I've been playing with assembling a simple window environment with icewm for
some time. The results are here. It uses icewm, literki, litephone and a
simple launcher ( called litelaunch).

The basic features are:
- window are always full screen, no panels are wasting precious space
- three workspaces: for the phone app, for the launcher, for all other apps
- switching between windows within a workspace and closing them is done with
a finger gesture, similar to how you popup/hide literki
- switching between workspaces using a panel poped up from the top with a

You can install on top of any OE based distro. It's good to have the latest
frameworkd for Litephone.

Installation on SHR:
- Install Litephone. Go to [1] for the Qt dependencies and the latest
litephone package (r3).
- Go to [2]. Install the ipks.
- Copy the file Xsession to ~/.Xession (note the dot).
- Copy preferences, winoptions, prefoverride to ~/.icewm
- Move /etc/init.d/ophonekitd somewhere so it doesn't start

Now you can:
/etc/init.d/xserver-nodm restart

A lame tutorial video will come on youtube in a second.

If you want to switch back to standard SHR, rename or remove ~/.Xsession and
restore /etc/init.d/ophonekitd.


Have fun!
