Can't get Icons in Openbox Menus

I somehow tweaked around too much and hosed my last install, so I’ve just reinstalled Archlabs. Before I hosed my install I had gotten it so that I had icons in my Openbox menu. I can’t for the life of me remember what I did to get them. Does anyone have any ideas?

Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.



Hi @sharkytowers if you install obmenu-generator, you can then use that to change your menu items including adding icons to your menu.


@sharkytowers Hey man, another option would be to replicate what @PackRat has done and assign a mouse binding to jgmenu. See here, scroll to nearly the bottom to see what he’s done, pretty nifty. I’m sure he’d share with you the hows if you asked. :slight_smile:


I had to run obmenu from command line:

obmenu-generator -s -i

and it worked. just putting this here for future searches.


@sharkytowers For those of you who actually like icons in obmenu… :stuck_out_tongue:

Would you mind please marking this as solved. Just makes it easier for others searching for the same answer.

Thanks :slight_smile:

@anon37345411 No problem. Done and done.
