IceWM problems


I'd like to find a way to load applications when IceWM starts, like nautilus and such. I'd assume there is a text file that can be edited for such a thing, but I don't know where it is, or what I would put in it.

Also, I can't seem to get GDM to make IceWM the default session. It used to prompt me at each change and login as to whether I wanted to make something the default (if it wasn't already), but it doesn't seem to do this anymore. Again, I'd assume there's a text file for such a thing, but I can't seem to spot it.

You can just add the programs to ~/.xinitrc. Here's mine for example:
#-----------------------------------------------------------
# .xinitrc
#-----------------------------------------------------------

# run initial programs
rox-desktop
setnumlock
/home/adam/.lineak/start

# start icewm, and run xterm if it crashes (just to be safe)
exec icewm-session || exec xterm -fg red

#-----------------------------------------------------------

Ok, I made a .xinitrc file, and it seems to work well, but I had to get rid of GDM. Now the only way to open X is to run startx. How do I make X run at boot?
