for the benefit of other debian users in the listening audience, could
you mention where such a script can be found?

i did a google search for "openbox3 debian menu script" and didn't find
anything significant on the single page of results.

i compiled the debian source packages from
http://www.hetzi.at/thomas/debian (i run stable with several packages
backported from unstable/testing) and i didn't see it include any
script, and it definitely doesn't put anything into /etc/menu-methods. 
i looked in the openbox3 rc tarballs and didn't see anything there

the lack of a menu script kept me from doing anything more than just
building and looking at openbox3.  i finally learned about menumaker
over at xfce.org (my primary desktop), which supports openbox3 (but not
the active menus part; is monitoring and reloading of menu file a
planned feature?), and just started trying to use openbox3 now that i
finally have menus.

thanks for openbox!
