I've been reading the forums, RTFM'ing and looking at files on my Zaurus all morning, but this has me stumped - and it's one of those really dumb issues that drives me nuts!

I came back home to pdaxii13 on my 3200 a few days ago, and then upgraded to pdaxiiv2. Everything is fine, I've gotten all the software I wanted installed and running, but could I leave well enough alone? NOOO!

I'm using icewm and really like it. I started looking at Themes (from the main menu) and changed to icedesert just to see what it looked like. When icewm started up again, the Start menu (the "X" in the lower left corner) was gone. I can still bring up the menu using the Menu key, but I'd really like to have the icon back.

After horsing around for a couple of hours, I dropped out of X and removed/installed icewm. Nothing has changed. Oh, the icewm menu editor complains it can't open /home/root/.icewm/keys and /home/root/.icewm/menu. That hasn't changed either - it was complaining before the reinstall.

I'm stumped at this point and would welcome any help I can get.

Walt

Maybe the icon is missing? It may also have been removed somehow from the config file (I think one exists).

I sometimes get similiar behaviour by chaning theme in icewm - the start button disappears (or perhaps it is off the left of the screen)?
Changing theme sometimes/often corrects it - and the menu is always available via alt-click.
Perhaps some themes are missing an icon? I might take a look.

good luck.

yeah, it is missing. I replaced the default icewm start button with the pdaXrom X start button, but only in the default pdaXii13 custom theme for icewm. Other themes won't have that button. you could just symlink it to the other themes...
