1. to find where ur apps are located -
*if you know the exact name of the app (usually without the version numbers), you only have to type in:
"which app-name" , and you will get the path to it.
for instance, try 'which gcc", "which mozilla", "which icewm" ...
this is the path to the binary(executable).
*if you aren't sure of the path name (say, for some reason you dont ), then you can find the path to those objects approximately using the following two:
- locate file-name (but for this you have to run "updatedb' as root once)
- find / -name "file-name" (this will look for the file-name u specified starting from root. u can try it with any dir other than '/' if u know which dir to look under)
so, you can try "locate gcc", "locate mozilla" (after u had done an 'updatedb' as root)
and "find / -name "gcc"", "find / -name "mozilla""
thats that for finding stuff on ur machine.
now for ur window manager.
from my experience, whenever i installed a window manager, all, i had to do to see it in my list of options at startup (if i were using a graphical login), were to restart the current window manager (in ur case, kde).
now in case u rnt using a graphical login, then all u have to do would be to edit you ".xinitrc" file under ur home directory, and add a line that says "exec path-to-window-manager". in ur case the "path-to-window-manager" would be whatever "which icewm" gives u (or the others).
then after u edited it, do a startx, and u will be in ice.
hope that helped.
