    Question fluxbox not showing root (right click) menu

    hello,

    i have ubuntu gutsy installed on my notebook. i wanted to try fluxbox, so i typed

    sudo aptitude install fluxbox

    and it installed fluxbox & some dependant library. when at the logging screen, i can choose the fluxbox session.

    the problem is, when i log in to the fluxbox, i cannot access the Root (right click) Menu.

    any advices on how to get in?

    thx in advance.

    Can you post the contents of your ~/.fluxbox/keys file? In my experience, that is most often the issue with things like this.

    Run this command in terminal:
    sudo update-menus

    You actually want to run "sudo update-menus" from your GNOME session, so it'll create the base Fluxbox menu for you.

    Alternately, you could just CTRL-ALT-F1 to bail out to a command-line and enter it there, I suppose. You'd need to restart your Fluxbox session to make it take effect, though.
