167
168 <para>Menu items are added by editing <filename>~/.fluxbox/menu</filename>.
169 The syntax is explained on the <command>fluxbox</command> man page.</para>
170
171 <para>If you want to use an image as your desktop background, copy the
172 theme you like into <filename class='directory'>~/.fluxbox</filename>.
173 Then add a line to make it use the correct image. In the following command,
174 change <replaceable>&lt;theme&gt;</replaceable> for the name of the theme you
175 want and change <replaceable>&lt;/path/to/nice/image.xpm&gt;</replaceable> to
176 point to the actual image you want to use.</para>

181
182 <para>In some locales the font specified in the theme may not contain the
183 needed characters. This results in menus with blank items. You can fix
184 this by editing <filename>~/.fluxbox/theme</filename> with a text editor
185 and altering it so that it names a suitable font.</para>
