WindowMaker Debian Menus

After two or so years on KDE I decided to go back to WindowMaker. This is mainly for the benefit of performance and less clutter. There is one frustration though - menus :-)

When you install WindowMaker on Ubuntu, the "menu" package is not automatically installed, so you have to manually add it afterwards with "apt-get install menu". After each application you install, it's a good idea to update the menus by executing "sudo update-menus" to update the file "/etc/X11/WindowMaker/menu.hook".

You can use the WindowMaker Configuratio utility to add a "debian" menu, which points to the above file.

That's it - all your applications on the standard Gnome menus are now available in WindowMaker.
