Desktop Menu

Postby Ours » Thu May 17, 2012 11:21 pm

Hi, sorry for my poor english, i'm just french.

i use Lxde on ubuntu,
i have Xfce installed too.
i use Compiz/emerald/Cairo-dock.

i have a problem with the right clic on desktop, i have only many things, but i search to change or add launcher,

on Thunar and cairo-dock, i use an application menu ( )

i can use that : ( )

but if i can add a launcher, il can use mygtkmenu.

it is possible to add a launcher on desktop right clic menu ?

The right-click-desktop menu is controled by Openbox. It is explained in, including how to include icons in the menu. In Lubuntu the relevant file is /etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml, and you may also want to edit
any menu.xml in /usr/share/..-lxde/openbox and .config/openbox .

i can't do that because i use compiz,

i want to change this desktop menu :

if i make that :

Right click any empty area of the desktop to bring up a menu which is useless to my way of thinking. All the items are useful but not in the context of the desktop per se. Click the one useful choice, labeled Desktop Preferences, to bring up another menu that offers a choice labeled Advanced. Click it to see a small box labeled Show menus provided by windows manager when (right) clicked. Check this box and close this session.

i don't have any desktop menu, because openbox can't work with compiz.
