! I'm just getting my feet wet with AfterStep and have read the FAQ and

! "Update Startmenu" option under "Start -> Quit".  The startmenu itself
! I can only find on my system under

! /usr/share/afterstep/* at all. Do I have a misconfiguration here?
! system is Linux RH5.1 with AfterStep- installed from tarred

	The startmenu file is created from the (global)
/usr/share/afterstep/start or (local) ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/start
dir tree. has the (menu)->Quit->Update startmenu as the
default.  Might you have upgraded and not mv'd over your existing
non-configurable/ dir?  The file name which puts this entry is called
/usr/share/afterstep/start/Quit/9_updatestart .
