159 <para>
160 <application>Openbox</application>'s right click menu is used to launch
161 programs. The menu itself is configured with 2 files,
162 <filename>/etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml</filename> and
163 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename>. If
164 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> doesn't exist then
165 <application>Openbox</application> will copy
166 <filename>/etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml</filename> to
167 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> when it is launched.
168 </para>
169
170 <para>
171 <filename>~/.config/openbox/menu.xml</filename> can be edited with a
172 text editor or you can install
173 <ulink url="http://obmenu.sourceforge.net/">Obmenu</ulink> (requires
174 <xref linkend="python2"/>, <application>PyXML</application> and
175 <application>PyGTK</application>).
176 </para>
177
178 <para>
179 Many other aspects of <application>Openbox</application>'s behaviour are
180 configured with <filename>~/.config/openbox/rc.xml</filename> such as
181 what keybindings are used to launch programs or which mouse button
182 launches the main menu.
183 </para>
184
185 <para>
186 Details of the theme that <application>Openbox</application> applies to
187 window decorations are configured in
188 <filename>~/.config/openbox/rc.xml</filename>. You can get a list of the
189 available themes with the command:
190 </para>

206 Alternatively, use the <command>openbox-session</command> script to
207 launch <command>openbox</command>. It runs another script,
208 <filename>~/.config/openbox/autostart</filename> and if that doesn't
209 exist it runs <filename>/etc/xdg/openbox/autostart</filename>. You can
210 create <filename>~/.config/openbox/autostart</filename> and edit it to
211 start any other programs you want running during your
212 <application>Openbox</application> session (eg, a panel or Dbus).
