IceFx sound themes for IceWM

Back in 2000 I wrote icesound and icecursor as extensions to IceWM and for some years now they are included with IceWM.

You might be more interested in some tested and well balanced sound themes.

Themes include: Oktan, Robot, Warp, Alien and a Cursor Theme for IceWM.

Then, there are still some early versions and patches available.

Ed Hurst wrote a nice article on sound with IceWM in January 2004. It’s well worth browsing and a practical installation guide. (updated article)

Short instructions: Get a recent IceWM or patch with the attached diffs.

Configure. And enable GUI Events. ESounD will be enabled if detected.

./configure --enable-guievents

Build icewm with


or just the extra binaries

make guievents

copy some sound and cursors to ~/.icewm/sounds/ and ~/.icewm/cursors/

enjoy ./src/icesound and ./src/icecursor
