    Question tint2, wicd and openbox menu configuration

    Hi everyone! first post in ubuntu forum :)

    I've used Arch Linux for a couple of years, and now wanted to try lubuntu because i wanted something that "just works out of the box" but to have certain balance between heavyless apps and pleasing usability, so i installed Lubuntu and i really love it...

    I wanted to use the default window manager and everything it has preconfigured, but i want to use tint2 as the bottom bar and wicd as network manager application.

    So i'll describe what i did and you tell if it's the correct way...

    First, i installed both applications with synaptic. Tint2 and wicd-gtk

    Second, i edited /etc/xdg/lxsession/lubuntu/autostart
    -commented "@lxpanel --profile lubuntu" with "#" and added
    -added "@tint2"
    -added "@volumeicon"

    Now i have two problems... first, network-manager is still active, so i have both wicd-gtk and network-manager in the tint2 tray... and second, the applications menu (with right-click on the desktop) shows very few applications on it, what's the correct way to populate it with all the applications i installed with synaptic?

    Thanks in advance!! :D

    Thanks seppalta! I'll try it at home...

    another thing i forgot is that in the menu with the default config, the logout option works and displays a lot of options such as reboot, shutdown, etc... and without the lxpanel it only shows logout/cancel and it didn't work

    answering myself to the dual network-manager & wicd simultaneous applications, i read that the simplest way is to uninstall network-manager...

    I only need to solve the logout difference in default lxpanel and the desktop openbox menu without the panel
