View Full Version : [xfce] Right click to open XFCE menu - Xubuntu

Hi.... Have been away from Ubuntu for a while, but I'm back as of yesterday with Xubuntu.

This is my first time using Xubuntu, but not XFCE. As with a normal XFCE desktop install, everything is easily changed to the way I like it (the reason its my favourite Desktop) except for one thing. Right clicking on the desktop, doesn't bring up the usual XFCE menu, instead it brings up a menu for adding a launcher/create a folder/url link to the desktop, and a shortcut to the desktop preferences. Am using the same version of XFCE in Debian Lenny, and sidux, and the XFCE menu is there on right click!!

If anyone knows if this can be changed, or if I'm just missing a checkbox somewhere in the Settings Manager, I'd be eternally grateful, as this is one of my favourite features of XFCE...

Cheers.. :biggrin:
