188 <para>
189 <application>Openbox</application>'s right click menu can be used to
190 launch programs. The menu itself is configured with 2 files,
191 <filename>/etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml</filename> and
192 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename>. To make changes to the
193 menu, copy /etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml to ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml and
194 edit it:

198 <para>
199
200 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> can be edited with a
201 text editor or you can install
202 <ulink url="http://obmenu.sourceforge.net/">Obmenu</ulink> (requires
203 <ulink url="http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/topics/">pyxml</ulink>
204 and <xref linkend="pygtk"/>).
205 </para>
206
207 <para>
208 To have icons in your right click menu requires installing
209 <xref linkend="imlib2"/> before you install
210 <application>Openbox</application>. To set an icon for an entry in the
211 menu edit <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> and add an
212 icon to the &lt;item&gt; tag like this:
213 </para>
214
215<screen>&lt;item label="Mplayer" icon="/usr/share/pixmaps/mplayer.png"&gt;</screen>
216
217 <para>
218 Many other aspects of <application>Openbox</application>'s behaviour are
219 configured with <filename>~/.config/openbox/rc.xml</filename> such as
220 what keybindings are used to launch programs or which mouse button
221 launches the main menu.
222 </para>
223
224 <para>
225 Details of the theme that <application>Openbox</application> applies to
226 window decorations are configured in
227 <filename>~/.config/openbox/rc.xml</filename>. You can get a list of the
228 available themes with the command:

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

249
250<screen role="nodump"><userinput>cat &gt; ~/.xinitrc &lt;&lt; "EOF"

254
255 <para>
256 Or if you like a bit of variety, put a selection of images in a folder
257 (in this example, the directory ~/.config/backgrounds) and choose one at
258 random each time you <command>xinit</command>:
259 </para>
