I am currently running on LXDE, and I'm curious as to whether there is a way to change the context menu when right clicking the desktop.

I'd like to replace Xterm with LXTerminal.

Is there a config I should change for this?

EDIT: For clarification, to enable the Window Manager context menu, you have to visit desktop settings->Advanced, and click the checkbox for enabling the Window Manager menu.

Could you put up an image of this "context menu"? I'm using Lubuntu 12.10, not just LXDE, and I don't see anything related to Xterm or LXterminal in the context menu I get when I right-click on the desktop. If you have problems with taking the screenshot, you could look here. – user25656 Apr 9 '13 at 1:46

@vasa1 I added a clarification for the 'Context Menu'. It's actually the Window Manager handling the right click. I'm technically using openbox-lxde – c-qjv0xfi Apr 9 '13 at 22:15
Could you modify the image so that the menu is more visible? Right now, it's isn't legible. Or have you solved your issue? If you have, why don't you post the solution as an answer? – user25656 May 10 '13 at 6:37
