Configuring NoMachine to show or hide the window title bar of a custom application

A new node configuration key in the /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg file should allow administrators to define how the single application running in a NoMachine virtual desktop should be displayed: without window manager (default) or with the window manager. Running the window title bar can be useful in those cases in which the user needs to run more instances of the application inside the same virtual desktop container and needs to move/resize/maximize multiple application windows.

# Enable displaying the window manager when the single application
# is run in a custom session in virtual desktop mode.
# 1: Enabled. The Linux application is run with the window title
#    bar according to the window manager defined in the CommandWM
#    key.
# 0: Disabled. The single application doesn't have a window manager.
#    This is the default.
#EnableCustomWM 0

The window manager to be used is defined in the following new key in node.cfg:

# Specify path and name of the command to start the window manager
# to be used for custom sessions in virtual desktop mode.
#CommandWM ""

This key is populated at installation time according to the default window manager set on the system but can be modified to run an alternative window manager installed on the system.
