icewm a small and fast window manager

This manual page documents briefly the IceWM window manager and programs around it. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but
may be used by others), because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in HTML format; see below.

The goal of IceWM is to provide a small, fast and familiar window manager for the X11 window system. Compatibility with the mwm window manager is desired and
will be implemented where appropriate.

Because of the high number of features (some of them unstable/experimental or designed for more computer performance), the icewm package in Debian is pro Äê
vided in different variants (flavors): the default one, experimental, lite. There is also the gnome flavor provided for historical reason but it uses the
same programs as the default flavor. To run an application which belongs to a different flavor, complete the program name with the flavor name, eg. resulting
in icewmtray experimental.

Most users use IceWM either as their primary Window Manager or embedded as part of another X session manager, eg. GNOME. For the first task, please run
icewm session or one of its variants, adding a command like "exec icewm session experimental" to your ~/.xsession file. icewm session will invoke all needed
programs like icewmbg (background configurator) and icewmtray. See the IceWM manual for details.

For the second task, choose IceWM in the configuration of your Desktop Environment, eg. in the Gnome Command Center.

The programs icewm menu gnome1 and icewm menu gnome2 are provided by the icewm gnome support package. They collect available menu data of GNOME menues and
pass it to IceWM. icewm menu gnome1 supports Gnome 1, icewm menu gnome2 supports Gnome 2 and KDE menues. See the default menu file /etc/X11/icewm/menu for
examples and IceWM manual for further information about them.

Sound event support is highly experimental and available in the experimental flavor only.

icewm knows following options:

display DISPLAY
Set X display to DISPLAY.

Use configuration file CONFIG.

n Don't use a configuration file.

debug Dump various debug information to stderr.

The original documentation can be found in /usr/share/doc/icewm common/ in HTML and SGML format, or it can be accessed through the dwww system if it is
