Hey i was wondering if i could get some help on my fluxbox! The problem is when i load fluxbox and i right click on the desktop at the top it says "blackbox menu" and im not runnign blackbox in running fluxbox on debian. Ive vi'ed ~/.fluxbox/fluxbox-menu and the init file and found that there both pointing to the same file and i looked at that file and it had all the fluxbox files. Ive also vi'ed `/etc/X11/fluxbox/fluxbox-menu & init! Im lost in this prob. If i could get some help ! pls

If you copy your menu file over, it won't update the name at the top correctly, do fluxbox -version and see what you get, you might just have to change the first line to resemble what you want. Heres a sniplet from my menu file.
[begin] (Fluxbox-0.9.9)
        [exec] (aterm) {aterm -tr -trsb -bw 0 -cr white -fg white +sb -sr -bg b$
        [exec] (GKrellM) {gkrellm}
        [exec] (mozilla) {/brian/openmozilla}
[EDIT]You can name it whatever you want really. Doesn't matter I guess.[/EDIT]
