LATEST NEWS [4/29/2005]: These pages have just moved to a NEW SERVER. The site might be under construction for some time.
LATEST NEWS [8/18/2004]: IceWMCP version 3.2 is now available. This release patches bugs that many users of Python 2.3 experienced. Support has been added for the latest features of IceWM 1.2.14 / 1.2.15. A French translation has been added, and the Russian translation has been updated. The IceMe menu editor now saves non-English characters in the menu file correctly. A big THANK YOU to the following people: French Translation Added By - Yves Perraudin (yploglib ['at'] free.fr), Régis Décamps (decamps ['at'] users.sf.net), and Simon Gauthier (joy3k ['at'] hotmail.com). Russian Translation Updates By - Vasya a.k.a Vasiliy Leushin (basileus ['at'] newmail.ru). Thank you all for your hard work and patience with me. :-) DOWNLOAD List of New Features

If you downloaded any of my RPM packages (usually with file names ending in 'noarch.rpm'), you can install them the same way as any other RPM package, by executing 'rpm -ivh [rpm_file_name]'. If you already have an older version of one of my packages installed on your system, you can install the newer package with the command 'rpm -Uvh [rpm_file_name]'. NOTE: If you get error messages about not having 'icewm', 'python', or 'pygtk' installed on your system and you are SURE that you have them all properly installed, try installing the RPM using the command 'rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps [rpm_file_name]'. (This is a minor problem that occurs from time to time due to the fact that my system may name the dependency 'icewm', while your system may name it 'IceWM', etc. If you are certain you have all of the required software packages properly installed, it's not a real problem.) Alternatively, you may install RPM packages with a GUI utility such as KPackage, GnoRPM, or XRPM. After installing IceWMControlPanel, you should be able to run the program by executing '/usr/X11R6/bin/IceWMCP'. The full IceWMControlPanel-[version].noarch.rpm package should contain the following executables:
In addition, if you've installed the IceWMCP-System plug-in, the executable for the plug-in will be named '/usr/X11R6/bin/IceWMCP-System'.
As of version 0.2 of IceWM Control Panel, tarball (.tar.bz2) packages include a new installation method based around PyInstallShield. After downloading a tarball package, extract the package to a directory of your choice, with the command 'tar -xjf [tar_ball_file_name]' or 'tar -xIf [tar_ball_file_name]'. You can also use a GUI utility such as GnoZip or File-Roller to extract the tarball. After you have extracted all files from your downloaded tarball, install the application by running either 'PyInstallShield' or 'INSTALL-ME.sh' in the directory you extracted the files to. That's it!. A nice GUI will start, guiding you through the rest of the installation. Follow the simple instructions in PyInstallShield and you're on your way. NOTE: NO support is provided for people installing from 'tarball' packages, as I code for well-known, RPM-capable Linux versions such as Mandrake, RedHat, and Suse, so I cannot provide tech support to every single person using obscure or irregular Unix systems. Also, adding PyInstallShield will be my LAST attempt to make tarballs that are 'cross-platform', as I really don't have time to try and code and package for every single obscure Linux/Unix system in the universe, when the 'mv' and 'cp' commands ALSO put the files where you want them. After installing IceWMControlPanel, you should be able to run the program by executing 'IceWMCP'. The software is FREE, so stop whining! The full IceWMControlPanel-[version].tar.bz2 package should create the following executables in the executable path you have selected AFTER you have run 'PyInstallShield':
In addition, if you've installed the IceWMCP-System plug-in, the executable for the plug-in will be named 'IceWMCP-System'.
Static Binary Packages:
Static binary packages are now in .tar.bz2 file format. After downloading a tarball package, extract the package to a directory of your choice, with the command 'tar -xjf [tar_ball_file_name]' or 'tar -xIf [tar_ball_file_name]'. You can also use a GUI utility such as GnoZip or File-Roller to extract the tarball. You may then run the application immediately by executing the 'icewmcp' executable in that directory.
