Window Managers IceWM is a lightweight window manager for UNIX-like systems. Although widely used, it is often underrated - there is hardly any IceWM-related content on the Internet. This article is my attempt to share my experiences as a longtime IceWM user. It contains tips and tricks, usage scenarios, and makes use of examples whenever possible to better demonstrate IceWM's features and capabilities. Finally, the article is meant for those with some familiarity with UNIX, but who are new to IceWM.

Icewm and rox --pinboard
by theARE on Fri 23rd Jul 2004 08:30 UTC

I use Icewm on and off. I use rox to get desktop icons - just run it in pinboard mode, for filemanager i also use xfe.

Icewm really is a nice desktop, it's simple, fast and yet powerfull and it's easy to go in and fiddle with images to adapt a theme to your liking.

Its a nice change from KDE from time to time, but kde is still what i normally use.
