Unhappy Fluxbox and menu items


I installed fluxbox 0.9.8 and everything went well. Except for the menu...

I right click on the desktop and the only items for the menu are xterm. restart and exit.

How do I get my menu to have my programs?

Thanks in advance!

You can edit the menu by editing the /home/<username>/.fluxbox/menu file!

you can also run fluxbox-generate_menu. It probably won't detect all of your applications, but it will give you a lot more to start out with so you don't have to manually add everything.
