    [SOLVED] How install themes in Puppy Linux? No Themes in start menu


    I opened a "pup" file that saved the data to the ".icewm" folder's subfolder "themes" but I can't figure out how to choose that theme. there's no theme folder under the start menu and I restarted X windows and rebooted the computer and still nothing. How do i get it to see the new theme?

    I used PetGet to install icewm and still nothing!

    To anyone wondering, I figured it out!

    1. Open the text file "/etc/windowmanager".
    2. delete the line "jwm"
    3. insert line "icewm"
    (Do it without quotes)
    4. Save the file
    5. Restart X by going: menu->Shutdown->restart X windows

    And you'll have icewm!! (I have no idea why that was undocumented everywhere I looked and why it was necessary)
