This chapter took a rather deep dive into Linux configuration focused on Easy Mode and its underlying window manager. If you are going to support extensions to Easy Mode, it provided the necessary instructions. If you're a fan of the IceWM window manager in general, it also provided instructions for removing the Eee PC customizations and using it in a more "default" look-and-feel.
If you wish to build custom icons for Easy Mode and find this difficult, check the various Eee PC forums and web sites and use Google to search for "easy mode editor." When this was written, the manual method of building icons described in this chapter provided the best quality icons. However, someone may have come up with an Easy Mode editor that does a good job with icons, and that will save you considerable effort.
