[SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

Sorry for the elementary question- with some more googling I probably could have figured it out, but if someone here has a quick answer that'd be great!
My debian menu disappeared from the openbox menu. How do I get it back? It's still listed in Obmenu.

Re: [SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

As i know, debian menu is not enabled by default in statler... Do you use Crunchbang?

Re: [SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

Same problem here. Followed the instructions for installing the Debian menu but it still doesn't work. menu is installed, the lines in rc.xml and menu.xml are as they should be but there's no Debian menu showing up in the Openbox menu. even after trying openbox --reconfigure and just rebooting the computer. This seems to have happened with the newest Crunchbang 10 20120207.

Re: [SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

Did you also update menu?

sudo update-menus

Re: [SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

I did succeed with this just yesterday, following these instructions, but replacing

<menu id="Debian" />

with

<menu id="/Debian" />

The wiki says the latter is for debian sid, but it worked fine for me & and my statler-stable OB.

Edit: spelling roll

Re: [SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

I'm running Statler, and when I first started it, it had several menus and submenus of applications, etc. I'm assuming that is the Debian menu.

That DID work! I've been on the Openbox wiki before but didn't see that item about sid.

Hm... This didn't work either... And neither did update-menus. Any other ideas?

No it is not debian menu, it is custom statler specific menu smile. Try this:

cp /etc/skel/.config/openbox/menu.xml $HOME/.config/openbox/

restart openbox

openbox --restart

That gives you statler default menu. To have debian menu also enabled add this line in menu.xml:

<menu id="/Debian" />

then uncomment following lines in rc.xml:

commented:

<!-- system menu files on Debian systems
    <file>/var/lib/openbox/debian-menu.xml</file>
    <file>debian-menu.xml</file>  -->

uncommented:

<!-- system menu files on Debian systems -->
    <file>/var/lib/openbox/debian-menu.xml</file>
    <file>debian-menu.xml</file>

restart openbox

openbox --restart

Re: [SOLVED] Debian menu disappeared

I've noted that on my debian boxen, I have

<menu id="Debian"/>

while this doesn't work on #!.

On #!, it has to be

<menu id="/Debian"/>

The only difference being the leading /  in there.
I don't know why the leading slash is needed there, but apparently it is.
I thought it was a typo on the wiki page, until I tried to add the Debian menu on my #! lappy and it didn't work, until I added in that slash.
