positioning xterm icon

: Help.  I want to start up a desktop application in an icon in a certain
: position on the screen and I can't quite figure out how.  For example:
: This puts it in the upper left corner when it should put it near the bottom
: of the screen, so it seems my window manager is not honoring this.  I'm
: using fvwm (as opposed to Openwin or CDEcch) on Solaris...any ideas?

        Look into your .fvwmrc settings. From what I recall, FVWM has the
ability to assign an area where icons get placed when minimized. If you
do not have a .fvwmrc in your home directory, copy the one from the
apps-default directory to your home directory and modify it.

Hope this helps.

1. Icons, Icon veiwer and Icon converter

Dear Newsgroup,

Looking for the following:

*  Sites and directories for icons that I can use in the toolbar when setting
    up new buttons in X
* An icon viewer for linux and I heard that you are able to get an icon
  converter from somewhere which allows you to convert icons from a Windows
  format *.ico to a format in X

Thank you to all.
