Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been playing around with our mwm screen. ( Suse 8.1) We are running a couple of applications that if you minimize them, the icon on the screen is just the little 4 squares in the frame. If I minimize the Mozilla browser window, the icon is a Netscape picture. The ICAClient ( Citrix) minimized is a little graphical ICA.
What I want to do, is personalize the icons for a couple of the apps running. First off I found a folder of bitmaps in /usr/X11R6/include/X11/bitmaps. I went into /home/user/.Xdefaults and added the following lines:
Now, every open window that is minimized has a bitmap pic of an elephant.
I found the line Mwm*my_application*iconImage:
and tried to set it but what would be considered " my_application " ? I have tried putting the executable names in here, app folder name, etc but have not been successful in finding what they want here. If I wanted to change the icon for say Mozilla, I would have thought I could put "mozilla" in there for my_application & be done with it but that doesn't work.
