Post Window Manager Switching in Puppy Linux

I run Puppy Linux 4 on an older computer. I like having access to as many customization options as possible, so I like how Puppy supports multiple Window Managers. I'm trying to write a script to switch WMs by clicking a button. However, I can't seem to find a command to switch them that works outside the main prompt. The true prompt will start them with "xwin icewm", "xwin jwm", etc, but that won't work on a terminal or a script. IceWM has the mini-windows command in it's menu, but that doesn't work in any of the other program menus or a script or a terminal, either. What should I use?


icewm, linux, managers, puppy, window
