    Brit Icons
    Buuf Duce
    DMZ Black
    DMZ White
    gtanglish
    Simple Grey


    In Start>Settings Themes I have I have a slew of themes Ozar. Too many to list Here is a few

    Asus Blue,Green,Silver,Sunset
    azenis
    blue-crystal
    elegance-ice
    ice-puma 2.2
    Lintherd Mac themes (assorted colors. what I prefer using lately. I customised start buttons on these)
    mira-icewm
    sfx-250 (a slick silver and red theme)
    TechnilogicalEnvy

    I have Icons in my Menus Including Quicklaunch. I Edit ~/icewm/toolbar to pretty much whatever I wish it to look like and do. Quick Hint. If wanting a larger toolbat. Stick a large Arch Icon .xpm in ~/.icewm/themes/(your prefered theme)/taskbar/icewm.xpm (make a backup of old icewm.xpm by renaming it)

    You do have a lot, roky.

    Is that lxappearance that you are referring to above? If so, I don't have it installed and probably won't, but I'll check out some of those icons anyway. Your taskbar looks really nice, btw.

    Do any of you happen to know if there is a system monitor for memory that matches the default system monitors for network and cpu usage?

    I always forget how long it takes to do all those little tweaks that you like to have in place with stand alone window managers. I try to keep good notes to help make things faster on future installs, but the notes do become dated after a few years.

    I found a patch for MEMStatusCommand that is supposed to match the CPU and Net Status, but it's about 9 years old so think I'm going to pass on it:

    [ icewm-Patches-487289 ] MEM Monitor in Taskbar - msg#00054 - window-managers.icewm.devel

    I might setup conky again, haven't decided for sure just yet.

    Thanks to all for the replies.

    Looks like I'm going to have to move away from pcmanfm. The latest version does not work correctly "out of the box" and now requires gvfs. When I went to install it, I discovered it requires a whole host of dependencies that it didn't need before so I'll forgo that. It's a shame. I really loved pcmanfm.

    I installed pacmanfm several different times trying to adjust to it, but ran into the same issues and wound up going back to rox-filer. It has it's own annoyances, but it doesn't have lots of dependencies. I also tried emelfm2 but couldn't figure out a way to configure it for single-click operation. Thunar has never felt right for me, so that one is out.


    Edit: Mixed feelings always come over me with desktop environments vs stand alone window managers. When using a DE, I start missing the lightweight feel and simplicity of a WM, and when using a WM, I start missing the polish and those other extras provided by a good DE.

    I've had similar thoughts about it. I guess it's kinda like choosing the lesser of two evils.

    I mentioned in an earlier post that I've always found it hard to come up with any IceWM themes that suit me, but then I stumbled onto IceClearlooks and liked it. Now, I'm using IceSimple and really like it a lot. Just one more nice find like those, and I'll be good to go on IceWM themes!

    Just in case though you probably know already. Figure this link should be in this thread any ways.

    Yeah, Roky... I've been using that site for a while now and that's where I found IceSimple. Maybe someone else will follow the link and find something they like there.

    Thanks for posting it!
