- Install a script (executable!) called ~/.icewm/startup or ~/.icewm/shutdown
- Just copy anything from /usr/share/icewm or /etc/X11/icewm to ~/.icewm and modify it locally.
- You can use iceme to modify easily the menus (copy /etc/X11/icewm/keys to be able to edit the keybindings)
- You can use icepref to modify your preferences
- See the links above for tips & tricks
- it's easier to use xsetbg from xloadimage package
- do that from ~/.icewm/startup script
xsetbg -fullscreen <full path to jpeg image>
- one nice way is to use apwal (the author is French, comprendra qui pourra :-)
- No way to bind apwal to right-click under icewm, bind it to a a key combination instead
apt-get install gkrellmwireless gkrellm-x86info
You can launch it from ~/.icewm/startup with e.g.:
pgrep gkrellm >/dev/null || (gkrellm &)
You can copy it from /usr/share/icewm to ~/.icewm
To get gkrellm on all desktops but invisible on the taskbar:
gkrellm.Gkrellm.allWorkspaces: 1 gkrellm.Gkrellm.ignoreTaskBar: 1 #gkrellm.Gkrellm.layer: Below #gkrellm.Gkrellm.doNotCover: 1
To launch Firefox and Thunderbird on their own desktops:
Gecko.Firefox-bin.workspace: 4 Gecko.Iceweasel-bin.workspace: 4 Gecko.Thunderbird-bin.workspace: 5 Gecko.Icedove-bin.workspace: 5
Note that I have the following in my "preferences" file
WorkspaceNames=" 1 "," 2 "," 3 "," 4 ","Fx","Th"
and that workspaces are numbered from 0 so 4 for Fx and 5 for Th
To get jabber windows on all desktops: main.psi.allWorkspaces: 1 chat.psi.allWorkspaces: 1 psi.Psi.allWorkspaces: 1
But how to know how to refer to a specific window application?
Easy: run the following command and click on the applic to identify:
xprop | grep WM_CLASS | xmessage -file - -center
With Iceweasel which is at that time not yet migrated from Firefox, I get
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Gecko", "Firefox-bin"
So I use
