Obmenu won't start

Post#1 by rayyu » 29 Oct 2013, 06:43

So I'm trying to make Porteus LXDE slightly Crunchbang-ish (http://celettu.files.wordpress.com/2009 ... nglive.jpg) since LXDE uses Openbox as a WM. and to do that I need to install obconf and obmenu...obconf installed and ran fine, obmenu is installed and activated but not only does it not show up in the menu, it doesn't launch when I try running it using the alt-f2 shortcut

I'm wondering if anyone knows how to fix this, as I really want to edit the openbox menus :)

hi rayyu,
these topics may be of interest:
obmenu... how and from where did you install it? it has python dependencies which can be tricky..
try starting it from a terminal and post the output.
