Right clicking on the desktop yields no menu.

I tried deleting my menu.xml file and regenerating it, nothing. I tried running openbox --debug, and nothing obvious.

What else can I try?

Have you got a binding for right-click in rc.xml (openbox.org/wiki/Help:Bindings). If you try binding a key to bring up the menu, does it work? –  Paul Nov 17 '11 at 6:00

I think you have to bind the "right-click" in ./config/openbox/rc.xml

You have to lookin for Menus.

This is an example.

  <mousebind button="Right" action="Press">
    <action name="ShowMenu">

I hope your problem is about this.
