AntiX 7.5 WM question

I'm using AntiX 7.5 for my laptop. (Too cheap and too lazy to burn the latest, since this works fine as long as I don't update it). I can't seem to make IceWM my preferred WM. Anyone have the secret to this question that wouldn't mind sharing it with me? THX

Hope you find out as I am wondering same thing. I found that in Antix 8 the Control center has under Display section a Edit Login Options section that is not available in 7.5 I guess. From what I have gathered one needs to edit the .xinitrc (as root),from like (and I am guessing so take this with a grain of salt because I haven't tried it and I don't want to break your working install), from

exec startfluxbox


exec ice-wm session

But before trying this I would wait for someone else to confirm this. Good Luck.
