Applying .patch files to IceWM?

I've found a patch for Icewm 1.2.30 that switches the numbered workspaces to window previews... from

But I have no idea how to apply it. Can someone help?

Try something like

cd /your/sources/dir/icewm-1.2.30
patch -p0 < /where/you/downloaded/icewm-1.2.30-aworkspaces-1.5.patch
and, of course,

man patch
Good luck!
