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.
