Question IceWM: Different Display settings for different users


I have a Debian machine running IceWM. I want to set it up so when userA signs in they get a screen resolution of 1280x1024 and normal size icons and normal size cursors. Then I want it setup so if UserB signs in they get a screen resolution of 800x600 larger icons and larger mouse cursor icons.

how can I customize the display settings per user with IceWM? I did not see where I can set these options in ~/.icewm/preferences.

AFAIK cursors are a part of the theme (XPM files), icon sizes you can define there, but screen resolution is something you define in the X11 or Xorg configuration, not in any ~/.icewm/ preferences file.

You could have the users .xsession script call xrandr to set the resolution before starting the window manager.
