Here is my mouse right click on desktop.

Now i want to change the right click,menu.xml file was edited into the following.


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <openbox_menu xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="                file:///usr/share/openbox/menu.xsd">
        <menu id="root-menu" label="Openbox 3">
                <item label="PCMan" icon="/usr/share/icons/Tango/32x32/apps/file-manager.png">
                    <action name="Execute">

The mouse right click remains unchanged after reboot,why?

right-click the desktop => preferences => advanced => show window manager menu when right-clicking
(i'm writing this from memory)

I use obmenu to edit the right-click menu. After you are done you have to reconfigure openbox, which should be under openbox preferences>reconfigure openbox

None of this helps me! When I first tried ondoho's suggestion I got a stock openbox menu. Then it disappeare, and won't come up, so I have to go back to the pre-ondoho-suggestion state. And obmenu and reconfigure don't seem to do anything either.

[PROBLEM SOLVED] The "stock openbox menu" was actually the menu.xml in my $HOME/.config/openbox directory, and I got stuck because I couldn't figure out how to reconfigure after I succeeded in mucking it up so there was no "reconfigure" to click on. Sorry for the distraction!
