NAME

 icewm-prefoverride - icewm override preferences configuration file

DESCRIPTION

Settings which override the settings from a theme. Some of the icewm configuration options from the preferences file which control the look-and-feel may be overridden by the theme, if the theme designer thinks this is desirable. However, this prefoverride file will again override this for a few specific options of your choosing. It is safe to leave this file empty initially.
