Using icewm, open ~/.icewm/preferences in a text editor and scroll down to this line:
WorkspaceNames=" 1 "," 2 "
To add a third workspace for example, edit the line like so:
WorkspaceNames=" 1 "," 2 "," 3 "

Hi, Al.

 

Thanks for that! In fact, since I posted that a couple of days ago, I've just literally ( in the last half-hour, in fact), found that there is a way to do just this via the GUI in Menu->Applications->System Tools->IceWMcc:-

Then you just select the number of workspaces you want via the slider:-

But it's not at all where you'd expect to find it! I felt sure it would be in the 'Control Centre'.....along with all the other desktop-related stuff, but no.....it's buried away in the depths of the system menu.  :scratchhead:  :rolleyes:

 

I'm glad I found it, though. I had a look at the 'Edit IceWM config' tool in the Control Centre.....which brings up a whole bunch of config files. Not my favourite kinda thing; I usually avoid such stuff like the plague, unless I absolutely don't have any other choice..!

 

Your reply is, however, very much appreciated. Cheers.  :thumbup2:  If I'm perfectly honest, I've yet to find any Linux distro which has everything which (to my mind at least) is logically-related all together in the same place. Pup's just as bad in some respects.....but it's 'horses for courses'; you just get used to things after a while.

 

Thanks.

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

I thought there might be a way to do it through the GUI. Hope you don't mind if I move your post to the other topic, in case anyone else is wondering the same. :)

No, no probs with that, Al; whatever you think best. Better to try and keep things consistent..!
