    For IceWM, I set the background in a different way like this, ~/.icewm/preferences: DesktopBackgroundImage="/home/myfolder/backgrounds/fireice1.jpg" Then, I ran icewmbg -p to get it up immediately. Also, it needs to be started with exec...

    If you're just executing icewm your ~/.icewm/startup won't be executed; You'll need the IceWM session therefore: use icewm-session instead of icewm; T-Daemon example works. man icewm And: Tutorial might not help you. If it wasn't written...

    Does sysutils/nitrogen set a background when executed from a X terminal? One of my window mangers is x11-wm/icewm. I have set in ~/.icewm/setup graphics/feh to draw a background. Have a look at x11-wm/jwm, one of my other window manager I use...

    It's because the listed datasets are not part of the boot environment. Because if you switch between boot environments you don't want things like your home directories or mail folders going back in time along with the rest of the o/s. If you...

    My interpretation of that is, they get a lot of say. The one who is able to implement it, is the one who gets the say. It may not be the best say. I would put it like, why should their importance on the implementation be that heavy, rather than...

    They are entirely different shells, why would they be "the same"? One is a C Shell and the other is a Bourne compatible Almquist Shell. There are many different types of shell you can use. Users can change their shell to anything they like. I...

    See 3.9.1. Changing the Shell But whatever you do, never ever change roots shell.
  • D
    Yes, you're right. If you know what you do you can even change root's shell. But i believe it's better to tell people "Don't do it".

    tcsh is great for interactive use, it's not that good to write scripts with. For scripts you should really use sh.

    Then we really shouldn't be complaining about or questioning D-Bus at all. It's an upstream standard we do not control. helloSystem is our only hope away from this type of influence.

    Why is who implements it important? Named pipes is a Windows (and OS/2!) thing. I'm pretty sure no one here has advocated them as an alternative to Dbus. I'm also pretty sure they have nothing to do with sticks or rocks.
