IceWM is a window manager for the X Window System. The goal of IceWM is speed, simplicity, and not getting in the user’s way. It comes with a taskbar with pager, global and per-window keybindings and a dynamic menu system.

While IceWM 1.6 is available for Fedora 30+ and EL 8, this build has more sensible dependencies and theming.

Installation Instructions


sudo dnf copr enable stenstorp/icewm sudo dnf install icewm

  • If you have previously installed icewm from the official repositories, remove it and all related packages.
