I'm running the gnome desktop manager, and trying to start icewm as my
window manager. I installed icewm, but it doesn't show up on my gdm menu.
Making the .xinitrc file specified above didn't seem to help either.
oes gdm's menu bypass it? Is there some other way?
I'm running a Debian woody wywtem.
