Hello
I'm running Fatdog620, openbox, lxpanel

/etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml appears to use puppy menus from /etc/menus and governs the menu that opens when right-click on desktop. (that's good: I know how to work with those)

I would like to customize the menu and submenus of the panel menu button. I have been able to add an item (file search) below the first separator, by adding to /root/.config/lxpanel/default/panels/panel ("manual editing not recommended"). The top part appears to be controlled by a file called /root/.cache/menus/de55af0b9764e59aa165e392f5fe2f0 (!!), and changes I make there survive reboot. But the syntax is awkward and I'm having unintended consequences.

Is that file in .cache coming from some template somewhere? Is there a better way to customize the panel menu?

Thanks

General LXpanel config
http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201010/page07.html

Edit the top part of the panel menu
http://lxmed.sourceforge.net/index.html
Not necessary to install lxmed, just extract LXMenuEditor.jar and
Code:
java -jar LXMenuEditor.jar

To change the bottom part, edit /root/.config/lxpanel/default/panels/panel ("manual editing not recommended")
