Hi,

I personally don't use windowmaker, so can't
tell you how to change your menu.

But I can give you a generic idea of how you
could be able to find out how to find the info
you require (which is quite simple since you're
using slackware, too) ...

The first step would be to look at
less /var/log/packages/<windowmaker-package-version-mumble>

From that you can see:
a) where its documentation lives
and
b) where/what potential candidates for
configuration files are ...


HIH


Cheers,
Tink

There is an excellent and easy to use menu editor in WindowMaker. I'm in kde at he moment so forgive my fogginess. Double click one of the 3 icons at the top right part of the screen and that will start the WM configuration utility. One of the modules involves the menu. It's just a matter of dragging a menu item-type to the menu, renaming it, and entering the command to start the program. Very simple - even easier than fluxbox.

hint: start kmenuedit from an xterm so you can easily see how to start some of the progs you may want.
