But before anything else, I really need to say Thanks, Dan! This is great stuff you gave me.
Makin' some progress here. But I don't know exactly which setting controls my Screen Resolution. I tried a couple of options (even some that I didn't know what the heck they were). Mainly I would like to have a font that I don't have to squint at, and maybe get my background picture to not look like a blob of... whatever this is
Got the Screen resolution hammered down. Still trying to fix the background picture.
If you look in .icewm/preferences, you will see this line near the bottom:
# Desktop background scaled to full screen DesktopBackgroundScaled=0 # 0/1
Here's a portion of what I have in my menu under "Utilities." This is just an easy way fro me to make desktop changes...
prog Menu menu konsole --noclose -e joe .icewm/menu prog Preferences pref kate .icewm/preferences prog Toolbar tb konsole --noclose -e joe .icewm/toolbar prog Desktop icewmbg /usr/local/bin/icewmbg
prog Menu menu gedit .icewm/menu prog Preferences pref gedit .icewm/preferences prog Toolbar toolbar gedit .icewm/toolbar prog Desktop icewmbg icewmbg
I can't wait to see how your desktop looks when you're finished with it! Be sure and post a screenshot for us.
EDIT: There are also utilities you can use to edit your IceWM desktop. I've tried most of them and the results vary. You might want to try them. More on those:
To me though, it's just so easy to edit the configuration files, I don't bother with any of them.
I'll go ahead and mark this one as solved. Thanks again, Dan! You're help was very much appreciated. Now I got a problem with screen resolution. It went to a huge font after I logged out and back in. But there are several threads available to help me on this, so I'll utilize those.
