This quick remedial how to is out of date in the sense that there is now a GUI launcher for this function. However, it might remain useful as information for people who may have removed that launcher from main menu -> preferences -> desktop preferences

And now you're getting open box's menu with terminal and so on when you wanted to change your desktop wallpaper?

If so, then fear not, it's easy to get back pcmanfm's regular right-click menu. In a console or run box enter

Code:
pcmanfm --desktop-pref


And this will bring up a dialogue, click on the Advanced tab and uncheck the sole option regarding the window manager's menu.

By way of explanation, that other right click menu is the window manager's, which is called Open Box and upon which LXDE runs. If you log in to an Open Box session without editing Open Box's menu first (e.g. by using obmenu), that's the right-click menu you'll be left with (and open box doesn't launch lxpanel by default, so there will not be a "start button" either - see the howto on running openbox for more speed on this board for more info). Anyway, the right-click menu we're accustomed to is actually pcmanfm's, the file manager's, hence the command to launch it with its desktop preferences menu.
