Actually, the base.##bpp set paths for Icon files, so you don't need
to touch those unless you want to use non-standard icons. The Pager
config file is called "pager". Tell your users to copy the system
/usr/X11R6/share/afterstep/pager to ~/G/L/A/ and edit it--the syntax
is self-explanatory, then to kill and restart the Pager from the
"Modules" menu.
