Hello,
I found it imposible to manually change the background. Has anyone made ipk of http://xvadmin.iclubhouse.org/ or any other icewm configuration?

If some has, please post.

Thanks in advance! smile.gif

The default icewm setup from the feed runs either the Rox desktop or Matchbox desktop, so you would have to edit the config for those.

I didn't like either of them so I edited /usr/bin/icewmsession to run /usr/bin/icewm-session. This will automatically run /usr/bin/icewmbg, which manages the desktop/background for icewm. Now you can edit ~/.icewm/preferences to set the background image.

-I don't think xsetroot command works with icewm sad.gif

"I didn't like either of them so I edited /usr/bin/icewmsession to run /usr/bin/icewm-session. This will automatically run /usr/bin/icewmbg, which manages the desktop/background for icewm. Now you can edit ~/.icewm/preferences to set the background image."

-desertrat, can you please specify what exactly you edited? I don't understand these scripts, so please try to explain so I could understand.


Thank in advance everyone!

1) Open up
QUOTE
/usr/bin/icewmsession


2) Near the top of the file, comment out both the "DESKTOP=..." lines so it looks like:
CODE
#DESKTOP=matchbox
#DESKTOP=rox


3) Go down near bottom of file, before the line "GCONF2_PID=`pidof gconfd-2`" insert
CODE
icewm-session 2>/dev/null >/dev/null


Save file, and enjoy.
