Description Martin Tarenskeen 2007-09-13 03:30:11 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

When I switch between (for example) from GNONE to ICEWM the background picture
that I have set in ~/.icewn/preferences will not be displayed - /usr/bin/icewmbg  
is not run automatically.

How reproducible:

How to fix:
I think the files Xclients.icewm and backend.py should be changed so that icewm
will be started using /usr/bin/icewm-session instead of /usr/bin/icewm.
I did this on my system, and it fixed above problems.
