maybe I'll get younger each time I login to the future! present sit is to get the Games Folder to the Menu that pops on when you click anywhere on the desktop which is or not conky? (pst I'm a diabetic with sometimes severe memory problems. enough whining i'm here to learn
Sorry got the wrong thing I'll shift to help& support stable "pipe menu please help" if that's ok
Hi again looking for help/guidance to bring "Games folder to Pipe Menu"
-moderator edit- I merged the threads and updated your title - hhh
Still not sure what you are meaning? (NB "menu" and "pipemenu" are different things)
Do you want your "Games" directory to show up in the Menu -> Places item? If it is in $HOME it should there appear anyway.
If you have the directory eg on another drive, then add a symlink to it in $HOME so it shows up in Menu -> Places
Do you want a separate menu item which opens your Games directory? In which case look in Help ---> Openbox to see how to edit menu.xml. Add something like
<item label="Open Games"> <action name="Execute"> <command> bl-file-manager /path/to/Games </command> </action> </item>
Reconfigure Openbox and the new item should appear
Thank you I will look in openbox and mirror what you put in dash box for me

anyway, i think you need an applications menu, probably built dynamically into the openbox menu with something like obmenu-generator. there you'd have a games category. go to openbox.org, search for wiki and then menu, you will find.
but, given your level of expertise, maybe you should just use a panel, e.g. xfce4-panel or lxpanel.

Look in the Help menu for Openbox links.
Step 1) Back up
Step 2) Make a backup copy of any config file before you edit it
Step 3) If you make a major f***up, you can restore the default Openbox configs from /usr/share/bunsen/skel/.config/openbox/
