    It would depend on which terminal you are using. Xterm, Gnome terminal, Konsole, Mrxvt, Urxvt, Rxvt, Aterm, Eterm... which is it?

    If it doesn't say which it is in the title bar, try looking at the menu entry for it to see what command is launching it. It's probably xterm if you haven't added any extra terms, but could be something else. Are you running IceWM on top of a Gnome or KDE install, or is IceWM the only X window manager on the machine?

    well i know iceWM is the ONLY window manager on the system...

    but as far as the title of the terminal window, it just says "terminal" ... and thats what it says on the menu too...

    i know that xterm is also on the menu but it looks worse so i havn't been using it...

    i will have to wait until tomorrow to check the menu entries that are contained in any kind of config file, as i am away from the computer...

    just in case... assuming its xterm how would i do it?

    No, I meant you could look at the menu entry for the terminal app in your actual IceWM configuration files found in your ~/.icewm/ directory. It should be in the "menu" file. If you have two different terms in your start menu, it's probaby something else like aterm, or eterm. Those are both quite popular.

    I think it would be easier to look at the menu entries, but you could also try running the "which" or "whereis" command to find out what terminals you have, using the terminal names mentioned above, such as:

    Code:
    whereis aterm
    Code:
    which eterm
