180 <para>
181 <application>Openbox</application>'s right click menu can be used to
182 launch programs. The menu itself is configured with 2 files,
183 <filename>/etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml</filename> and
184 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename>. To make changes to the
185 menu, copy /etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml to ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml and
186 edit it:
187 </para>
188
189<screen role="user"><userinput>cp -rf /etc/xdg/openbox ~/.config</userinput></screen>
190 <para>
191
192 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> can be edited with a
193 text editor or you can install
194 <ulink url="http://obmenu.sourceforge.net/">Obmenu</ulink> (requires
195 <ulink url="http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/topics/">pyxml</ulink>
196 and <xref linkend="pygtk"/>).
197 </para>
198
199 <para>
200 To have icons in your right click menu requires installing
201 <xref linkend="imlib2"/> before you install
202 <application>Openbox</application>. To set an icon for an entry in the
203 menu edit <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> and add an
204 icon to the &lt;item&gt; tag like this:
205 </para>
206
207<screen>&lt;item label="Mplayer" icon="/usr/share/pixmaps/mplayer.png"&gt;</screen>
208
209 <para>
210 Many other aspects of <application>Openbox</application>'s behaviour are
211 configured with <filename>~/.config/openbox/rc.xml</filename> such as
212 what keybindings are used to launch programs or which mouse button
213 launches the main menu.
214 </para>
215
216 <para>
217 Details of the theme that <application>Openbox</application> applies to
218 window decorations are configured in
219 <filename>~/.config/openbox/rc.xml</filename>. You can get a list of the
220 available themes with the command:
221 </para>

237 If you want to set a background image to your desktop you can use
238 <xref linkend="display"/> and launch it from ~/.xinitrc just before
239 openbox:

241
242<screen role="user"><userinput>cat &gt; ~/.xinitrc &lt;&lt; "EOF"

246
247 <para>
248 Or if you like a bit of variety, put a selection of images in a folder
249 (in this example, the directory ~/.config/backgrounds) and choose one at
250 random each time you <command>xinit</command>:
251 </para>
252
253<screen role="user"><userinput>cat &gt; ~/.xinitrc &lt;&lt; "EOF"
254<literal># make an array which lists the pictures:

266 <ulink url="http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/n/numlockx/numlockx_1.2.orig.tar.gz">Numlockx</ulink> and
