NAME

       deskmenu - A root menu for X

SYNTAX

       deskmenu <argument>

DESCRIPTION

       DeskMenu is a root menu program which is activated by clicking the root
       window.  It  is  configured  from  a  .deskmenurc  file  in  your  home
       directory, see example_rc for more details.

       You  can use deskmenu for session management by making it the last line
       of your .xinitrc and using the --quit command line option, which adds a
       quit option to the menu.

       NOTE:  Deskmenu  will  do nothing unless you have a ${HOME}/.deskmenurc
       file or  a  /etc/deskmenurc  (/etc/deskmenurc.debian  is  automatically
       generated)
       This manpage is specific to the debian package of deskmenu.
       IMPORTANT  NOTE:  You have to set a keycode, when using this version of
       keylaunch, in your config file.

AUTHORS

       Ken Lynch <kenlynch@blueyonder.co.uk> (c) 2001
       Ken stopped developing on Deskmenu in late 2001.

       This manpage was written for  the  Debian  GNU/Linux  package  of  this
       program   by  Brandon  L.  Griffith  <brandon@debian.org>  because  the
       origonal program did not include one. You are free to edit,  translate,
       convert,  or  otherwise  do  anything  you wish with this manpage. This
       program was patched with a diff from Martin Hedenfalk <mhe@hjome.se> to
       allow submenu recursion.  Updated and added to the official deskmenu by
       Stefan Pfetzing <dreamind@dreamind.de>
