right mouse button menu

under HP-UX 10.20, I used to have a little thing where if I right clicked on the desktop I would get a menu listing programs that could run, for example netscape and stuff. however after a reboot, I have lost this function. Is there a configuration file anywhere that you can add the paths of programs so that they can be run from the mouse button?

Not sure if it is applicable to HP-UX, but the CDE Workspace Menu configuration is in $HOME/.dt/dtwmrc in Solaris.

these functions are generally available in two locations in HP-UX.
1. the $HOME/.dt/dtwmrc which is meant and customized to the user
2. /usr/dt/dtwmrc. this is the default one.

whenever you boot your system, it first looks for the customized one as in 1 otherwise it takes 2. I think you have got some problem with your system.
better check it out.
