Two questions


I'm currently running xfce on Zenwalk as my window manager and I want to do two things:

1. I want to use iceWM as my WM, but I can't figure out how to install it. After I unzip the .bz2 and run ./configure, make, and make install, I get some error message.

2. I want to use some applications from KDE, such as kdevelop and ksirtet; I don't want to use KDE as my WM. What is an easy way to install as little of it as possible to run KDE apps? Is there a "light" version somewhere? etc.

Thanks in advance.

1. We aren't mind readers, post some of the exact error messages or forget any hope of anyone helping. That's like saying "My car won't start, tell me why", have you seen the car? Do you know any of what's going on? No, and neither do we. Think before you post.

2. You don't have to use KDE to use KDE apps, you'll need kdelibs and kdebase installed and no there isn't an easily usable light version anywhere. If you want to use the apps then you'll need to install their deps.

I'm sorry; I'll try reinstalling it and tell you the error message.
