    configuring openbox's menu


    Installed the latest openbox. Fbpanel works fine as does adesklets. But I just canít seem to change/configure the menu.

    Iíve copied /etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml to ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml and made changes to it. Nothing. Logged out and back in, nothing changed.

    So I changed the filename to zmenu.xml and edited ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml so that the menu file it should look for (in the <menu> section) is ~/.config/openbox/zmenu.xml but still nothing.

    Any ideas? Iíve had to return to fluxbox for now (which isnít such a terrible thing)

    Select "reconfigure" (it might be "reload" by default, IIRC) in the menu, while using Openbox.

    All sorted.

    Deleted ~/.config/openbox directory altogether and started again. This time it just seemed to work.

    Thanks for all your help anyway
