Our emails crossed!
I have both IceWM _and_ idesk running correctly. \0/
Just out of interest, and because it would obviously be easy to reverse, I
uncommented startx in .bash_profile. I then rebooted.
And I have a fully operational system, but for that error message, so
something is still not right - but hey, the presenting problem has been
solved. So if you want to breathe a sigh of relief and bring the shutters
down, I shall still be greatly indebted to you.
But if you have the stamina, and enough of the will to live, I would love to
sort it out properly.
