you should be able to add items to it using the menu manager (edit menus in the maintenance tab of the antiX control center).

If it's Fluxbox, the menu is commonly located at ~/.fluxbox/menu and can be edited with any text editor.

We have to keep in mind that antiX's implementation of the window managers (fluxbox, icewm, and jwm) utilize a updating menu that dynamically builds from the .desktop file entries, just like the larger Desktop Environments do. These files are updated whenever a new package is installed, whenever "update menus" is run, and I think on login (not sure about that part). The personal menu is built in a similar way.

Sorry I'm late on my reply.


I'm not in antiX forum at antiX. Will search for it.

I'm using the Menu Editor in the Control Center. When I choose to remove an item, it lists all the itens that I've added previously, but it still wont show then in the menu.

Seems like a bug to me.
