After my last update I'm no longer getting the Openbox menu when I right click on my desktop, but instead I'm getting the LXDE menu. During the update Openbox was upgraded to version 3.5.2-1.I tried going to desktop settings from the LXDE menu and tried both checking and unchecking the option to show menu provided by windows manager, but this hasn't helped.
I did a 'yum update' and now my applications menu in openbox won't work. I think they changed the directory of the applications.menu file to /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu instead of /usr/libexec/openbox-xdg-menu... but even when i link that in the menu.xml it comes up with this error
just installed the new alpha2. It looked so great from the live menu that I want to keep the default look. BUT! I have kept my old $HOME and hence all the themes etc.How can I restorer the design to the default?The files in./etc/skel/.config/openbox/menu.xmlare all emptyand ./etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xmlseems to be the bare openbox defaults.
For those people who like an auto generating menu within your openbox menu, this is a nice alternative to the Debian menu. Obam is an openbox pipe menu that creates an application menu from the .desktop files.
I'm just guessing here, trying to help.Looking at this line, <file>/var/lib/openbox/debian-menu.xml</file>it would suggest that you place the path to your menu file between the file tags.<file>$HOME/.config/openbox/my-menu</file>I would presume the format is the same .xml as found in the original menu.
This system uses slim as the DM and openbox WM with lxpanel. I recently did a pacman -Syu and now all items from within the menu in lxpanel have disappeared: just a blank box pops up when I click on the "start" button. How can I get the menu back?Other infos. I've done some snooping on-line for solutions, but nothing I've tried yet has resolved the issue.
Hello crunchbangersIve searched this forum, and only ever find "its a feature - not a bug" in regards to the question beginners to crunchbang ask when they cannot find there newly installed programs in the Openbox menu.So i was wondering from the viewpoint of someone who has never done any bash scripting, how hard would it be to create a script which automatically scanned the /usr/bin fo
In other distros (using gnome, xfce, etc), when a program is installed it is typically added automatically to the menu in an appropriate category. I know there are programs that will generate this menu for openbox, but is there say a pipe-menu that can do this automatically on the fly?
