im running fvwm as window manager. during the installation i've not selected kde at all. i don't want it because its too heavy. now i need to run a good desktop icon manager (because fvwm doesn't provide it) and i've found that the better is kdesktop. inside my .xinitrc i've written :

kdesktop
fvwm-themes-start

the problem is that if i want to run kdesktop,i should load inside the memory and on the disk at least the kde 3 light. but inside it there are a lot of things that i don't need. my idea is to run kdesktop without to load the whole kde light. is it possible ? how ?

As far as I know you cant - kde programs seem to rely on DCop servers etc.
