Help with menu item in fluxbox


I've loaded fluxbox on an ubuntu server base and am trying to get adesklets modubar in the menu for quick loading when I want it. The only way I've been able to have it load so far is to navigate to the ./fluxbox folder and type ./modubar

I cannot figure out how to get this command in my menu so that it works though. I've tried a few different ideas:

{/home/myname/.fluxbox/./modubar}
{/home/myname/.fluxbox/{./modubar}}
and just plain old {./modubar}

I'm hoping someone has an answer for this since loading it through a terminal means I have to leave that terminal open which is a drag.

Thanks for any ideas on this!

Doesn't it work as an absolute path?
/home/myname/.fluxbox/modubar

or ~/.fluxbox/modubar of course

Failing that, make sure the menu line is something similar to this:
[exec] (Modubar) {~/.fluxbox/modubar}

Actually, there were 2 solutions

I went onto Xchat and got help there, the code (if I remember right) was this:

{cd /home/adesklets/modubar-0.0.1/ && python modubar.py}

the other solution is to add adesklets to the startup...

I'm thinking that the adesklets software is buggy though, when I open up sylpheed it closes, and is a pain to restore. It also does this once in a while with Mozilla open.

I might try to find something better.
