I believe the file is:


where ~ = Home directory.

I suggest you look at a program called "MenuMaker", it can automatically generate menu's for you, its very nice.

Ok thanks! just figured out that you can put a "." before the folder to open folders that you can see in the file managers...

With mandy 9.1 I had success with changing the fluxbox menus by using menudrake, although it would not update the menu unless I specifically picked blackbox as the environment (listed on the toobar) I presume that the system sees fluxbox as blackbox due to its parentage.
Hope that helps
