icewm themes/programs


Problem # 1
okay i have untarred and whatnot the theme files i have downloaded and i have placed them in the appropriate folder according to the icewm manual (ie for my asuka theme its located at /usr/share/icewm/themes/asuka along with all the other pre-installed themes) however when i access the theme select menu asuka doesn't show up, what gives? any guesses?

Problem # 2
how do i go about adding programs to the program, or rather, any of the drop down menus located in the start menu (i dont know what its called so ill use the Windows term :P)

i really like icewm, its fast and sleek and i have an easier time with it than i did with fluxbox, any help would be greatly appreciated

I suggest you do download this program to edit your menus the gui way.

Did you install icewm from source or from an rpm package ?
If you compiled it from source (without specifying a prefix) , the themes directory will be located in /usr/local/share/icewm/themes.
Else, it will be on /usr/share/icewm/themes.

Or maybe somewhere else, depending on your distro. Mandrake hides it under /usr/lib/X11/icewm/
