Amjad,

I also run Window Maker, and I have the same thing.

The cause is simple, when Window Maker installs it comes with a =
precompiled list of menus to present the user with, irrespectice of =
whether the underlying application has been installed or not.=20

Check the application you are trying to run is installed with pkg-info.

A case in point is netscape, which always is in the menu under Window =
Maker, but has to be installed separately from the ports.

Window Maker does allow you to configure what is in the menus, and it's =
worth playing around a little bit.

Cheers,

Jon

        Hello,

        I installed FreeBSD 4.6 on my PC and used WindowMaker as my =
window manager.=20

        The program installed Ok. When i am in Windowmaker and try to =
open any application, i get error :

         "Could not execute command : " exec (program name)

        What could be the problem. Please can anybody help me.
