Re: fvwm95 stuffed up - StartMenu gone

You could try a ~/.fvwm95rc (which ?would? overide the /etc one).  

The relavent sections of mine are:

AddToMenu /Debian
+ "Debian Menu" Title
# note I only use my own menus, you might want:
# Read /etc/<whatever>/menudefs.hook, for the autogenerated stuff
Read .fvwm95/menudefs.hook 
Read .fvwm95/main-menu.hook
AddToMenu /Debian
+ "" Nop
+ "Exit Fvwm" Popup Quit-Verify 
# quit verify is defined later 

# Then later:
#------------------ FvwmTaskBar
# some stuff
*FvwmTaskBarStartMenu /Debian
# This is probably where your problem is: you have /StartMenu where
# I have /Debian directly above, and no 'AddToMenu /StartMenu's

If you like, if this doesn't fix it, I can send you more details from my
config files, but I don't just want to dump them on this list.
