NAME

 icewm-prefoverride - override themable preferences file

SYNOPSIS

 $ICEWM_PRIVCFG/prefoverride
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/icewm/prefoverride
 $HOME/.icewm/prefoverride

DESCRIPTION

Settings that override the settings from a theme.  Some of the icewm preferences that control the look may be set by the theme. However, the settings in this prefoverride file override that. It is safe to leave this file empty initially. Note that this file is meant for themable preferences and a few icewm startup settings cannot be set here, like Splash.
