Hi,

I've recently installed X-Tahr Puppy and so far so good! One little thing that's bugging me though is I can't figure out how to change the name on the XFCE menu. I can change the icon, but not the name (see image). Any ideas how I can change this? Thanks.

Short answer you can't, it's hard coded, Whisker menu usually shows the user name "root" so the code was edited before it was compiled which also includes changes to layout and button functions.

But if you were to use a hex editor you can modify the name, see HERE

Thanks. I did a text search last night for x-tahr and found:

/usr/lib/xfce4/panel/plugins/libwhiskermenu.so

I figured that was the one, but when I tried viewing it in a text editor, nothing was displayed. I'll install a hex editor tonight and have a look.
