    IceWM on FC2


    I'm trying to get IceWM to be my default session (instead of Gnome). However, FC2 seems to ignore my .xinitrc, .xClient, and .xsession 's that I put in ~/ . Where (and how) do I set IceWM as my default?

    I've got IceWM to work in FC1, though maybe not the propper way, but I 'hacked' some files, but I you only need to change ~/.Xclients-default here is mine:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # (c) 2000 Red Hat, Inc.
    
    /usr/local/bin/icewm-session
    exec /usr/local/bin/icewm
    #exec /usr/bin/wmaker

    I had a problem similar to that on my upgrade of FC1 to FC2... No matter which UID I couldn't make Desktop Switcher work. So I renamed ".XClient" to Xclient.old and was able to boot the other WM...
