    Alt-F2


    Hello All,
    In KDE I got used to launching programs by typing Alt-F2 and then a program's name. I lack this functionality in IceWM. I'd be great if someone pointed to some replacement. If I had it I could easily bind it to a key combination.

    i may be wrong but try editing preferences to include a double height taskbar - that should get you something like a run command there.

    Thanks, but I think it very looks ugly. In the meantime, I found a little program called gmrun, that serves its purpose well.

    You also have xbindkeys that you can bind commands to keys at your keyboard. Very useful if you have a "internet keyboard".
