I am using icewm 1.3.6 which I have installed ok on a range of other
machines. I have not tried 1.3.7 yet (I am not currently near the
machine in question) but I don't see any relevant changes in the 1.3.7
I am trying to replace the gnome desktop on a Scientific Linux (which
is a RHEL clone) machine with icewm. This machine uses a mobile
broadband connection which is controlled via kppp and, prior to
connection, all kppp functions work correctly.
After a connection has been made, kppp places itself in the tray, but
only a tiny vertical line, a few pixels high and a couple or so pixels
across is displayed in the tray instead of the normal kppp control
icon. Furthermore, even this tiny line disappears after a icewm
restart while everything else is reloaded correctly.
The vendor supplied version of icewm (version 1.2.37) when using the
same icewm configuration files works perfectly. However, this version
was built without the gnome menu support and I wish to use the 1.3.x
series anyway for it's additional functionality.
BTW, using the ppp0 monitor in icewm is not a option because, among
other things, the kppp control icon gives you the ability to
disconnect the PPP session.
Does anyone have any ideas where to start looking ?
