[SOLVED] Openbox menu won't open programs

Post by biuge » Fri Jun 15, 2018 10:21 pm

Hey, I'm really new to this so forgive me if this is a dumb question - I searched a bit on the forums and didn't turn up with anything.

So when I right click to access the openbox menu and click on certain entries, they can't open. However, I can open the applications through app search.
The error is

Code: Select all

Failed to execute child process "exo-open" (No such file directory)
This isn't the case with all apps, but just for a select few (terminal, web browser, file manager, and a few other options).
Thanks!

You need to install "exo" if you want to use its scripts.

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S exo

Code: Select all

Okay, that fixed some entries, but I still can't open 'Xfce4 Settings Manager'.

Code: Select all

No such file or directory
Thanks again - also I'm on Arco Linux, not D :)

If you do not run the scripts - best way to figure out what you are missing
