    If it's helpful here is my /etc/rc.conf

    Code:

    # LOCALE: available languages can be listed with the 'locale -a' command
    # HARDWARECLOCK: set to "UTC" or "localtime", any other value will result
    #   in the hardware clock being left untouched (useful for virtualization)
    # TIMEZONE: timezones are found in /usr/share/zoneinfo
    # KEYMAP: keymaps are found in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps
    # CONSOLEFONT: found in /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts (only needed for non-US)

    Remember, things in the menu are not necessarily installed on your system. The openbox menu is just a list of names and commands. If that command doesn't do anything, ie, the program isn't installed, then clicking on the menu entry will do nothing.
