...thatś absolutely easy, but anyway SlimDesktop
is a general solution, an kind of "just works", intended for those willing to customize on a single step a freshly installed box. You have many ways to do it, if you want to learn how to customize each aspect of 4Dwm. You could in example install all the relevant packages (4Dwm Applications Default) from SlimDesktop
to an alternative path, and then just read the configuration files... but there is another one, which is: just use the search on Nekochan.Net, or on SGI TechPubs, since all the required info is just there.
Sadly, I don't have MIPS/IRIX boxes at the office anymore, and I don't think we'll see the next version
on a close timeframe... but if I buy some SGI box for cheap, I would put some more efforts there.
