How to create Debian menu for Openbox

This may also work for other WM like Fluxbox and TWM.

The Debian menu builds a menu from all the installed applications on your system and nicely organises them. I believe it also keeps it updated when you install new software so you do not have to manually add items to your Openbox menu.

To install it use:

sudo aptitude install menu

After it is installed run:

sudo update-menus

To enable the menu in Gnome go to the desktop panel menu:

System / Preferences / Main Menu and enable the Debian menu under Applications.
