I see the issue, I think. Only use sudo when you "need" root permissions. Example would be apt-get or making changes to the underlying system itself. Most everything else can and should be done from your user account. For copying the .icewm directory to your users home directory just do it as a normal user.

You might need cp -r. I'm so use to mc doing all the work for me I've forgotten basic commands. Lol

Cheers

aha!!
did that ..and got a big clue:
'..cannot overwrite non-directory `/home/fred/.icewm' with directory `.icewm'"

deleted the non-directory..
..and it copied - no error messages.

So easy to forget ..bit like me forgetting the -a for ls ..and wondering where (hidden) files are??

For those using ubuntu12remix (or ubuntu14 / debian 8) i have built SpiderWeb 2.2.1 and InterWeb 20200220 web browsers for it. Both packaged as .deb for easy installation. Linked on 1st post just under the ubuntu12remix section. Enjoy.

Edit: They will also run on ubuntu16 and debian 10 if you can't find the links to those versions. Hint: It's in my signature. ;)
