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.

Unfortunately, debian forces me to chose between running ancient apps, or not getting security updates. IceWM 1.2.15 is the newest version I can install.
In deference to the documentation, there does not seem to be any ~/.icewm files or directories. There are only /etc/X11/icewm/ files.
I am trying to edit the toolbar file. Right now I am just trying to add vim. Here is what I have:
prog XTerm xterm x-terminal-emulator
prog vim vim vim vim
#prog "vim" /usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg /usr/bin/vim
#prog "vim" /usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg vim
#prog "vim" /usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg vim -f
prog "Mozilla Firefox" /usr/share/pixmaps/mozilla-firefox.xpm firefox
I am trying to follow the examples of xterm and firefox, since those work.
Q1: why does xterm have 4 parameters, while firefox has 3?
Q2: why does my active vim entry display the button, and the icon, but will not launce vim?
Q3: none of the commented out entries would launch vim either, why not?
Q4: what about the other buttons on the toolbar, why aren't they in toolbar file?
