NAME

icewm - lightweight X11 window manager

SYNOPSIS

icewm-lite [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

IceWM is a lightweight window manager for the X11 window system. It aims to be small, fast and familiar to new users.

The *-lite versions of all icewm executables are symbolic links existing for legacy compatibility reasons. The major difference is slightly changed behavior, i.e. icewm-lite attempts to mimic the look and feel of the previously existing icewm builds which had reduced functionality and were more suitable for some "kiosk mode" applications. This actually includes the options: ShowTaskBar, PreferFreetypeFonts, ShowWindowList and QuickSwitchAllIcons.

These and all other options can be changed and have their normal meaning, see regular icewm documentation for details.
