Fluxbox menu dosen't work

Well, there isn't anything more to say about this. There should be a right-click fluxbox menu, but if i click, nothing happens. I have already auto-generated a menu, and there is a menu file under ~/.fluxbox. Why is there no menu?

Are there any errors in ~/.fluxbox/log? Have you checked the syntax of your menu file (I haven't used auto generators before)? You could try a minimal menu file and see if that works and if it does, go looking for the error in your generated file.

Fluxbox recognizes the default right-click menu as RootMenu. Look in your ~/.fluxbox/keys file and see which key or mouse click is assigned to RootMenu.

It should be Mouse3 to work on right-click.

Ok, thanks. There was no key assigned to the menu. I assigned Mouse3, and now it works. By the way, how can i change the title of this thread?
