Re: icewm and keys

Actually I had misdiagnosed.  I had an error in the keys file, missing double 
quotes.  icewm apparently reads key assignments and stops if it encounters an 
error; hence some work and some did not.

Why the debian list?  I guess because the machine I first noticed it on, a 
laptop, is running debian, and so is my server, and a second box.  These are 
recent installs and I have been lurking around the debian list seeking 
answers to some questions.  The machine from which I wrote the e-mail is 
running Mandriva, but debian is what I have been thinking for the last three 
weeks.  And, I will add, good distro as well as a good list.
