Where are olvwm/olvwm menu definition files supposed to be?

Post by Shoel Perelm » Mon, 04 Jul 1994 08:42:07

I've finally got the command "openwin" to at least do SOMETHING b;esides
exit back to shell.  Now i just get a nice blue screen, nice looking mouse
cursor... Nothing else.  If i click and drag with the left button, i drag
open a frame (when i let go, it disappears and leaves nothing).  If i click
onthe rifht button, a tall box openes up.  Acutaly this frame runs vertically
from top to bottom of screen (no top border, but it has has nice side borders
as if a window manager definetely made it to put stuff in).  Its a grey background...
However, there are NO options in it.  Nothing to select.  Anyone have any
ideas?  I can't seem to do anything because this menu has no popntions iniit.
Which file/where should this file be that contains the info to bput in this

please e-mail to
