       icewm - a small and fast window manager


       icewm [-display DISPLAY] [-c CONFIG] [-n] [-debug]

       icewm-session, icewmwb, icewmtray, icewmhint, icehelp, icesound-experimental (experimental
       flavor only) and icewm-menu-gnome2 (gnome support package)


       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 provided 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.

       -c CONFIG
              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 installed.
