Hello, I installed icewm on Ubuntu, but it does not work.

IceWM worked perfectly on Ubuntu 9.10.

On Ubuntu 10.10, it does not work. Whenever I log in with icewm session the screen becomes entirely magenta and nothing happens.
On Ubuntu 11.04, whenever I log in with icewm session, the login screen is reloaded.

Why can not I use IceWM?
Thank you

EDIT:
When I try to log in with icewm session on Ubuntu 11.04, I get a black screen for a very short time with:

mountall: Failure in Plymouth command
mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth

I do not know what is Plymouth and what it means.

Well Icewm works for me in Maverick...but not in Natty. Reportedly Icewmbg crashes the x server. I dunno. Bugs have been filed but it seems they are not a priority, or maybe the problem is being worked on.

I can run Icewm itself from GDM, but then icewm doesn't run the startup file to run extra stuff.
