If some has, please post.

Thanks in advance!

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

"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: [Select]
#DESKTOP=matchbox
#DESKTOP=rox

3) Go down near bottom of file, before the line "GCONF2_PID=`pidof gconfd-2`" insert
Code: [Select]
icewm-session 2>/dev/null >/dev/null
Save file, and enjoy.
