Question No IceWM after install of KDE 3.2.2


Hello, I'm currently running Suse Linux 9.0 and KDE 3.2.2 on my computer. For whatever reason, when I upgraded to the latest version of KDE, my IceWM disappeared from the Window Decorations section in the KDE Control Panel, and I lost the theme that I was using.

I found IceWM's official website, and downloaded it, but apparently it can only be installed on Red Hat, and there are a HUGE list of dependencies when I run Yast with it.

Why do I not have IceWM anymore? Please reply if you have any idea as to how to solve this.

Thank you!

When you log in you can't change KDE to IceWM? And icewm is on the install CD's and suses ftp site...get it from there not the icewm site.

Alright, I re-installed IceWM into my Linux, and now I see it under Session Type before I log in. However, in the KDE Control Panel under Window Decorations, I still do not see IceWM as one of the options.

How can I make IceWM show up in the list of the Window Decorations panel?

Well, after getting extremely frustrated from Suse Linux 9.0 (partially because the Free Download version does not come with Make or GCC) I came to the conclusion that I needed a new distro, so I switched over to Mandrake 10.0 Community.

I now have IceWM again in the Window Decorations panel, so this question is over.
