[switchdesk] Installing new window manager

Howdy --
Redhat/Redora question for you'll:

How do I add a news widnows manager to switchdesk.
I've got it to appear under sessions at log in, but not the desktop-switcher
in Gnome it self.

Hi David

Out of interest, I installed icewm as per your instructions and everything
worked fine including adding the gdm Sessions entry. Except there is no
entry within deskswitch for ICEWM. Should the installation have added an
entry for it, or must I manually add it; and if so how?

Thank you
