    IceWM issues


    I give up.. Time to ask for help. I've been fighting with this @#)(*& thing all afternoon and I STILL haven't figured it out.

    Background -- Was digging through all the logs last night and found I was getting a ton of errors when starting up. Seems all my playing and messing with things was beginning to catch up with me. Sooooooooooooooo, I bit the bullet and did a reinstall this morning, but left my /home partition alone.

    Everything loaded perfectly. No more errors on startup. However, when I changed over to IceWM, I could not get the settings to take on my account. Created a new account and it works perfectly.

    Steps taken to remedy the situation -- Removed all packages dealing with IceWM and then removed every last trace I could find on the system, including those in my /home partition. Reinstalled the IceWM packages.

    I STILL can't get IceWM to work properly with my account. Where else is this thing set at that prevents me from doing anything with it?

    Fixed it, although it wasn't in the way I wanted to. Went on a search and destroy mission and killed (with extreme prejudice I might add) anything and everything having to do with IceWM. Broke the installation and had to reinstall.
