Window manger corrupted because of icewm
 
Hi all,

I am using Redhat Linux-2.16.9-11 EL machine. Everything was fine till today morning, I tried to check what is icewm and i installed it. Now i am unable to minimize or maximize and so many other graphical related things are not working only in my user account.
All other users window manager is working fine...

Please help me out How i can start my default window manager..

Thanks and Regards,
Naveen.

What is your "default window manager"?

open the .xinitrc (it's empty) and edit it:

$ nano .xinitrc

leave it looking like this:

#!/bin/sh
icewm

save and exit from your editor

$ startx <Enter>

this will make icewm your default wm, i don't understand the rest of your posting.
