ * An X11R6 server
+ * Xft - the X Font library
+ * XRender, XComposite, XDamage and XFixes extensions
+ * A NETWM or GNOME WM Specs compliant window-manager.
+So far, it's been sucessfully tested using OpenBox-3.2, Fluxbox-0.9.9
+(thanks daelstorm!), XFWM4 (thanks SeeSchloss!), Metacity (thanks
+SmackleFunky!), WindowMaker (thanks SuperBFG7), IceWM (thanks Tomasz
+Torcz), PekWM (thanks Josh Chaney), Waimea (thanks Gad
+'make-up-your-mind' Kadosh) and KWin (no, BlackBox and ion aren't
+Note: if you want to use skippy with WindowMaker, make sure WindowMaker
+is compiled with gnome support.
+Another note: If you use KDE, Skippy might have trouble grabbing the F11
+key. You can make it bind to a different key in the config file (see the
+skippyrc-default file that's in the tarball). Scroll_Lock is reported to
+work (thanks Dmitriy!).
+Because of the way standard X11 works, Skippy has to raise all windows
+before it can take a snapshot. If there's something that obscures the
+window (like a window in a layer above it), Skippy won't be able to make
+a snapshot correctly.
+Skippy-XD uses the new XDamage, XComposite and XFixes extensions (found
+in's Xserver project) to provide you with 'live'
+versions of the windows. Exciting, isn't it?
+Skippy's pretty easy to use. Just compile (and optionally install) it,
+and press the hotkey (the default hotkey is F11). Then choose a window
+with either the keyboard (you can use up, down, left and right to
+navigate) or the mouse (just hover over a window) and activate it by
+pressing the left mouse button or the return or spacebar key.
+Hold Mod1 (aka the alt key) and skippy will only show the windows of the
+currently focused window's window group (like, all of gimp's windows, or
+all of kopete's windows). If Skippy-XD is compiled with Xinerama support
+and you have several heads, hold shift while pressing the hotkey to make
+it show the windows on all heads.
Oops, something went wrong.
