heh..........twm is a window manager, NOT a desktop environment...........when you configure X on LFS --twm is installed by default.......... you really should install something more productive........fluxbox, iceWM, etc......

Hi folks,

Tks for your advice. I found it out;

To sink a window as a label, better calling it in this term not as an icon - click the dot on the left top corner of the window to be sunk.

To enlarge/to get back to normal size - click the label again.

Ahh, you wanted to minimize a window.
Wish you'd said "minimize" not "sink". ...
